Our kids see us drink. Don't remember the last time I was drunk.
We make ginger beer, beer, various wines and vodka.
Sounds kinda bad doesn't it.
That doesn't sound bad to me at all. If you're making beer as a hobby, then the kids are around it all the time. So there's no reason to sneak away and drink with their friends. There's no "forbidden fruit." That's why I tend to get bugged with people have liquor cabinets but refuse to drink anything in front of their kids. They think they're being responsible, but what they're really doing is telling their kids that drinking is a sign of adulthood, so in their minds it becomes a rite of passage instead.
