I cringe evrytime but never say anything. Nice cold bomber and the lady always lays it down to put it in a paper bag. However not as bad as rolling it down the conveyor.

Slightly off topic but a favorite belgian bar by me drives me nuts doing stuff like this. I order a nice bottlemof something and they always pour part of the bottle in the glass for you and set it back down. Looks fancy i suppose but thanks, i wanted to drink yeast in my second pour.

Yea been there got the t-shirt...a store near me has prices or scans the bottom of the sixer...I cringe when I see a nice bottle conditioned brew flippped sideways or upside down to be rung up....or my girlfriend breaks a sixer and puts all the bottles in the fridge laying down cause fridge space was at a premium...I get over it...

Now the apples at the market...not a concern at all.

So you can't stand to get drunk on three bombers of "mishandled" beers the same day you bought them? Suck it up and wait. There's going to be another Saturday night coming around in a whole week.
^this, a thousand times this.

I don't know what kind of vehicle you guys all drive, or your driving methods, but I've gotten bottles of beer from people who have traveled considerable distance and they yeast at the bottom has not been stirred up much if at all.

I've taken beer on trips to a friend's house that lives 2.5 hours away on MICHIGAN ROADS and they haven't been stirred up.

And I would have no problem asking a checkout person to please don't shake or tip my bottle upside down. If they do then politely decline that bottle and get a new one.

You wouldn't ask the person at the pet store to kick a puppy, would you? Then why allow them to treat some even more precious that way?

it doesn't really matter, because they won't do it anyway- no matter how politely you phrase the request

I think the OP is overreacting a little bit (and the second post is one of the funniest things I've read in a while), but the OP did mention that this was a bottle shop. You'd think that someone who works there would receive at least a little training about how to properly handle the spendy beers. I wouldn't expect the 16 year old at the Piggly Wiggly to know how to handle a bottle-conditioned Belgian, but a bottle shop employee ought to know. I know the *fancy* place that I go to, they're uber-careful about how they handle the merchandise.

No doubt. Even the stoners at the local shop know how to handle a bottle of expensive craft beer.
