Well, it wasnt really overheard but I read it on an internet message board. Some guy who was making fun of uneducated beer drinkers said Sierra Nevada was made in Colorado.

Ooh, one more quick one.
Not really "overheard", but certainly relevant to the topic.
I work in Whitewater, WI, and there's a fairly new place in town with OK food but a few really fantastic things on tap.
It's the first and only of it's kind in town so far.
Anyway, the waitstaff goes from "OK" to "absolutely clueless" in their product knowledge.
With both food and beer.
You don't have to know everything about beer to work there, but please for the love of god know the products that you're selling.
There's only like a dozen taps. It's not that hard.
Anyway, they had "Red Hoptober" on tap, so I asked who made it (having never heard of it before myself). My friend and I had already bet that she wouldn't know and sure enough, she had to go check.
With this particular waitress, "I have to check" is ALWAYS the answer.
For some reason, the city was listed in the menu but not the brewery.
This one was Fort Collins, CO.
My buddy and I both look at each other and go "who's in Fort Collins?..."
*snap
"New Belgium!"
We'd figured that out before she was even halfway back to the bar.
I'm so happy that this place exists but by god, the owner (with whom I'm acquainted) REALLY has to get his staff to learn his menu.
We don't even expect them to tell us what it tastes like- just tell us what the god damn name of the product is!

Yeah,that tells me they are unprofessional and have bad management. A
resturant and employees not knowing the menu/beer menu suck. Even being new is no excuse for ignorance. I remember when there was a training wage also,not shure if that exists anymore.Not shure where im going with this.. but you get the idea. I hate when the menu states things on it that they dont permanantly have also.

I offered a buddy a pint off my Yuenglin pitcher while we were watching football last Sunday, and he responded "I don't like dark beer."

I have a buddy that no matter what style of homebrew I give him, he says: Wow this is great! It tastes just like Fat Tire!
