We could have a lot of fun with this.
Harass the Beau's guys with stupid comments like "man this bogwater stuff is WAY hoppy, I can't finish it! must be a triple IPA" or "so this *insert greener futures batch* is made from bourbon?" watch them slowly breakdown.

I always have the hardest time trying to explain a beer to non beer geeks because I'm like "it smells like vomit, yeah that nice vomit smell... but in a good way, you know?" I don't think anyone other than my brother gets me.

Another time...

Buddy: "Is it ok to eat one of these pellets?"

Me: "Yeah, but I wouldn't..."

Buddy: Chomp, chomp "Oh, citrusy and bitter!"

Me: "Good luck with that."

Buddy: "Ahh, that's intense."

Me: "Yep."

Buddy: Later, "Oh, that really stays with you."
Buddy: Next day, "Man, I tried brushing my teeth...didn't really help."
'Round my house we have a rule: if you make a pellet drop on the ground, you HAVE to eat it... to appease the god Humulus Lupulus.

It also will reduce the bitterness, which is why some folks will even add it t non foamy beers

A pet peeve of mine about being served draft beer is bartenders that think they're doing you a favour by pour as little head as possible and foiling the body almost to the rim of the glass. Fairly prevalent at restaurants around here
