My training partner who found out that I brewed was telling me about the types of beer he likes, which included "the tripe-el." I know it's not that bad, just a mispronunciation, but now every time I see a tripel on the shelves or on tap, I think of tripe

"Best answer" for yahoo question "What beer has the highest alcohol?"

My BIL calls tripels that too. He like chimey and was telling me how awesome tripe-els were even though he's more of a lager guy according to him. So I said "yeah I brewed a tripel and it turned out pretty good." He just looked at me like I was the one pronouncing it wrong.

Therefore, by sound reasoning, anything that is not that same fizzy yellow water in appearance MUST be stronger. If it's not this, then it must be that, right?
I love when I have my Belgian strong ale on tap...it's not much darker than bud or miller, however it's 9%...so when "what do you have like bud?" guy comes over that's what he gets. I will pour my oatmeal stout for me at 4.5% and let the fun begin! I call it two for one night.

A bunch of friends and I were at a Craft Beer bar last weekend, and they had a nano-brewed Cask Ale on the menu (the name implied a farmhouse style ale). I asked our server if it was a farmhouse ale? She says "I'm not sure if it's brewed on a farm, I thought they made it next door. Want me to check for you?"

Really?! At a place called Beer Revolution

During a brew day a few weeks back my neighbor asked what I was cooking in my big kettle. I explained that I was brewing some beer, and he immediately got excited (he's an elderly retired gent who spends most of his time sitting on the front porch sipping Bud Lites). He asked me if he could have some when it was ready and I promised him I'd bring him over a six pack once it was finished.

A few hours later after I'd finished brewing and cleaned up he asked if he could have his six-pack now. I had to explain to him that it needed several weeks to ferment, age, clarify, and carbonate. I promised I'd bring him his six pack the day it was finished.

The poor old guy looked so sad when I told him he'd have to wait for his beer.... apparently he thought all I had to do was "pour in the alcohol" after I finished brewing and it'd be ready to drink.

"ABV" always means alcohol by volume, but the "low alcohol beer" allowed to be sold cold in Oklahoma (and a few other states) is 3.2% ABW, equivalent to 4.0% ABV.
For a while, 3.2% beers were allowed to be sold to 18+ in some states (while anything higher was relegated to 21+), leading some bars to ONLY carry such beers so they didn't have to check ID's much, and could serve the same supply to everyone.

Yup. Ohio was like that when we were that age. We of course all voted for it! It was nice to stop on the way home from school for a couple cold ones with the guys.

Ahh. Thanks for clearing that up. The phone app doesn't show the posters location so when he said "our", all I could figure was he was talking about home brewers.

Well actually (hehe), Bud Select 55 (if it's even made still) is apparently 2.4% and MGD 64 is 2.8%. Pabst has an Extra Light that sits at about 2.5%. So, yes, they would be for High School kids wanting to drink beer but not knowing any better.
