Your LHBS put this in their newsletter?

Latest funny one: A colleague knows I brew, he asks me about my beer and another colleague mentions:
-I do not like ales, they are too flat

Since he comes from Germany I tell him that beer are ales or lagers and that most German beer would be ales. His answer:
-So Guiness is an ale?
ME: Yes
HIM: Wrong, this is a Stout!!
<3 that Howling Gale Ale.

Howling Ale is not bad at all, 2 others I really like here are the Ohara Irish Pale Ale and the Rowers

It's the same thing in the opposite direction. When I tell friends in Germany that I like American beer, they think BMC, I think craft.

That is a retarded statement!
Forget the fact that homebrewers can get batch after batch to be within 1%ABV of their target. The laws for commercial brewing mandate that ABV has to be consistent.
I don't know if the woman was stupid, or trying her own marketing gimmick, but it pisses me off a little either way.

Buddy hanging out while I was brewing:

Buddy: "What's that stuff you're spraying on everything?"

Me: "Sanitizer, but it's cool. It's food grade. You could actually ingest it and be fine, and it doesn't affect the beer's flavor."

Buddy: Squirt, squirt in the mouth..."HACCCHHH, HACCCHHH! Why'd you let me do that???"

Another time...

Buddy: "Is it ok to eat one of these pellets?"

Me: "Yeah, but I wouldn't..."

Buddy: Chomp, chomp "Oh, citrusy and bitter!"

Me: "Good luck with that."

Buddy: "Ahh, that's intense."

Me: "Yep."

Buddy: Later, "Oh, that really stays with you."
Buddy: Next day, "Man, I tried brushing my teeth...didn't really help."

120 Minute has had different ABV ranges depending on the year of release, but they certainly know what each batch finishes at. Commercial beers aren't required to be consistent, but packaging laws dictate that the packaging must reflect the actual contents. So different batches can be different ABV, but they each need to be labeled correctly.
