Default What did you just say??!!

Just thought I'd share a couple quotes I picked up over Memorial Day weekend.

QUOTE 1:
"I never was a big fan of Miller. I always thought it was too hoppy."

QUOTE 2:
Guy in bathroom: "You're drinking Yuengling? I thought you were a Bud guy?"
Friend: "I thought I was. I don't know, man. I like the lager better. I've converted."

I celebrated my 40th, this weekend. The older couple across the street came over with a card and bottle of beer. "...a 40oz. bottle of Bud for your 40th birthday! We know you love beer."


Really nice folks. Bless their hearts.

In this one, they could have been using "The Lager" as a proper noun, not an adjective. There are whole swaths of Pennsylvania where Yuengleng is just called "Lager."

In the first quote, cut the guy some slack. It *is* triple-hopped, it takes a special kind of beer drinker to be able to handle all of that.

Similarly, I saw this in Canada a few weeks ago and was headscratching for a bit...



Then I found out there is actually such a thing as a lagered ale...

I still don't get it though.

Sounds like they over pitch ale yeast and ferment at lager temps. That is the only logical explanation I can think of.

All is not lost, you could use the Bud to grill with. Next time you see them thank them for the marinade.

If they had brought two, you could have played "40 hands"!

This is actually a really good beer. Made by some pretty cool folks, too.

I just posted this in another thread and almost wanted to start a "dumbest comment you have heard this week" thread but this is just as good.

Everyone else: "yes"

Friend: "BS!! NO ONE likes the taste of beer, its just the best alcohol and the easiest to drink a lot of!"
