I didn't come to this thread to read about the proper or improper use of the word "Beer" in a book title. I'm about 2 minutes away from I subscribing from one of the most fun threads on HBT. ::sigh:: some people just can't stay on topic.

Default I just found the thread, and only read the first couple posts....

"I don't like DARK beer"

I hear it ALL THE DAMN TIME! I just give them some IIPA and say, "here, this one isn't dark" LOL!!!

Of course most don't even know what a porter is either.
I believe a porter is the guy who carries your bags up to your room. God knows why anyone would want to drink him.

A good (non-brewing) friend of mine was talking about some steam beer I gave him.

"It's boiled down - like all the water is turned into steam - so there's tons of sugar left to ferment!" At least he liked the beer...I'm afraid if I told him it was California Common, he might think it was made with little bits of California.

...then, a couple days later, one of my co-workers, talking about the same beer, "it's really good. And totally homemade. He malts his own hops!"
