a way walks into my local watering hole and ask for the strongest flavored beer, he's promptly offered a mikkeller's cognac aged black hole and he decides to drink it. Takes a couple of licks and says how awesome it is, reads the label, sees coffee on it and says how he can't drink beers that have coffee in them. WTH?! he just took a taste and said it was mighty fine.

another man once gloated to all his friends (most of them drinking german lagers) how Fosters was the best beer in the world and renowed as such and that it was exactly like a corona, only just better.

I thought I had a funny one, only to find out many of you have run into a similar situation.

We were drinking one of my RIS brews, and my Brother in Law says "You know the thing I like about your beer is that it tastes more like an ale than a beer."

I've tried to explain it to him before, but he always spouts beer related information as if he is the authority on beer, yet while we were enjoying many craft beers over the holiday he shows up with a 40 of Pabst...it's quite amussing.

"Ahhh....fragile....must be italian!"

I was out drinking the other day. We got to talking about beer and this guy offered up a nifty trick of his. If you rub your finger on your face and then stir your beer with the same finger, all that pesky foam dissapears.

And I spend all this time researching head retention.

I've scolded people for doing that.

Haha I used to do that, when I was 18 and drank bud light. Now that I think back on it, man that was sacrilegious.

You should've just told him a dirty glass will do the same thing. He's probably used top drinking out of freshly opened solo cups though.
