wait wait wait...

Are you telling me when I do the same thing in real life conversation and I see that response, that its NOT them walking away in defeat because my opinion is the only correct one?? And I always thought they were getting me a beer as a peace offering, but only forgot halfway through.

Back on topic....

sort of

I guess not fuuny, but anecdotal. I love when people who have no idea that you can make beer yourself talk to me (a coworker was just doing this). They are always so amazed at the process, equipment, and ability. So am I still, truth be told, but it is just cool seeing those reactions. Reminds me of my first brewery tour where everything inspired awe.

From my uncle in-law while drinking a 9% barleywine I made "this is pretty close to Sam Adams" I just said thank you ,as he meant it as a near compliment.

They do make a barley wine.... he could be more of a beer connoisseur than you thought!

I brewed a Belgium wheat. Turned out fantastic, one of my best brews truth be told.

My brother comes over, he thinks Pacifico is craft beer and the best thing on the planet.

He sees my keg-r-ator, grabs a glass and we have the following conversation:

Bro: "what's this?"

Me: "it is a Belgium wheat beer, kind of like a hoegarrden".

Bro: "hmmmm......I don't like hoegarrden"

Me: "then pour a small one"

He then proceeds to pour a full pint, takes a drink.

Bro: "hmmmm....that would be a good marinade".

Then pours the rest out in the sink.



He has not had any more of my brews for the past 2 years.

So that qualifies as funny things I have heard about beer!!!!!

Went to TGI Fridays today because I got a gift card. Beer selection was pretty bad so I settled with one I hadn't had but seemed most likely to be a decent "craft" brew

Me: ill have a newcastle brown ale
Waitress: a Newcastle?? (Looks confused)
Me: (trying to help the confusion) do you need my ID or something?
Waitress: umm it's a drink?
I nod
Waitress: um yes please let me see it, anyone who looks under 40 sorry no offense
Me: oh no problem
Waitress: so a new, castle? That's a beer or a cocktail? Sorry I don't drink much

I tend not to be rude to people handling my food and drinks, also I am fairly certain she was new, and she was extremely polite, and apologetic, so I'm not going to flip out on some poor waitress like a dbag, but if she wasn't new then what the hell is wrong with her? I don't care if you don't drink you should know what your restaurant is selling. I have a feeling many people besides myself ask before almost anything else, "what do you have on draft?"

Oh and she came back to tell me they were out of newcastle, so I still haven't had it, is this a good beer?

You shouldn't drink 20 of them. Hilarious!
