She explained that we have some fine German beers that exemplify the style he's used to, but he would have none of it. Flustered, she came to me with the story and told me she didn't want to take the awful offering to him. Then she told me what he said. "If the Germans are so good at making beer, how come they lost two World Wars?"

Come on. So I offer to take the whole table's beers to them. The gentleman's father ordered a liter of Oktoberfest from Spaten.

"Here we go, I have a fine German beer for you sir, a nice Riesling for you Ma'am and a beer flavored putrid malt beverage for you."

"Excuse me, this is REAL BEER."

"No, your father ordered a real beer, you ordered a pansy malt beverage only fit for cooking hot dogs in."

"Then why does it say BEER on the label?"

"Because it's legal to lie in the states. In Europe and the rest of the world they aren't allowed to call it BEER, they have to call it malt beverage like Zima and most wine coolers. So you're basically drinking a wine cooler. Enjoy your Zima, and you sir (pointing to his father), enjoy that BEER."

The whole table laughed at him. The server asked me if that was true about Europe.

"I don't think so, but it's true to him right now."

Took few of my homebrews to a buddies house to watch a football game, offered one to his friend (who had a deathgrip on his Miller Lite) I got the response "No thanks you never know if that stuffs not made right it can make you blind" I gotta say I was a little offended but oh well more delicious pumpkin ale for me...enjoy your rice and corn water

at one of my favorite craft beer bars i ordered a sierra nevada northern hemisphere wet-hopped ale. i commented that it was delicious. the barmaid then tells me (in a bit of a snooty way):

"yeah, it's one of my favorites. i love those wet-hopped beers as opposed to the dry-hopped ones."

i didn't have the heart to tell her that wet hopping refers to ingredients and dry hopping refers to process. i did have a hearty silent chuckle, however.

probably would have blown her mind to tell her the wet hop ale was probably dry hopped...

"I wish they would stop making beers with hops again."

"Do you triple brew your beer like Coors?"

"Why do you need a glass for your beer?"

Except if you're talking about ingredients, you could refer to hops that have been dried as dry hops (although she probably didn't know this). Similar to how 'light' means two different things depending on if you're talking about color or weight. Dry stout is a dark, light beer.
