Overheard this gem of information, "The difference between an IPA and a red is that the hops are cooked longer in the red than they are in the IPA" ..............

"Bock beer is the darker beer that they take from the bottom of the barrel"

Spoken by CGVT sometime around 1980...

Just yesterday one of my relatives said his favorite types of beer are stouts and ales. :facepalm:

Yo Mark, stouts are ales.

My thing is people who act like they're above BMC drinkers because they drink Blue Moon...who think that it's vastly superior in quality to BMC, etc. They're the ones being snobs, I'm merely pointing out they're really not drinking that great of beer.

I have to admit I didn't really know the difference at one point. Even if I knew Lagers and Ales, I couldn't tell you which a beer was unless it was printed on it. Once Budweiser started saying "The Great American Lager" I knew that all crappy light beers were "lagers" and I knew Bass was an ale, Harp was a lager, etc. because they printed it on the label!

I don't fault people for that because I figured you'd have to be obsessed with beer to know those things back then. It is funny to hear people act like they know the difference, though.

I was getting a tour at a brewery by their newest brewer. He later admitted he'd never homebrewed, and was still learning but these was the answer to one question:

The difference between dry hopping and wet hopping is that wet hopping is with pellets and dry hopping is with whole hops.

He later told me that his first beer he made the recipe for himself was about to come on tap and he really likes super bitter beers so he dry hopped the **** out of it at the end...

That one is actually fairly common. My grandpa-in-law always tells me that the breweries "scrape the bottom of the barrels" and make their bocks with that stuff. Although he says that's why bocks are seasonal, because the brewery only does this at the end of the year.

I don't know. I want to tell him the truth, but he's such a nice old man, I can't bring myself to correct him.

I had a similar experience on a brewery tour, although it was not a brewer giving the tour.

The tour leader kept repeating that dry hopping made beer more bitter, I kept repeating that it didn't, and nobody else on the tour really gave a damn.

Yeah I was just buzzed enough to want to correct him and give people other answers and my wife just kept telling me to settle and have another beer
