peel the label off some micro brew, invite him over and hand it to him to see if he can taste the priming sugar. Tell him it's your new brew.

Present two identical bottles to him. Tell him that one was "grŁngeschlaucht" (you bottled at the time when the beer was a few points from its terminal gravity) and that the other was primed with sugar.

Ask him if he can taste the difference. If he does, it is up to you whether you indulge your self to call him a charlatan to his face or just keep it too your self.

I think you've hit the nail on the head.

He does, and they aren't really that great.

I'm liking those ideas but don't know if I want to spend the effort....

What effort? You only have to open two bottles of the same brew (perhaps mark the cap of the other with a magic marker for effect), tell a small story and your trap is set...

I'd have to strip off the label off a beer because when I bring over my beers he looks at them when he puts them in the fridge.

I agree with the commercial substitution...love to see what kooky criticisms he comes up with.
