I need to join a home brew club! I made a batch of ed haus ale and I have been giving it out as gifts for Christmas. Its great beer! there is nothing wrong with it! I dare say its the best I have yet to make. Here is the response I have gotten from people I have given it to.

Brother (loves coors light): "Jesus Christ why is this so bitter? What do you mean coors light sucks they brew it in the rockys!"

Coworker: "There was gummy stuff in the bottom of the bottle I poured it out."

Other co worker: "I'm allergic to moonshine"

Has any one else ever had problems with people not understanding good quality beer?

Oh yeah, I brought some into work and one of the guys said very emphatically after smelling the top of his freshly poured glass: "This smells like beer!!!"

I was like, no ****, it IS beer!

Hold on a sec, there's a thread specifically for this type of thing, let me find it...

Hahaha my brother says the same thing about Coors Light. I've tried educating him but he thinks that stouts taste "like they were filtered through a steak."

But it's cool, I just don't give him any good beer. No accounting for taste, and all that.

Taste is the enemy of America. This is why we have MuckDonalds, Arby's Wendys......The list goes on. However, you will always find a ton of people that swear that those places are the best place to eat, in the world, EVER!

That mentality is the same with beer.

I had my cousin tell me once about miller lite "I can almost promise you our for fathers drank something like miller lite, is just so American!"

When I was young and dumb I use to think beer was something I would come to enjoy one day, just like everyone else.

Then I put down the bud light and picked up a fat tire.
