A girl about the same age said "alcohol destroys lives" and got an approving nod from her grandmother. I didn't know what to say. Some battles are not worth fighting. It does irk me that people raise children to be afraid of everything, and cast blanket judgements.

You should have threatened her in a desperate manner, and then huffed and puffed yourself into a panic attack.

The word, if it's your kid, isn't 'afraid' it's 'cautious'. Kids grow up. Grandmothers die. Beer bellies bloat. Etc.

A+ on that topic redirect.

I heard a radio ad today for a recently opened brew pub. They compared their "freshest beer in Idaho" to the ever popular BMC. I just wonder why they would bother. BMC drinkers won't change based on a radio ad from some "froofy $4 a pint place! 'Merica!", and craft drinkers will assume either they don't know beer well enough to make anything good, or recognize it's a full-of-crap marketing technique and avoid the place out of spite.

Don't let him knock you, some people like to pull this type of stuff, drawing on antiquated material from beer history, to sound like they know something, and make these ridiculous types of corrections. Makes them feel smart or something. "Well actually it used to be blah blah," Well it ISN'T now so no still wrong. We had a few throw downs in this thread over this type of thing already... I remember a nightmare of something about an archaichly phrased book??
What exactly is your problem? The piece says, accurately, what "ale" used to mean. It then goes into how the meaning of "ale" has changed over the centuries. Nowhere does it say that the current usage for the word "ale" is wrong. Nor is it trying to "correct" anything.

I helped my best friend on Earth's parents move into Florida this past weekend. I went to the beer distro with his father who was treating me to some beers, he knows I love craft brew....we step into the distro, and he goes, "the imports are over there, I'll be over here" as he moseys on over the the BMC stuff...the "import" section was, of course, the craft brew section. On a side note, I got some CC Jai-Alai and Bell's Two Hearted!

Good LAWD it's a long drive from Long Island to Florida!
