Default I am already a beer snob! how?

Until tonight I thought my home brew was just ok. That all changed tonight when someone at a party offered me a coors lite. YUCK It tasted like an ashtray. I find this so strange. coors was never my fave BUT I would not have said yuck in the past. I just cant get over HOW much home brewing has changed my taste buds!

LMAO!

You will still be able to appreciate good beer, it's not that you are a homebrewer it's that you were drinking Coors.

My wife (who does not brew) has now made the seventh level of beer snobbery. Asked me to pick up some more of that Stone Ruination last weekend. Ha I didnt tell her it was $18 a sixer.

I changed all my ways the first time I smelled hops in a boil. Never look back.

I think I was born a beer snob. I had a taste of Keystone when I was 5, didn't like it. A taste of Red Stripe when I was 10, not great but definitely better than the Keystone. Guinness and Sam Adams Boston Lager showed me that beer had flavor... good flavor, and it snowballed from there.

Welcome to the addiction.

I don't think you're a beer snob, I think you are open minded enough to try ester laden ales. So many people I know are huge fans of clean easy drinking lagers. Coors and Bud are doing something right or they wouldn't have 99% of the world beer business. I have a couple friends that won't even try a beer unless it says "Bud Light". It makes me want to can 4 cases of my IPA in Bud Light cans. Anyway, when I have a Coors Light I try to compare it to other commercial styles of light lagers. Trying to compare Coors Light to Stone Ruination is like comparing pizza to lobster thermidor. Both are delicious but I'm going for lobster every time.

The standard American beer (Bud-Mil-Oors) is a really difficult beer to make. Personally I think these brewers are probably the best in the world at their craft. There is no-way I would ever try and replicate their beer. I prefer highly hopped American Pale Ales, or Belgian Ales, but an ice cold beer on a hot day .... you can't beat an American standard.

Most of us prefer more taste in our beers, but we need to acknowledge that Bud, Miller and Coors do make a quality product that appeals to a large majority of the American (and International) public.

I will never acknowledge bud as anything above awful.

Never had a problem with that myself. I enjoy a good beer and tend toward the snobbery end of the scale when picking out beer for myself but I also enjoy a silver bullet or bud light when hanging out with friends. The more people I convert to good beer though the fewer times the "silver bullet or bud light when hanging out with friends" thing happens, lol.
