"Oh? What kind of beer do you brew?"

"Lots of different kinds. Ales mostly."

"Oh. I don't like ales."

"Oh? More of a lager man, huh?"

"No, I don't like lagers either. Just beer."

That was the actual conversation between me and one of my neighbors.

My mother-in-law actually asked me:

"So what's the difference between ale and beer?"

<face-palm>

When I told my dad I was going to start brewing my own beer he said, "Oh, it starts with beer, but soon you'll be making your own meth."

"the last one I had was crap" - I've heard that a few times. Of course they are pleasantly surprised when they try mine!
