I work for a company owned by the infamous Koch Brothers. A new operator today has been trying to convince me that Jim Koch of Sam Adam's is related to the Koch Brothers. :face palm:

He's also telling me that he tried to use a mr beer but their recipes suck. Couldn't get it to taste anything like real beer. Ha!

Went to lunch with some people today at Slater's 50/50. It's a fancy hamburger place with 50+ taps, lots of good craft/import beers. Conversation when ordering went like this:

My friend, to the waiter: Can you recommend a good Belgian beer?
Waiter: Duvel is a good one.
Me (thinking): Good choice
Waiter: Or Stella Artois
Me: ::facepalm::

I mean... I guess it's technically Belgian... I guess

I'm pretty sure anyone of us has said something along the lines as something any one of those guys said. I mean, if we weren't beer geeks or beer geeks in training, then we wouldn't be on the interwebs on a home brewing forum talking about the vast greatness of beer/techniques/sampling/ingredients.

Slaters is awesome. And they just put one in ~2.5 mi from my house. I'm thinking of asking them how much rent will be if I want to move in ;-)

I was at a bar last night and the beer menu is pretty sparse but says it has Avery's Ellie's Brown Ale on tap. I ask the waitress for that and she says, "We are out of that one, but we have Dos Equis!"
