Default Sam Adams..... Ales?

Saw this and it made me chuckle. Figured I would share it with the masses:

Some states have laws that alcohol needs to be called certain things based on ABV. You might be in a state where everything less than 6% is an ale.

Then shouldn't they have new packaging that doesn't say "Lager"?

That's pretty funny actually. Like the time that someone tried to explain to me that there are two types of beer, ales & stouts...

brilliant.

just like when people say a beer has a "stout" flavor. really, it does?

interesting, considering that's a dunkel weiss you're drinking.

I have to thank you for posting that pic. I've been sitting at my desk, feeling a little thirsty but not knowing what to pick up at the store.... it's 59° and sunny outside, so I'm thinking a couple Noble Pils would go back REAL nice right about now....

yes, I had a friend describe the full sail black lager as "it tastes like a porter", me "your just saying that because it's dark" him, "yeah, your right"

I know in TX to call it a lager it has to be less then 5% I belive. That is why Shiner Frost is called an Ale even though it is a lager.

That's pretty standard in Reno. For the first few months it was available it was $11.99 everywhere.

And to answer above questions, no. Nevada is far too easy going in alcohol law. There are no rules of ABV % to be a lager/ale.
