Haha that's awesome!

A good friend of mine tries a Honey Bee Ale I had brewed and let me know "Its okay brotha but there's just too much alcohol in these home brews". This was said while he was pounding Makers like water and chasing it with Miller Lite.

Never had torpedo myself, but it always looked like it was very close in color to the PA... not like they handed you a Coors.
Yeah I will account for that. I went to a crappy college bar for a friend of a family members birthday. Being a little poor that week and with the bar only having BMC and Guinness and I was not feeling the Guinness that night ordered a BL draft. What I got was... watery-cidery rather than watery-beery. I think they gave me some sort of angry orchard (their cider on tap) snakebite only with BL. It could not be a straight cider and definitely was not a beer. Yuck.

"Yeah I think I'm gonna set half of these aside to age for a few months" - referring to this year's Hopslam.

You'd think if someone was to be spending ~$18 on a 6 pack they'd educate themselves at least a little about the beer they were buying.

What? That hop flavor and aroma doesn't just keep getting better and better with time? :P

On a kinda similar note, at Philly Beerfest, Cricket Hill has a Coors tap, that pumps out water to clean your glass

I heard this dumb 13 year old girl saying beer kills brain cells, makes you gain weight, and destroys your liver.

Was like.. bitch I ain't that fat.. YET.

To be fair, I know enthusiasts and brewers who do this for kicks, all in the name of science. Your situation may have been different, but I've seen this by well educated brewers just because they could.
