Similar thing happened to me while in Peru a few months ago. I ordered a Greene King IPA and the bartender gave me a puzzled look, thought for a second, and then said "Oh, you mean an "eepah"?"

Shrugged my shoulders and said, "Yeah, give me one of those eepahs I've heard so much about."

Then came Corona, Dos Equis, Killinans red, and Sam Adams.

She said domestics were $3.00 and that imports where $4.00.

I said I'll take a Sam Adams.

The bill came and it was $4.00 a beer. I said what gives? I ordered Sam Adams. She said that was an Import.

I said Sam Adams is made in Boston. She just looked puzzled, and said it was still an import.

It pains me to have Killians and Blue Moon get the import tag. Becks is made in St Louis, but good luck getting it for "domestic" pricing.

my neighbor drinks shiner beer. shiner beer is made in shiner, tx. here in texas, he has to pay import prices for a "beer" made in the same state. to keep on thread, his wife tells me she thinks my beer "tastes too much like beer", and doesn't drink it, even though she drinks a fair amount of keester... i mean keystone light

I walked into a small convenience store on my way home from work. I looked at everything in their selection and decided to pick up two bombers. One from Stone and one from Rogue. The girl at the register wanted to make small talk...

Her: Hey.. my boyfriend loves Rogue! He loves microbrews!
Me: Yeah... Rogue's great, along with Stone.
Her: There's actually a German beer here that he really liked.
Me: WHAT!? Where?! I looked at EVERYTHING here.
Her: I'll show you...

She led me right to Rogue's Irish Lager. I smiled, said no thanks, paid for my two bombers, and got out of there

I brought a couple growlers of my Black IPA (CDA) over to my buddy's house for a Christmas party.

Everybody loved it, then my buddy's dumbass older brother chimed in and said; "wow this is too bitter for a porter. I think you got to many air bubbles in your hops and ruined them during the boil." I looked at him and said please elaborate, so I don't make that mistake again. He said, "every brewer knows you gotta keep air bubbles out of your hops while they're boiling." I said "holy crap I did not know that, and to think I've been brewing for 15 years now and nobody has ever bothered to tell me this!" I thanked him for the info and asked him how long he's been brewing. He said, "well I haven't brewed yet but me and a buddy were thinking about getting into it."

Needless to say everybody thought he was a jackass.

Every good brewer knows you need to keep a hop de-aeration stone in the boil. Geez!

My wife and I went into a bar and ordered a meal and two beers. I find around here the only thing I'm likely to enjoy on tap in most places is Guinness so I ordered one. My wife ordered a Budweiser as usual. When they brought the beers my wife's Bud was very cloudy and when she tasted it she told me it didn't taste right. I tasted it and it was a hefeweizen. It was a heck of a lot better than Bud, but she wanted her choice. I called the bartender over and told him he poured the wrong beer for my wife. He said he didn't and that he had pulled it from the correct tap. I told him then he must have his lines crossed or something because the glass did not have Bud. He walked over to the taps grabbed the one obviously marked with a hefeweizen pulled a small sample and tasted. He looked at me and said, "No sir, it's Budweiser." I looked at him like I had just discovered the missing link.

Lol just imagine what happens when he goes to other bars and fancies one of those nice "buds". He'll be sending them back complaining that it's too damned clear and has no flavour. Lol
