But Delirium Cafe has over 2000 beers. I thought they held the Guinness World Record.

WHICH ONE IS IT, WIKIPEDIA???


EDIT: I think the Brickskeller people are lying.

Back on topic: This is something that annoys me. I cant remember how many beers I've had that claim to be the strongest in the world or the oldest or the first of the style or some crap like that. It has become a joke with my wife and me. I once did a tour of a brewery where they claimed to have been the ones to invent lager. They said it was discovered by a kid who was given one of their malt drinks because he was sick. Supposidly he left the drink next to a cold window for a long time and, voila, lager was invented.

wikipedia sources this article in April 15, 2005 Washington Post

wouldn't be the first time WaPo was wrong

good catch. though it's still an amazing number of beers. we'll call it "the most in the US" until someone else can source someplace with more

(your search misspells "Brickskeller" but either way, search comes up NULL)

i try very hard not to get too snooty about lite lagers. No one wants to turn into the insufferable beer snob. I dont drink them that often, but they have their place, and are thirst quenching on a hot day when you're at a friends party and its all he has...

I grew up in an Irish household and Guinness was the gold standard. it wasn't until I had my beer awakening that i realized, Guinness really isn't that great.

I'm live in DC and I rarely go there. Its a dive for one, and a lot of the beers they say they have they just dont have. Plus, a lot of them are past their prime, they aren't kept in the right temperature, and there's a limited draft menu. The place to go to is Church Key, a beer geeks dream come true.

Pretty sure he can't breed now. (Which, in retrospect, is probably a good thing.)

Edit to add: The non-knee dislocating trick is, you use the heel of your foot in an upward striking motion. I personally thank all that is good and holy that I am nowhere near flexible enough for an accidental self-inflicted nad kick, but it can be done.
you guys are an awesome goldmine of information.... I'm setting aside the weekend for auto-gonadal pummelation practice.....

Wait, to make sure I stay on topic....

"All I can drink is Corona Extra (or some other beer) everything else gives me the @#$%s" -is there something magical in corona that prevents diarrhea?

"My beer is warm" -when it is 34-36 degrees Fahrenheit.

"No thanks, beer makes you fat" -as they are eating a giant plate of french fries with a rum and diet coke.

v.1 "That is a sissy beer" they say about craft/micros and order a BMC macro "man's beer"

v.2 "That is a sissy beer" they say about Bud Light, and then they order a Budweiser.

I could go on and on...
Good list. Here's mine:

Hipsters who drink PBR because they thinks its ironic, yet are also food snobs.

people who drink beer in a frosted glass.

OH OH OH I've got one...

My father-in-law is a bit prude'ish, and doesn't look favorably on "fun" in pretty much any kind or form... I however ended up getting his daughter pregnant after 6 years of marriage. I knew he wouldn't smoke a cigar with me, but he agreed to go "halfsies" on a beer. So I brewed a stout and called it "Poopy Diaper Ale" for our first kid. Unfortunately, it got some bacteria and didn't come out right.

I poured him a half-glass anyways to see what he thought. He took a few sips and it was obvious he didn't care for it. So I said, "Alright, well since that stunk, let me share something else with you..." I went to the fridge and grabbed another homebrew - an amber ale with paradise seed. He chuckled nervously from the dining room and said,

"Well, alright, but I DO have to drive tomorrow..."

Scene from CSI (or other criminal forensics drama):

"Notice the ovate contusions on the adductor group and scrotal hematoma."
"Yeah. Looks to me like our John Doe was into auto-gonadal pummelation."
