At the beer store a couple of kids were talking about mixing and matching a good six pack. After going around all the craft brew section, they discussed how they never heard of any of them. Then to the European section, same discussion. When they hit the Mexico section, they got excited. Corona, Tacate, and XX's, high fives each other and went to buy it.

Are you kidding me? The Craft brew section has about 75 breweries in alphabetical order! They "never heard" of any?

The myth in the first one is actually true. The ingredients are "burned" and roasted more. Is that the funny thing about beer?

Haha. Awesome. My boss insists you can make booze with more than 100% alcohol. When asked how that is possible, he just says that's what distilling does.

The fact that he is eligible to vote is terrifying.

Heard at the Ruddy Duck "Europeans don't drink beer like Americans. They sip and enjoy every nuance; and only have one beer a day".

I was asked yesterday if my beer brewing equipment looks like the setup Trapper John and Hawkeye had in "the Swamp" from M.A.S.H. (I believe they were distilling gin in the Swamp).

I don't know about the rest of Europe, but when I visited Greece it was quite common to have only one glass of beer, refilled several times. I guess they don't like doing dishes or something....

I have gotten the question "do you need a still for that?"

I think a lot of folks arent entirely sure what distillation or a still is. I dont mind an earnest question from a person who just doesnt know.
