Wasn't that true once upon a time? Seems like my German born dad (around 1905) told me the same thing.

1)After offering a customer a micro brew lager. "I don't drink micro brew. It's too bitter."

2)Customer:"Is it light?"
Me: "Define light."

3)"Whatever so long as the tap handle's cool."

4)"At my wedding I want to have 1 keg of drinking beer like Coor's Lite and then 1 keg of great micro brew for beer snobs. Planning on Blue Moon."

5) "Don't be upset, I replaced all the beer I took." 12 pack of BL in my beers place.

A buddy of mine, who occasionally strays a step or two off the BMC path....but never VERY far, says that he drinks Bud Light to rehydrate after a night of partying.

He's no beer snob by any means.....not even much of a connoisseur....but it's still funny!

I work for the railroad and had to go to Montana for a few months to work. One night I was on a trip, and my engineer and I got to talking about the fact that I brew my own beer. He said, "I don't like those faggy beers! I'm a man's man and drink manly beer...Bud Light man! Now that's a beer!"

I'd like to see him try and put down a Russian Imperial Stout...but it's probably too "faggy" for him. haha

Another night I had an engineer tell me, "I only drink stouts with really high alcohol content...like Guinness." I tried telling him that Guinness was only around 4% and really Budweiser is a stronger beer. He wouldn't listen though..."NOOOOO!!! It's like 10 or 11%"

Oh, man!
I had to add my story after that last one.
Was in a convenience store in Cleveland, Mississippi a few years ago.
A friend of mine was on staff at Delta State University at the time.
Keep in mind that home brewing is (I think) still illegal down there, and microbreweries have only been allowed for a little while.
In fact, I don't think that Lazy Magnolia even existed yet at the time.
Anyway, said friend had convinced this local convenience store to start stocking some better beers.
Nothing too major, but I know that Shiner Bock and Sierra Nevada were in the cooler.
So myself and two other folks are taking a few moments to peruse the limited selection, and one guy behind us butts in front of us and says "Excuse me. Don't know what y'all are standing around looking at. I'm just going to grab my Bud."
Another more, shall we say, "rural" fella was right behind him and basically did the same thing, but in a slightly less polite manner. Said "Nothing better than Bud. 'merikan!"
It cracked us up at the time, but later it dawned on me that here was this Southern boy making fun of us "un-American" Yankees, while he was the guy grabbing the European owned, internationally distributed, decidedly German/American-in-style Budweiser. We walked out with a sixer each of Shiner Bock (Texas!) and Sierra Nevada (California!). Can't get much more " 'merikan" than that!



Reason: Corrected my hypocritical mistake of listing the wrong state for Sierra Nevada...
