I would say to them in retort, "You mean, 'I like MOST ales and lagers,' right?"

And then watch the confusion set in on their face.

There is a brewpub close to where I live. it used to have really good beer but has gone downhill lately, they are just more interested in making money than having good food or beer anymore but that is a whole story in itself. Anyways I try to stop by there every once in a while if I am in town. My wife and I sat down to have dinner and the waitress comes over and gives us a beer menu then tells of the couple of special brews that aren't on the menu. One was called black horse pale ale. I asked what it was and she tried to explain it as a light beer that is really dark with a lot of hops in it. I asked her if it was a black IPA ,she said yeah thats it. The next table she went to she described it as a black IPA. I understand not every waiter/waitress knows beer but if you work in a brewpub you should at least have some knowledge of whats on tap.

Haha, yeah. It's as true today as when I first said it. Only now I actually know what I mean when I say it.

I was at a Beirstube resturant,which had a decent selection of beer.Some local tap beer also as well as decent commercial craft. Overhearing some milfs,talk about ipa's. Saying, " Im going to go home and drink some ipa's".Just like they are a big trend or a new thing.I just shuddard at the fashion statement. but whatever I like ipa's fashionable or not. I actually enjoyed a phemnominal locally brewed stout brewed with coffee. I swear the aroma was better than any fresh roasted coffee I ever smelled brewed and was a good stout maybe greatest fresh coffee stout ever(think fresh dankish coffee/espresso resin aroma) it may be the coffee aroma- ipa of a stout. It literally smelled like fresh roasted coffee in my pint glass. Maybe I should have blurted with exubaration how I wanted to go home and drink the **** out of good coffee stouts? All night long til the breaka breaka dawn?

No, it was actually Bent River Uncommon stout, I must have got it super fresh or something but it was incredible. I do like great river beers Hoppopotumus was pretty nice as well. But their pumpkin sucked on tap last year.I doubt they can one if they do shure hope it wasnt like last years.
