I’ve always been a creative guy. For example, when I was a kid I used to draw sunsets and mountains on everything. I programmed my first computer when I was around 12 which by today’s standards is over the hill for such precociousness but back then I was the only kid I knew who could program a computer.
Today I still program computers and brew beer as a creative outlets. Creating new beer recipes is only one aspect of the brewing process that is creative. There’s also the bottle labels, kegerator and fermenter placards, and other ancillary do-dads and thingamajigs we Homebrewers get to play with.
