Default Anouther Great experience out to eat!!!

I went out to eat last night at a spot called Bar louie's. They have a good draft beer selection, and some good deals for happy hour. So I sit down, and my Dad has allready ordered a bucket of yellow fizz, so I decide to order a good beer before I attempt to help him down his crap. So i ask what craft beers that have on draft. Waitress tells me they have Bell's 2 hearted, and winter ale. Perfect!! I love 2 hearted. She comes back 5 minutes later, and tells me they are out of 2 hearted, so I say no prob, i'll take the winter ale. She come back with a Cloudy blonde hefe style beer. I knew right off the bat that it was the wrong beer, but I decided to try it anyway. I'm not sure if it was even from bells, but it was some sort of summer beer, or hefeweizen. It was good, but not what I ordered....plus I just had a winter ale the day before, and was in the mood for more. I told the waitress it was the wrong style beer, and she told me NO it's not!!, I explainded that winter ales are usually brown, to darker in color, and that i just had one the day before...(not to metion I toured their brewery) She then tells me I'm wrong, and that it is for sure the bell's winter ale. Also that she has been serving it all night, and that she watched the bar tender pour it. So I say that I'm not trying to be a jerk, and that the beer she served me is good, but it is not what the said it is, and that maybe they have the lines mixed. By this time i'm sure she is not listening and rolling her eyes at me

So I drop it, drink my hefe summer beer, help my dad finish his Bud, and pay the bill leave a tip, and walk next store to the next bar. They have Sam Adams winter ale, i have 2 of those and enjoy myself. I was steaming for a bit them cooled off, I wanted to go to the store and buy a 6er of the winter ale and bring her back one to prove my point. But after I got I my car, It didn't seem worth it anymore.

Question.....Should I call the manager today, just to inform him the lines are crossed? Or just drop it?

You should probably let the bartender know, he might have his taps mixed up.

Bell's makes two winter beers. One is like an english pale ale but really hoppy, the other is a belgian wit style which I am guessing you got. Neither is brown. I think you are wrong on this one.

ETA: The only one called "winter" is the wit. The other one I described is "Christmas Ale".

HAHAHA, I suggest you go back to the restaurant and apologize to the waitress.

I "C" where this is going.

I love me some winter white!!!! Pretty tasty.

Primetime, it sounds like you at least you weren't a total db to her, so your crow is only a small bite. (Winter white goes good with bird, btw.)
