Hehe, that reminds me when I used to work at Rogue's Eugene location. We'd almost always have a "secret" beer on tap. Usually, this was an experimental or "one-batch" offering that our pub would only get a keg or two of like Dead guy aged in Dead Guy Whiskey barrels or a keg of 3 year aged Old Crustacean.
Usually, these beers would blow in a day or two (often before I got to have a pint), so we just told regulars and obvious beer geeks, who would likely appreciate them. I would never not sell someone a pint of these beers, or deny we had them if asked.
Moral of the story: be nice to your bartender/server and ask lots of questions.
