It sounds to me that you sir have done a fine job!
We have a craft beer bar here in NZ that stocks a lot of imported craft. I paid $12 for a pint of Racer 5, most of the reason is I would not be able to visit this bar again for a long while. While it was a good beer I couldn't completely gid rid of that voice in my head telling me I could have brewed 20 pints of beer that tasted just as good for the price I paid... I think I'm a bit cheap though
Man, that stuff is $4 for a bomber here...

A few years ago, on our way to my wifes sisters house for Christmas, I saw a young man with a Bud Light. Tattoo. Not really something I overheard but still funny or sad or ...What was he thinking!

No it was pretty much just a joke. We were poking fun at someone's friend/teammate who is incredibly tough and manly because he drinks BMC which does not contain estrogen like homebrew does....

Wouldn't there be more dirt or sand at the beach? I have seen those as well as the ones with the bottle openers in them. I don't think I would drink out of a shoe flask.

That reminds me of those dumb flip flop bottle openers. No, I don't want to open my beer with your sweat soaked flip flop. That's smurfing disgusting.

Fast forward to today, he was going to a professional basketball game and I told him to be careful and not drink too much. He said that was not going to drink at all. He will not pay $6.00 for a 22 oz glass of Bud Light. I had to laugh but I think that I created a monster or at least a beer snob.
A lot of sports venues sell good local microbrews here in Indy now. They are usually the same price as the BMC stuff too so it's a no brainer. Still stupidly expensive but it's nice to have a decent choice now.

College girls picking beer at the grocery store:Girl 1 "do you think I can I handle this beer?" Girl 2 "Well you've had Guinness and that's an extra stout, if you can handle that you can handle any beer". Then they proceeded to make fun of Girl 1 for being so ditsy.

I'd love to see a survey to see how many people think Guinness is more alcoholic than, say, Corona. From the comments I get every time I serve a dark beer, I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the 90% range.
