Guys, talking about people who don't know as much about beer as you do isn't funny. Let's get back to funny things we've overheard about beer!

Mad props getting things back on track

My brother told a guy that came into his shop that I brew my own beer. The guy then preceded to ask my brother if I "made hot beer or cold beer?"

The only thing I can think he MIGHT have been referring to was lagering, but I highly doubt that. If I was around to hear that I probably would have turned around walked away.

Maybe he was thinking about the German's who prefer their beer warm? Definitely a funny comment though!

I thought that was the British. The Germans make their beer cold.

I know I've seen similar threads on here but I couldn't find any so I figured I'd start a new one.

A pronoun? What is the antecedent of this pronoun?

He's using it as a proper name of a beer style,rather than as the generic descriptor it is.
