Just last weekened I offered my sister a wheat homebrew, she turned it down as she doesn't like 'dark beers'. Apparently anything not miller light is a dark beer.

I got her to taste it, she made a awful face and said it was too herby. She ment hop flavor (it was a gumballhead clone that is spot on with gumballhead).

I made a Belgian White a while ago and gave some away. My friend asks what it is and says how much she loves Blue moon. I pour her a glass and she goes "God! That's awful cloudy"...... -_- ugh

Another funny thing. My first year in college I would buy a 30 of keystone every weekend. The next year I "bought the good stuff".......budlight. The year after that I upgraded to Becks and Blue Moon. Sometimes I look back and I'm disappointed in myself.

My mother-in-law, who drinks Coors Light on special occasions and Keystone Light normally, complained that I don't drink American beers (because I drink craft beers). I tried explaining that her beers are the foreign beers...

My dad was surprised I drank so many different beers and said that my "beer expert" aunt, who is considered an expert in the family because she drinks Milwaukee's Best (or whatever is on sale) on hot days, told him that all beers taste the same.

Someone told me the other day that they encourage people to not drink beer and to diversify their palate by drinking other things like wine and liquor...

So I was at my local woodmans several weeks back, this guy fishing out 50 cent heini's from the clearance cart. A lady ask him what this brand of beer (forgot but it was a IPA) was. "whats a IPA?" the guy awnsers her and says oh thats a brewery that makes bitter beer. I said what it was aloud to them but they did't hear me. I lowered my head and when't on beer shopping.

Yeah, Uncommon is better. Just had the jingle java, and I couldn't get over the flavored coffee. I was wondering if you were from the QC.
