At work today I was talking to buddy about chocolate stout and this one kid said "Choclate in a beer, that disgusting." I know this kid is a BMC drinking but I tried to explain to anyway. I don't think it worked.

no matter how you explain it, their mental picture is Hershey's syrup in a mug/bottle of their favorite BMC Light. I've tried & tried to no avail.

That pretty much sums it up. However, with the right style a good bit of cocoa is amazing with some chocolate malt.

So I asked, "Which is it, the pale ale or the IPA?" She says, "They're the same." SWMBO gave me that look she gives me when she knows I want to explain the finer points that differentiate a pale ale from an IPA, or anything about beer when a server says something inaccurate about beer. So I just said, "OK, I'll have that." I need to go out with my beer friends more often so I won't be shunned for being a beer geek and wigging out on a server who doesn't know **** about the product they're peddling.
Meh... this is actually understandable if you ask me. If the menu has nothing worth ordering besides Sierra Nevada, I always assume it's the pale ale. Further, the pale ale and torpedo are both green labeled hoppy beers. Hard to differentiate if you aren't a beer nerd. Plus, if you said both names, they both have "pale ale" in them.

Even I've been known to grab one when I was looking for the other in the store.

And where have you ever seen Torpedo on tap that wasn't a beer bar. SNPA is a pretty standard offering in a sea of BMC taps (along with whatever Sam's Seasonal is in season)

The logical assumption would be that it is the Pale Ale.

My first time into an area taphouse with 70+craft beers beers on tap, we sit down, and the server takes our orders. I asked what he had in the way of Imperial IPA's. Puzzled, he said "hold on let me go check".
He comes back and says "sorry, we don't have anything like that." At this point I say, "sorry, I probably should have said Double IPA". Again he says "no, nothing like that".

"Alright then", I said, "what DO you have for IPA's?" First thing out of his mouth, "Firestone Walker Double Jack..."

DOH!

He did totally redeem himself though. My wife wanted a black and tan. He suggested a Youngs Double Chocolate stout with a Seadog BluePaw Blueberry Wheat. The Seadog on it's own is nothing special IMO, but paired in this way was fantastic.

Nowhere, and that's why I got all excited. I did assume it was the pale ale, but I hate making assumptions, regardless of how likely it is they're correct.

I typically choose my restaurants for the beer and not the food, but on the off chance that I do the opposite, I keep my expectations incredibly low. I wouldn't expect a steakhouse to care about beer as long as they have BMC, and wouldn't expect the servers to know anything about it.

A guy at work asks what I am doing over the weekend. "Not much." I say, "Might brew some beer." "Wow!" Says the guy, "You ever get caught?"
