I would have handed the glass to him and told him to bring me a fresh beer and a clean glass.

I was at a graduation party last night for a family member, and overheard something a guy was saying... I immediately thought of this thread.

Guy at the party- "Guinniss is so thick it will stay cold all day"... everyone laughs, other guy says "oh yeah, that stuff is thick.."

That only dark beers are lagers

... even if the waiter was lousy at his or her job... if they try their best.. then I tip good. But to pour a bottle after the customer said not to.... that's a 50 cent tip.

I'd leave a single penny...or maybe even a peso

I have to keep explaining to a coworker the difference between ales and lagers. She told a customer today that a session pale ale is a basic ale. I asked her what she meant by that, she replies, "well all ales are the same. "

I had to make a diagram showing her the different styles and that ales are for sure not the all the same. Hopefully I broke through to her, but unfortunately I doubt it :/.

I agree. I can't tip well when they deliberately denied my wishes.

It should be simple. The waiter removes the glass and bottle. Returns with a new bottle and glass. Now, the waiter steps away slowly, only touching the bottle again to bus the table.

Drinking at my buddy's house (who I brew with), and his wife asked if she should keep the bottle we had just drank to reuse. I told her it was a Belgian bottle and we typically don't use them...there was a long conversation about the fact that we'd need a corker, so I showed her one in the Northern Brewer catalog that was on the table, and she said,

"A Portuguese floor corker? Sounds like a crazy sex move!"

I haven't laughed that hard in a REALLY long time.
