Default Is your beer more like Bud Light or Miller Lite?

We had some workers in our house tonight cleaning up some water damage (don't ask) who saw my kegerator. When told that I brew my own beer, this was their question. My wife tried to explain that I brewed ales with somewhat more flavor than BMC, but without much success.

I try not to be too much of a beer snob - I mean Miller Lite is fine if that's what you want. I'll pass, thanks. But it does seem like if you drink beer, you should at least be aware that other types exist.

Anyway, I got a chuckle.

Heh... Neither. Mine does not give me a headache (bud*), and it has flavor (unlike miller lite). I just had my windows replaced. The crew did not like my homebrew. Maybe pale Ale was the wrong thing to offer?

It's nuts how little people know about beer. I've run into it on more than one occasion. I once tried to explain to someone, who has probably spent half their life in a bar, that beer contains hops. You'd think they'd at least read the occasional label.

I think I always knew there were hops in beer - but I had no idea what they did. My first hoppy beer was a Goose Island IPA - I liked it a lot, but even then I had to be told. It wasn't until I stuck my nose in a bag of hops that I really understood.

Maybe if we all carried a bag around with us, offering sniffs to people on the street ... nah, we'd probably get busted.

Thats hilarious. Don't tell anyone this, but back when I used to manage a pub, I frequently tapped Miller Light kegs under the Bud Light banner and vice versa. Some nights I would have aggressive drinkers of ML (or BL) that would run the kegs out and I just kept the beer flowing; only I knew it was really BL (or ML). I did this for years and nobody complained once even though I saw people having arguments about how each beer had distinct taste differences....

HAHA that is absolutely awesome. I hate it how BMC drinkers are so defensive and passionate about THEIR beer, but at the same time can't identify THEIR beer in a blind taste test.

Oh yeah, people would come in demanding only BL and refusing to drink ML. I had the last laugh on that one plenty of times...
