I ordered the Dos Equis, and it wasn't even the amber, it was the lager.

"There's water in beer, but no beer in water" my bro as we start hiking with a backpack of beer and no water. All I could think was "you have a point."

My wife was at a restaurant in St Louis with her mom, aunt, and sisters and asked the waiter what beers they had. He spouted of the typical BMCs and Schlafly. She then asked what Schlafly beers they had, to which he replied "the regular one." With a confused look on her face she asked what he meant and he told her it was their wheat. When he brought it out it was a pale ale. She just drank it to avoid any further confusion.

To be fair, I probably would have assumed pale ale in the first place with the "regular one" description.

It's pretty decent too.

I was at my usual bottle stop not too long ago. Got some stone collaboration "Perfect Crime" black saisons and a bottle of Odell's "Meddler" Oud Bruin. While I was getting ringed up their delivery driver (yeah, alcohol delivery guy, plus anything else they might have in the store, smokes, jimmies etc) asked with excitement if I was buying "the new one", meaning the oud bruin. I said yeah, I was looking for a sour tonight and his face screwed up and he said proudly "I haven't tasted it, but I'm pretty sure it's not sour, it's a brown ale". I kept quiet.

Another good one was overhearing co-workers talk about beer and one of them said he enjoyed a good Belgian Red Ale (can't remember the name, something with an M? I was pretty surprised he had taste) that one of the local bars carries, but by and large his favorite beer of all time is Killians...go figure.

This is a 'lame things' you've heard thread now... so here's mine.

Just a minute ago I was in a liquor store with a really great beer selection. I went to the end of the wall where the good stuff ended and worked my way back to the front. Three dudes came in and were like, 'Wow, they have a big selection!' and I was about to say 'Cool right?!' but they passed it all up and went to where the good stuff ended and said 'Ahhh! The domestics! Alright!' and picked a bottle each of the big three.

I kinda thought about telling them to try the Stone or Green Flash or other great things in the fridge, but my 2-year-old kid was on my shoulders, had my hands full.

Saw this highlife bottle in a porta-potty at a baseball game. Couldn't tell if it was beer or pee. Does it matter?
