Haha. This happened at a little town dive bar my wife and I stopped at while camping. The guy who waited on us was the owner it turns out, but the placed was packed and I think he was flustered. I am pretty sure he knew what they had, just didnt have to say it in a while. As I looked around 90% of the people were drinking Busch Light in cans.

Setting: A small liquor store with a tiny beer selection in Massachusetts. I'm talkin' Sam Adams, Wachusett, and some unknown "Hops R Us" marketing trainwreck.

Checkout clerk: "nice choice!" (referring to beer, obviously lying)
Me: ... (skeptical)
Clerk: Do you drink wine at thanksgiving?
Me: No (not in the mood to talk)
Clerk: So you only drink beer then?
Me: ... Fine, I drink wine.
Clerk: We got thanksgiving wine! (points to a flyer advertising pumpkin wine)
Me: ....Thanks. (WTFH?)

Funny story!

But, to be quite honest, I have a similar reaction to pumpkin beer... and I've never seen a winery who thinks bacon would be a great addition....

Fat guy sitting at the bar at a local BBQ place. Orders a Pumkin Porter from the tap. Gets it and proceeds to brag to the whole establishment in a loud voice. "I know my beers and I love a good German beer" as he raises his glass and takes a sip. SWMBO thought my facial expression was priceless. Just another reminder I live in a backwater.

I have a few stories to add to this...

1st - at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Niagara Falls USA on lunch from work. I wasn't drinking, but I had to take a look at the beer menu. They listed Southern Tier IPA and Flying Bison Rusty Chain as "Imports". Flying Bison is a local brewery about 10 miles down the road, and Southern Tier is about a 2 hour drive from Niagara Falls. Where exactly were they imported from??? If I remember right, the same menu had Corona as "domestic".

2nd - I was at a small pizza place around the corner from my house. I asked the waitress for a beer menu. I wasn't expecting much, as the place is small and somewhat of a dive - maybe just a Sam Adams? She says "Oh, we have EVERYTHING, what do you like?". Ok, I'll bite - I'm sure they don't have what I *want*, and I did ask for the menu... I respond "Do you have Southern Tier Krampus?"
Her: "huh? no..."
Me: "Ok, do you have Ithaca Nut Brown?"
Her: "No.... I'll just tell you what we have.... we have bud, bud light, miller, miller lite, coors, coors light, Heinekin, Yeungling, and Shock Top".
Me: "ugh, I'll have a Heinekin please..."

3rd - We have a good brewpub downtown that typically has 10+ taps of their own brew, and only one other tap that's not theirs. They keep Labatt Blue on tap there as their American headquarters are a few blocks away, and they get a lot of Canadian visitors due to their proximity of the Sabres Arena... My roommate at the time and I went there one night, and the place was kind of dead. We spent the night talking to the one bartender who knew a lot about their brewing process. He seemed really interested to talk to us about the beer and we were equally happy to chew his ear off all night. At one point a customer comes up to the bar and is leaning over with his cash waiting for the bartender. As he steps away from this great discussion about craft beer and the brewing process, all happy to have customers just as interested he walks over to the other customer.... The customer says "uh, yeah, can I get a Labatt?". The bartender seemed kind of angered by this - turn around, quickly grabs the bottle, opens it, slams it on the bar and says "that'll be $4". The guy pays him and walks away.
My roommate and I thought this was pretty funny, but sad for him at the same time... I can't blame him really - you're in a brewpub with 10 GREAT beers available. They even charge the same for Labatt as they do their own beers... why would you pick Labatt? The brewpub has a beer similar to Labatt on tap that tastes better anyway.... Not trying to be a snob, but it just seems like going to Red Lobster for chicken...

Good point. But a large majority of people don't know beer. It only gets funny when this majority thinks they know beer in a public place. This guy probably walked up to the bar and asked for the only thing he could pronounce. I pity the foo.
