Too true. For most, a SA is the most flavor they have had in a beer. They may actually come around in due time.

I stopped at a gas station tonight on my way back to my hotel to get some beer. I've been told this place has the best beer selection in town, and I will say, their selection is very wide. They still have spring seasonals...mmmm, yummy.
Anyway, I got a sixer of New Belgium Snowday, and when I went to the counter the girl asked me if this was a dark beer. I said, "well, yeah...it's dark, but it's tastes lighter than it looks and it's hoppy". She said, "oh like ummm...have you ever had amber bock? Or is it dark like an IPA?". I didn't know what to say and there were now people behind me waiting, so I politely said, "you should just try it and see what you think, I like it."

WOW!

My wife overheard a woman at her work the other day telling someone that Saki is one of the strongest forms of alcohol.

Another one...

My father enjoys good beer thanks to my influence but God love him he is retarded when it comes to beer knowledge no matter how much I try and educate him. One time we were at a restaurant and the waiter asked him what he wanted to drink and he says "I want either an ale or a lager." The waiter just stared at him not knowing if he was screwing with her. He wasn't so I just told her to bring him a Newcastle.

I'm sure someone posted this but when I was at a BBQ one of the old school beer guys (the I like change with my 10 for a case of beer kind) asked me if I had brought and "drought" beer, and I looked at him really confused. He said you know like Guinness. I responded with oh you mean a Stout, yeah I happen to have some Guinness since I heard you liked it. You know the normal boring social conversations.

But he was intent on proving me a "beer snob" wrong. he gets the bottle and gets a big sheisse essen grin on his face and turns the bottle around and proclaims he was right, and points out that on the label below Guinness is the word "draught" I have a little chuckle and explain that's the method they use to get a very specific pour with the Guinness to simulate how it would naturally pour from a cask. And went to Beer Advocate to show him it was Dry Irish stout.

Isn't sake one of the strongest non-distilled alcohols, on average?
Beer =6%
Wine =14%
Saki = 20%
That's my understading of the averages of each. VERY generally speaking

Sake is generally diluted to 15% according to Wikipedia but yeah. Still this lady was making it out to be like Everclear or something like that.

My thoughts exactly. You should endeavor to, umm, educate her.
