She'd probably like double IPAs then. Bell's is quite malty, it reminds me of Dogfish 90. Lots of people prefer double IPAs before standard IPAs because they're more balanced, then the palate wreckage commences.

Here's the original Keystone Bitter Beer Face commercial. The can should say IPA instead of BITTER BEER.

Haha I remember this commercial from my youth. I just saw the little fine print that says "Based on IBU Bitterness rating points." Haha, if I had noticed that as a kid I would have been like Wtf.

I've had her try a few...90 min, Hopslam, I don't remember what else. Nothing else has appealed yet. Oh well, it's a start.

After telling someone that I was brewing a farmhouse IPA next I got the response: "Oh, what kind of farm do you live on?"

So, this isn't funny, just annoying:


I'm sitting at the bar waiting to order, and the guy next to me orders a bud light and a "lager." Yes, I know this means yuengling, but to me, it sound like the dumbest thing you could say at the bar, outside of "I'll take a liquor."

Had he come into the place I bartend, I would have told him to figure out what he wants then come back.

This one was slightly funny when it happened, but funnier later. Theres a distributor by me that sells mostly BMC and soda, but recently started selling some craftier beers and good imports. I never had Shiner bock so i grabbed a six pack and continued looking. The kid that works there says to his co worker "Yo dawg, have you ever tried Shiner bock? It's mad expensive, but that sh!t tastes just like michelob ultra". I almost put it back but figured everyone has their own tastes so i'll give it a shot. After tasting it when i got home, it became even funnier.

The fact that "Lager" means Yuengling in its home market is a credit to the fact that its so popular, its the default.

That might piss you off, but ignoring it or acting like its wrong just because its not your favorite seems silly.
