Not sure what was said before and after, but is there any context that makes it appropriate to say- "That's not even beer, its like water" while holding a Michelob Ultra?

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Maybe they were talking to someone drinking Odouls.

Not about beer but a cousin of...heard around the campfire while discussing our poison of choice:
"Fruit brandy is the $h1t, that stuff will mess you up, it is 200% alcohol" no one cared to disagree haha

The guy who runs quizzo had one last night and said, "I recommend this for anyone who likes seltzer with a slight beer flavor."

I asked the bartender why was it under imports and she looked at me like I was some kind of idiot. She says "because it's an import". I kindly said "well, it's brewed in Golden, CO". She looks at me for a few seconds and says "well, it's an import" and walked away.
I had a similar experience but it was "domestic" and "premium" beers...

That's one poor selection.

Yep. The food's awesome so I'm happy they at least have Fat Tire and Red Hook (usually means ESB if that's all they say in the menu) so I have something to drink. Although, lately they've started having a seasonal or two that they don't put on the menu, so they're learning.

It just cracked me up that Corona was listed as "premium".

I went in to my LHBS a few months ago and Stan the main sales guy was shaking his head. A couple guys came in and wanted to buy equipment and supplies to make Bud Light. Stan told them... "It would be cheaper to buy it." They persisted and he finally said "I don't even know how to brew something as bad as Bud Light." I joked he should sell them a single light LME can and a pound of rice flakes, have them make a 5 gallon batch and then add an extra gallon of water after it finished fermenting.
Missed out on a solid opportunity for a sale/conversion.
