Its an alternative to saying beer. Instead if calling whats in your glass a beer you can call it an ale.

Well, I just thought of this and I'll share for the laughs.

Many years and beers ago, I Could have been overheard saying: "it's called a tripel because it's fermented 3 times, a dubbel is fermented twice"

This may have already been posted, but...

I like Guinness. It's a decent irish stout that is widely available, and without it, nitro beers would probably be a lot harder to find. But it is fairly popular among the "lesser-refined" beer crowd. Lot's of folks who basically just drink the cheap American rice lagers also like Guinness. But the mystique surrounding it for them is kind of funny. I've heard many people talking about how !@#$ed up they've gotten on Guinness because it is so strong. But as us refined, completely non-snobby beer connoisseurs know, it is equal in strength to a Coors Light. Always fun to bring up this little fact when someone is talking about the strength of Guinness.

I have a friend who endless says "my beer is so hoppy"!! Your beer has an infection becasue you don't clean anything you brew with.. All the stuff including the carboys are crusty from the last brew 6months ago. He has served beer to others that he knew had an infection.

Let him know that he is the "prostitute with AIDS" of the homebrew world.

It's so nasty, his tubing is brown to black with stuff growing inside. His battle cry is "anything that can grow in beer can't hurt you" He has been brewing for more than 40years and can only use "kits"; then he talks down to me like "I was brewing before you were born"... I am finished judging old family friends and venting on the the net.

Well, he has a point.

Maybe he likes the wild fermented stuff.

OK I have 2
This one happened a while back but sticks with me. My wife and I were out to dinner and stopped at a place called "steak and ales" I asked the server what ales she had on tap and she said both bud and bud light--- not even a bottle of anything except BMC!
The next one was just last week. My neighbor came over to tell me about another homebrewer he knows and how this friend and I should meet because we both like "yales". Sam means well and enjoys any homebrew I give him just made me laugh a little then say, you mean ales then have him go right "yales".
