Default Pouring like a Noobie?....Riiiiiiight.

So I had a few buddies over the other day to try out a new IPA. Along with them was a straggler friend of theirs, let's call him Bill. I start pouring everyone my IPA in Draft Glasses with a nice thick foam top. While me and my buddies eyeball the nice carbos, Bill yells out with an excruciating screech "You pour like noobie!!!" and laughs. Not only did I grab my beer out of his hand but I kicked him out. My friend went on to tell me he's a "Budwiser." I sympathized and let him back in w/o a beer. Some folks just aren't worthy. Anyone else experience the pain of the Flat Glass specialist?

Sorry bro. Sounds like you were the bigger douche this time.

Better to teach than to redicule, as I eat my own words.

"Pour a man a beer and he'll drink for an hour. Teach a man to pour and he'll drink for a lifetime."

Everyone drinks beer for their own reasons, whether it's for the taste or just to get a quick buzz. When I have friends over, some get the homebrew, some get whatever was cheap at the corner store. The urge to turn snobbish on people is high, but there are always those things that some people just can't appriciate properly. Some people get crazy over wine, and I've just never been a huge fan.

But nobody calls me a noob in my house and gets away with it! I would have at least confiscated the beer and made him sit through a long, boring lecture about proper pouring techniques.

Teach what? Manners? That's for parents to teach. Eat your words. I didn't have to as my buddies were quick to inform the boy.

I think he just meant that it may have been more productive (and more conducive to friendship, you did refer to the guy as your buddy) to explain why you pour the way you do, and the benefits involved. Not everyone gets the exposure to quality beer that we have, just think back to the last time someone asked you if your homebrew could make them blind, or if you brewed it in a bathtub.

And besides, I am the biggest douche in this thread. Stand in awe of my douchebaggery!

I agree he has bad manners, but I also agree that was an opportunity to educate, not ridicule and be big a douche as him.

Point is, regardless of beer quality, many percieve foam as volume loss and a bad pour.

Our personal sonobbery is of appreciating the aromatic qualities and admiring the legs on a layer of foam. Not every one who appreciates beer gives a sh!t about it. But, to deny, someone beer because they don't want the foam is douchebaggery. The Noob insult is forgiveable given that the "boy" was unawares of the reasoning.

Better beer is promoted through advocacy. Snobbery only serve the BMC engine.

However, if he were to nooberate you again, cock punch him.

You all are spot on. It really was in the way he laughed afterwards. A screech so bad I would have felt better with a Louisville Slugger to the cranium.
