At a local brewpub where we do a beer panel every two weeks sampling various styles of a theme (this week was great american beers including SNPA, Anchor Liberty, Shiner Bock, etc), about the Liberty to me: It's dry hopped so it has that *squints eyes, makes smacking sounds with mouth* dry thing at the end.

His wife always comes with him and she obviously doesn't like beer, made a squinty face at every one and dumped the rest in her husbands glass, I don't know why they come.

I am defiantly not the best at putting my thoughts int o spoken words. This sounds like something I would say. Does not mean I do not enjoy trying other beers and hearing others opinions..Just using "correct" terms is something I have a harder time doing. As for the wife... your guess is as good as mine as why she is there.

I don't like hop bitterness; hop flavor is tolerable; and hop aroma is fine. For me, that "dry thing at the end" comes from bittering at the beginning of the boil, not from dry hopping. Seems to me that statement comes from lack of knowledge about brewing, not lack of communication skill. But I don't like hops, so I could be wrong.

I love watching non-beer drinkers pretend to like beer and sound knowledgeable about it... always a laugh! Even more so for the wine crowd.

He kept talking after that, he thought dry hopping = dry finish, another guy straightened him out after about 20 minutes but I think he still thought he was right.

I had a buddy who got "DRIPA" from hot waitresses in a tiny skirt - so I try and stick to beer.

How was the Angry Orchard stout?

I recently took some co-workers several lagers I brewed, one of which was a Czech Amber session lager about the color of Shiner Bock. 3.4% alcohol and 100 calories.

One told me how thick and alcoholic that beer was and how she got a buzz after just a few sips. I explained that it had less alcohol and the same calories as Miller Lite. I could see the blank look in her eyes as I explained it.
That did not compute--she was unable to understand that a brown colored beer wasn't motor oil.

I love to watch the faces when I float the "heavy, dark, strong Stout over the clear, light APA most still don't believe that the APA is 3% higher.
