Just posted this on another thread, but is kinda appropriate here too. Visiting swmbo's relatives in Denver last week, never met 'em before. Guy in his 20s says "Let's go hit Breckenridge Brewery after dinner." Of course I said "Sure!" With dinner, I pour him one of my 12oz Saisons (typical 4.5% ABV). After dinner, he leaves with his mom and step-dad. I tell swmbo "So I guess that's a no on the brewery?" She says "He got drunk off your beer." I'm not sure what to think about this one. Funny though. Still wanna hit Breckenridge. Maybe next trip.

Had a good one during NHC... Not funny for someone's ignorance or anything like that, but a funny and actually meaningful suggestion.

So SWMBO and I had run down the street for lunch one day, and hit a little pub. We were sitting at the bar, talking to the bartender. And the conversation came around pretty quickly to what brought us into town, and when she heard about the fact that I was a brewer, she asked if my wife brewed too. We explained that she does not, but she does contribute ideas for things she'd like me to brew - we even keep a running "wish list" on the kegerator of her ideas. The bar tender looked up at us and said "cool, like a honey-brew list?"

The name has stuck.

Always getting it from the brewery, try to keep some cans in stock and I still get excited when I see it on tap at restaurants.... sacrilegious
