Oh my.... homebrewed beer?

I don't know...

Is it safe?

I know you don't know me, but I'm kinda a germiphobe...

Will it make me sick? Oh.. I've never done this before, are you sure it's ok?






I swear this was a true conversation back in May.





Little did this lady know how much attention is paid to sanitation when making beer. BTW, she didn't get sick and she actually kinda liked my homebrew

I recently asked the barely legal waitress at a local watering hole what wheat beers they had on tap. She said she didn't really know but would ask the bartender. She returned about 5 minutes later with the reply that "all beers are wheat beers because that's the main ingredient".

It doesn't change the fact that they are easy drinking beers with some actual flavor- the fact that they're offered in so many bars and restaurants now does amazing things for "real" craft beer.

If you don't care for them, that's your opinion and prerogative, but that doesn't make them foul just because you say so, no matter how loudly or often.
Hell, I drank Blue Moon for a while as I was dipping my toes into craft beer, and it's what gave me the confidence to try imported belgians and other superficially similar beers like hefe's- cloudy beer is almost scary when all you've been exposed to is fizzy yellow water.

I'm by no means an expert, but I know a lot more now because I was introduced to the rest of the beer world.
I would NOT drink any beer I put my toes in. Just saying...

I would have walked out.

I've seen a few comments on Youtube videos that have made me lol.

"Wheat doesn't go in beer. Beer is yeast and hops."

And my favorite: "Guinness isn't a beer, it's a draught."

On a tour at Sam Adams the tour guide was explaining crystal malts. He said the difference between them is how long they're roasted. Crystal 40 is roasted for 40 minutes, crystal 10 is roasted for 10 minutes, crystal 80 is roasted for 80 minutes...

He also said they're different from 'regular' malts due to temperature. No mention of water or anything.

/facepalm

Fortunately, I'm sure nobody in the tour group remembered that but me.

Ugh. I've had this exact conversation with my sister-in-law and probably a half dozen other people. Is it safe? Am I going to get bochelism or E-coli?

I would assume they used the word "alternative" to mean synonym. And saying "an" instead of "the" left the door open for other alternatives unilsted (such as lager, etc.).

Answer was indead Ales. And yea I mean I dont see how ale is a alternative to beer but I guess its all in the wording.
