But the mystique surrounding it for them is kind of funny. I've heard many people talking about how !@#$ed up they've gotten on Guinness because it is so strong. But as us refined, completely non-snobby beer connoisseurs know, it is equal in strength to a Coors Light. Always fun to bring up this little fact when someone is talking about the strength of Guinness.
Wow! I've heard the same thing from a co-worker of mine who insists that Guiness gets him drunk faster than other beers of the same abv. He also tells me he enjoys "ice cold" Guiness in a 22 oz. frosted mug at his favorite restaurant. whatever!

It's not beer specifically but I couldn't leave this out... I've heard a bartender say "did you know cider is made from apples?"

Heard a guy once trying to act like a beer aficionado to his wife, went about like this....
"lagers are supposed to be served ice cold as possible, and pilsners too"

Another great one..." Why does Youngs put a ping pong ball in the can?"

Yea, reading some of the posts on here remind me about coming full circle in five months abotu beer. four months ago I would look down on people who drink BMC. Today, I don't, because the only reason why I don't drink BMC anymore is because I've tasted other things I like better, and going back to BMC is like drinking water---neither good nor bad, just not enjoyable for me. and I know some of the stuff I make, while many people into craft beers would enjoy it, some of the people I know would drink it and absolutely hate it. and that's fine. I drink what I like, and would try anything once. i've even heard people apologize to me for liking BMC stuff, and i tell them to drink what they like, and don't apologize to anyone because you like it--BUT, the critical thing is, be willing to try other things. if you go back to liking Bud Light, at least be sure to try other things.

the worst thing in the world IMO is to never try anything else.

Coworker at the pub the other day: "Dark beer has more calories"
She was drinking a Palm (172 cal/12 oz) while I was drinking a Smithwicks (150 cal/12 oz)

Of course they were serving mine in 20 oz glasses while hers were in those cute little Palm goblets

Reviving this thread because of something I saw the other day. I was sitting at an airport bar in Chicago and the guy sitting next to me orders a Sierra Nevada Porter. I immediately say, "Good choice" and give him some credibility. An instant later the bar tender asks if he wants a glass and he says, "No, just the bottle is fine." *facepalm* Same bar, different guy near the other end of the bar was doing the same thing to Bell's Two Hearted Ale. I respect everyone's right to enjoy their beer the way they want to, but if you're going to drink craft beer, why not enjoy it to its fullest potential?

A funny thing: I checked a post in HBT "funny things you overhead about beer" and everybody was quoting "negro modello" I think they meant "Negra Modelo"

I'm from the Midwest originally... When I told my mom I was brewing she said. "Do you make it in the bathtub?" I felt so ashamed that my mom thought I would partake in something like this but also knew that explaining the entire process would be lost in her complete disinterest for beer.

I do get bothered sometimes by the, "I prefer lagers." Or, "I don't like dark/hoppy beers." Then again, these are just people who have very novice-level beer terminology. If we didn't talk to them, the likelihood of them attempting to describe their likes would be greatly reduced.
What's wrong w/people that like lagers over ales? It's a taste thing. Me I don't like lagers unless they are dark lagers. No real taste now that I'm dark ale or hoppy ale drinker.

I was in a brewery in North Carolina, sorry don't remember the name. They only brew German style lagers. All there eqipment came from Germany. Any way on the wall was this sign.

People who drink light beer don't really like beer.

They just like to piss a lot.

LOL Thought that was so funny.
