Directed to me: You like all them dark beers, don't you? Like Guinness? I nod and smirk. Bystander: I was in england for a while, everything they drink there is dark!
2nd bystander: They drink it warm too, don't they?
Bystander: Yeah, completely. It's disgusting.

This info came from the same person that interjected when I was asked what an IPA was with "Beers like Budweiser, Labbats.." I finally had to said NO!

Some people should stick to sucking down juiceboxes.

Some retard didn't know what an IPA was, so I messed with him by listing BMC beers when he asked.

our power went off in the shop for an hour yesterday. me and a few of the guys were standing around BS-ing. one guy said he drank a 12 pk of Redds on Saturday, then bragged it's 5%. I gave him a sideways look. another guy nick named Martini (and for good reason) said that doesn't sound like much. the other guy instantly stated that beer made in America is only 4.5-5%. I gave him another sideways look. he instantly clarified "the big breweries".

My next door neighbor, who is an awesome guy, had said something funny to me but I didn't feel necessary to correct his statement. I gave him an oatmeal stout in a 22 oz bomber. He looks at it, holds it up to the sunlight and proclaims, "You know it's a good beer when you can't see through the bottle," Although it was a very delicious beer, I couldn't help but smile when I heard him say that. Cheers.

Went to a local place that only serves local NJ craft brews last weekend. Ordered River Horse's seasonal (Hipp-o-lantern), and the waitress asked if I would like it with a cinnamon sugar rim.

At least she asked first...

When people ask what kind of beer I like, I just tell 'em I like "beer I can eat with a fork".
