Went to ruby Tuesday's to eat last night because I had a Christmas gift card. I knew the tap selection was going to be limited but I asked anyway.

What do you guys have on draft?
Server: BMC, Sam A, Blue moon, blue moon seasonal, and I suggest the Sam Adams seasonal. Their winter lager, is a delicious winter ale.
Me: (shakes head)
SWMBO: (trying to prevent me from educating him about something he probably doesn't care about anyway) "Just order it."
Me: yes give me the winter lager ale :-)
(Swmbo shoots me a dirty look)

At least swmbo knew, and could tell me why he was wrong, when he walked away. Teaching her well, even though she is a wine and not beer drinker. I was so proud :-)

You got to like any guy who is ordering six packs on the golf course and flirting with the beer-cart girl.

Not necessarily funny, actually more frustrating, but my FIL swears all beer tastes the same. This is the same FIL who finished of a third of a bottle of Chimay Blue and said it was "Ok. Cold, wet, beer." I love the guy, but honestly!

I hate a frustrating experience at BW3's last week. I know the bar has local craft beers and I know they rotate them fairly regularly, however they never put a list out in the dining room.

So I ask the waitress what beers they have on tap and she swears there is nothing that is not on the back of the menu. Of course those are your usual nation wide brand commercial beers. So, rather than argue, I tell her I'll need a minute, get up, walk into the bar and ask the bartender. I come back to the table and she returns and I say "Do you guys have3 Flyod's Zombie Dust?" She replies "Of course we do, we carry gumballhead, zombie dust, and dreadnaught..."

WTF.

I always walk up to the bar and read the tap handles at BW3's. It just saves the waitress from stumbling through trying to figure out whats on tap.

Oh bartenders... sigh
At least she was really cute

Small selection on tap, but decent. BMC, guiness, sam adams, and BMC "crafts": blue moon, goose island. I had a goose island christmas ale. Not the best, drinkable for sure, but I see they have some bottles in the fridge that look like sierra nevada...

Me "what do you have in bottles there?" (pointing towards the SN)

her, not even looking "bud bud light bud light platinum coors light miller light blue moon blue moon seasonal, uhmm..."

me, interupting the run-on BMC list "is that sierra nevada I see there?" (pointing)

her "oh yeah, um, i think its like a pale ale. kinda hoppy, i never had it though" (no reference to the red bottle that I am assuming is celebration ale)

me, allowing her he ignorance since she is cute as hell, "I'll take the SN"

her, handing me the bottle, "oh wait its an... um (reading) extra IPA, is that still ok?"

torpedo, yes please. I gave her her tip and just turned around. It amazed me how ignorant a server could be. If she was the greezy looking dude serving down the other way, he would have caught a little more hell. But she smiled purdy.
