Guys, talking about people who don't know as much about beer as you do isn't funny. Let's get back to funny things we've overheard about beer!

My brother told a guy that came into his shop that I brew my own beer. The guy then preceded to ask my brother if I "made hot beer or cold beer?"

The only thing I can think he MIGHT have been referring to was lagering, but I highly doubt that. If I was around to hear that I probably would have turned around walked away.

Maybe he was thinking about the German's who prefer their beer warm? Definitely a funny comment though!

I thought that was the British. The Germans make their beer cold.

I know I've seen similar threads on here but I couldn't find any so I figured I'd start a new one.

A pronoun? What is the antecedent of this pronoun?

He's using it as a proper name of a beer style,rather than as the generic descriptor it is.
