"No, Derek. It's hoppy. I don't like malty beer."

And like that, the conversation was over. I wonder if there's any hope.
This reminds me of the those old Miller Light commercials. Less Filling / Tastes Great!

I live for the day when there is a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot commercial with the same argument.

Its Malty! / No its Hoppy!

I wish I would have found this thread earlier. There are so many things I missed the chance to comment on. Lets see here. back to the beginning. All in good fun of course. Heck of a disclaimer eh

Yes, do not come in looking for sympathy because doesn't identify the flavor profile of her Barley Wine accurately enough. Most of us are lucky to have our parents taste our brews.

All in favor of dragging this thread right back off topic and talking about my marriage/Revvy dating my mom, now...
Wishing we would get back to discussing perverted men of the cloth getting with your mom speaks of a very troubling childhood and could explain some those rough times in childhood that helped develop your defense mechanisms.

you can't appeal the revoking of a man card while saying "SO" about everything. This is how my 12 year old sister speaks. OMG he's SOO cute!"

Why is the guy who accidently turns Pale Ales into Barley Wines challenging anyone to a brew contest? Not to mention our ManCards are not in question here.

Chicks dig dude's with glasses is something you're mother invented the day you had to get glasses so you wouldn't feel so bad about being made fun of the next day in elementry school. Hot Chicks in adult life dig guys with glasses that also HAPPEN to have jobs that offer $20K raises

That is the special love that only this forum can offer. It's like my group of friends. If we're not bashing you constantly and slamming you everytime you mess up at something, you're not really part of the group.

Dudes with glasses tend to become those guys with jobs that offer $20K raises. Mostly because we're intelligent (YES, I know myopia and intelligence aren't actually related) and sucked at physical stuff and had to pick something else to excel at. It has been my observation that as I grow older, my access to attractive women has increased substantially.

Exactly. The attractive women have had their fun and need a stable life now. That is not a bad thing. You get the good looking respective ones without the drama of highschool.
I know my comments may have been harsh, but they're all to be taken as jokes in good humor. Except about the ALL of us meeting your wife. Maybe a little too much.
