A locally owned restaurant in our area (Athens Ga) has a small but VERY good selection both on tap and bottled and their menu has three categories. There is only a $0.50 price difference and they list as: BEER - GOOD BEER - REALY GOOD BEER.

from my MIL: he adds a lot of hops so there's a lot of alcohol.
he makes dark beers, like Bud heavy.
(on my SAL @ 4%) oh! this is really strong!

old coworker: nononono! stout is not a beer, it's an ale.

It isn't just beer where people think import when it really is domestic. I've talked to adults who have never been more than one state from where they were born and they have no idea about the geography of the US let alone the rest of the world.
Back in the days of mail order (vs internet shopping) I was once charged international shipping from Virginia to New Mexico. *facepalm*

That's right. They bought they old Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewery in Over-the-Rhine, who they used to use as a contract brewer. From what I've heard, the Boston brewery is mostly just for tours and small-batch R&D brewing these days. But yeah, it bugs me to see Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Blue Moon, etc. on the "imports" list.

I've shared this before, but I was talking to a co-worker and fellow homebrewer last year and told him I was working on a black IPA. He wasn't familiar with the style, so I was describing it to him and he asked if it was going to be "really hoppy, like a Guinness."

Well, yes...and no.

Also, my MIL, who is a fan of hoppier beers, likes to tell people that she likes the "real bitter, high-IPA (meaning IBU) type beers." She's on the right track at least.

Don't know about Cincinnati but here in Boston, their brewery is very small. They only make small batches here like the Boston brick red. If you got a brewery, chances are they brew more than here. Also heard Pennsylvania has a big Sam Adams brewery.

An didn't know that. Guess it makes sense they have more than Cincy and Boston but I think the labels I've seen only mention those two cities.

Yes, just west of Allentown. The old Schaefer brewery.

yeah, trying to explain to him that lager and ale are both beer was like explaining advanced psychology to a brick.

I unfortunately can't find the pic but my buddy sent me a menu where it was distinguished as "Real Beer" and "Piss Water"

SWMBO and I went to the only bar with good beer in a town with mostly BMC bars. She didn't know what they had so she asked for a Coors light. The bartender said "No, drink something better!" Haha
