I heard nearly the exact same thing two weeks ago.

Most people assume all ales are pales/IPAs. I just let comments like these roll off anymore because otherwise I end up going into a detailed rant on beer styles!

*edit* most BMC drinkers I mean

Someone I know found out I homebrewed and asked "Do you brew lagers or beers? I tried a lager once and didn't like it. I only like beer." then took another drink off his bud light.

That might piss you off, but ignoring it or acting like its wrong just because its not your favorite seems silly.
I've never seen or tried Yuengling, only heard about it here a couple times. I would assume "lager", in that situation, meant Samuel Adams Boston Lager. But what do I know.

It has nothing to do with not liking the beer (this is my go to beer in crappy bars), nor is it about being silly, and I wasn't even near it's home market. I'd give him the same answer if he'd asked for, I'll take a beer, I'll take a vodka, I'll take a pop, etc....

Don't want a stupid look when you order? Don't place a stupid order.

I've never heard either referred to as just "lager ". Sam> Yeungling > Budweiser, in my opinion. I don't think Yeungling is a whole lot better than BMC...but I'll certainly drink it.

Here in Philly, you ask for a lager in your average neighborhood bar, that's what you get.

I've been hearing radio ads for Yeungling lately that say something like, "when you're at a bar, ask for a lager. You'll get a Yeungling" but if I ever tried that, I'm pretty sure I'd just get a blank stare or a BMC.
