me: I'll have a Bare Knuckle
bartender: That's like Guinness, right?
me: Yeah.
bartender: What's the difference between that and Guinness?
me: I'm not sure I'd be able to describe it that well. They're pretty similar.
bartender: I don't like Guinness.
me: Then you probably wouldn't like Bare Knuckle.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I just thought it was backwards and amusing.

Edit: And they had Stella on tap which I thought was pretty cool. Later I ordered one and it came in a plastic cup

I've never heard of Bare-Knuckle. At least she had an idea it was similar to Guiness (if it is) despite not liking the style. Heck, that's 100% more effort than you'll get anywhere around here.

On the other hand, now she knows Bare Knuckle is something like Guinness (at least in the OPHO), rather than assuming it was the same because they are both stouts.

I don't think she knows the word stout.

Holy cow I'm from Duquoin and went to SIU. Nothing more to add except that I'm shocked by the novelty of someone from Carbondale. Oh, and I've never heard of Bare Knuckle either, but I'm on a stout kick right now so I'll have to seek it out.

This was at Pinch Penny, which has a limited but impressive selection of good beers in their store

Bare Knuckle is AB/Inbev and so is Stella for that matter.

You Saluki's should check out Shawn Connelly's blog.

He's located out of S. IL and he does a tasting or something at Kindling Spirits on Mondays maybe?
