brew master over Crow Peak watched my friends wife pouring Clamato into their IPA in their tap room. he said, "What is she doing to my beer?!?"
my friend replied, "She puts it in every beer. You can't stop her. No one can." I just wish I was there for when she tried the porter. hahaha!

I was just at a barbecue place in Kansas City and my dad asked the waiter where Leinenkugel was from. I responded before the waiter saying Wisconsin, and the waiter's response was, "Oh, I thought it was from some place in Northern Europe!."

My step dad is the proverbial "master of everything" [in his mind]. Is always fun to mess with. He thinks that wikipedia or the interwebz always has the true awnser. A prime example is it took me 3 years to convince him that using mutiple devices on broadband was why he got a slow loading time. He thought broadband meant unlimted bandwith [he went to tech school for networking in the mid 90s, prolly a year before broadband became easily accesable]

I have given him a few beers to taste, and instead of sipping and analyzing, he just downs [chugs] them from the bottle, no smelling, or no decanting, and declares wether he approves of it or not. Then again he cant taste a difference between skips, resses, or store brand peanut butter.

Funniest things I have heard have to be from a bartender buddy of mine. who asked if I liked butt light [got some cheap cheap from work]. I told him hated it. He accusingly said you like those ipas then huh, I said no. He said well then what do you drink, I had to inform him of what a barley wine, bock, heffe, saison, and basically all the good stuff was. I recently caught him trying to school some guys on beer [bmc drinkers], that called corona a mexican ale... I'm so proud of him.

Funniest thing I hear alomost daily are the declerations of bud light or any bmc brand being a "great beer", with a great flavor. They have there place, as a lawnmower beer maybe, but most certainly arent great.

Budwiser is too strong, I drink bud light [hear that alot actually]

I dont drink that budwiser crap, I only like corona and tecate [facepalm, nice job being exotic]

Man I'm so glad I stepped up from natty/busch, this is strong/ better tasting [usually a guy holding a bmc or one of the aforementioned mexican beers]

I must admit, I laughed. But hey, we all start somewhere. I drank ridiculous amounts of miller high life before I became a hop head homebrewer.
I instantly thought of Mike from Breaking Bad when I read this. "No Walter, you can't".

My neighbor "figured out" I was a brewer and told me not to complain to him when the police show up.

Really? I guess it is the south and that's just what they're use to.

Haha, what a tool. Did you let him know that you "figured out" brewing was legal?

I've been asked many times if I made meth. when I reply "no", they always ask, "then what's that copper coil for!" hahaha!

Then you should ask them how they know meth uses a copper coil

My new next door neighbor finally approached me a couple of months ago and I told her not to worry that I was just brewing beer she told me she has a degree in csi and knew that I wasn't making meth. Not 2 mins later she made a joke about me being a drug pusher to her husband because I have a beard and I'm always "cooking" in the garage. Then she told me that she sometimes sells pain killers and to make it all crazy her husband is a major in the army. Weird people.

Awesome. They sound like people to have on your good side.
