Last night:

Me: "What's this Estrella Damm? Is that a lager?"
Waiter: "No, it's more like a Michelob."
Me: (holding my tongue) "Sure, why not."

So I get the beer, and he comes back after checking with the bar and says, "Yeah it's Portuguese Bud Light."

And you know what? That's exactly what it tasted like.

Not so much a funny statement. I've been feeding one of my coworkers a steady selection of bottled homebrew that I've been holding on to. The other day I saw a 24 pack of "Big Flats" from Walgreens that he bought for like $8. I mentioned it, he'd never tried it and asked how it was. I said basically that it's beer, and compared it to PBR lite.

I followed up with it this morning and asked how it was. I can't accurately recreate the passion in which he stated how bad it was. He said that after drinking everything that I've been giving him it made it especially bad.

I live in Elmira, NY (right next to the town of Big Flats NY) and see this stuff all the time for $3 a six-pack. No desire to try it, at all.
*Edit* just researched this and realized it has nothing to do with the neighboring town. I feel stupid now :P

Another facepalm beer vs ale. This was at lunch today. I think they just went by if it had "ale" in the name, it was an ale, if not, it is a beer

+1

Also, Hefeweizen uses top-cropping yeast, so I guess it should be in the ale category.

Had an extended debate with a friend last night who was telling me all Belgian beers are lagers. ALL OF THEM!!

At one point, when I was showing him the BJCP guidelines for dubbels, trippels etc. I just had to say "you realise you're arguing about beer styles with the kind of person who has the style guidelines on their phone". I don't claim to be an expert or anything, but I know my ale from my lagers

Then we looked up one he likes, Kwak. First line, "Kwak is an amber ale...".

Classic saying that ticks me off. I have to keep reminding the girl I work with but she is a snobby biotch and won't correct herself and still spreads misinformation to our learning customers.

One that I get all the time is when people first find out I'm making beer, they tell me to be careful not to poisen myself or blow up my kitchen... I would really like to know how the dangers of Meth labs has become associated with homebrewing???
