Meh. I used to say I prefered 'dark beers' and that meant Dos Equis and Killians. I still like those beers, but don't say things like that any more.

I was at a hotel bar in Boston, MA about 5 miles from the brewery and Sam Adams was listed under imports. Most places domestic = BMC

I brought some homebrew to a family reunion. One of my wife's aunts tried a kristallweizen and said, "Oh, that's good. That tastes just like Michelob." I was like, "Oh..." and dropped my head in shame. She noticed I didn't take the compliment as she had intended and said "no, but I really like Michelob." at which point I felt like a jerk for not just taking the compliment with some manners and I told her that I was really happy she liked it.

Auburn seemed like a foreign country to me!

(don't mean t offend but for a gullible white boy from Wisconsin the south IS a bit shocking at times!)

My roommate thought she was so badass for drinking Negro Modello. She also said "Negro Modello" with her best Spanish accent.

LMAO haha to funny.

I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, because it's highly likely that I said something like that during my younger days. What I dislike, though, is if someone who says something like that is a jerk.

I do get bothered sometimes by the, "I prefer lagers." Or, "I don't like dark/hoppy beers." Then again, these are just people who have very novice-level beer terminology. If we didn't talk to them, the likelihood of them attempting to describe their likes would be greatly reduced.

Just about everyone who's not a big craft-beer drinker sees nearly ANY of my beers, which aren't crystal clear in clarity, and says (often even after tasting), "reminds me of a boulevard [wheat] or a blue moon." I had a beer that was supposed to be a Kolsch but I accidentally pitched chico...almost no hop character, just 2-row and a pinch of crystal, clean, I thought it was like just a touch above a BMC...our friends came over and were raving about it (also saying it reminded them of Boulevard).

I've served my Nugget Empire IIPA to two different people who "don't like hoppy beers"..."but I like that!"

I love seeing people act like they're "cultured" because they drink Blue Moon, too. Kudos for not drinking BMC, if you place worth on what beer you drink, but that is not a fine, hand-crafted beer you're drinking...and it's not foreign in any way.

The Guiness thing is funny, too. I used to not even be able to finish a Guiness when I first turned 21. After some practice, I could drink several in a sitting (usually because the female friends I was with couldn't finish theirs and wanted to go to another bar on the "crawl".) It's night-and-day from a BMC, but please go try some more stouts before you act like it's mud...

And, full disclosure, I drank Killians as my first venture out of the BMC world, at the ripe age of 21. At least that began my experimenting with different beers than Busch Light, which I grew-up on.

I think somewhere in my mid-to-late twenties I started buying random stuff that looked good at the liquor store, the $8 sixers. That taught me a lot about what I liked and didn't.

I was at a local brewery last having a pint of Tart Lychee by New Belgium, very tasty . A guy sitting next to me at the bar began talking with me about some of the beers they had on tap, specifically the one I had in my hand. After trying a sample he turned to his friends and told them to give it a try too, all of them were enjoying a nice frosty pint of Bud Light. Needless to say none of them enjoyed it, it was WAY too hoppy (20 IBUs) and tasted like "your buddies messed with you beer while you were in the bathroom". They told me it was too 'girly' for them, poked some fun at me, and promptly ordered another round of Bud Light. I bite my tongue and had a good laugh between myself and the bartender.
