I would have handed the glass to him and told him to bring me a fresh beer and a clean glass.

I was at a graduation party last night for a family member, and overheard something a guy was saying... I immediately thought of this thread.

Guy at the party- "Guinniss is so thick it will stay cold all day"... everyone laughs, other guy says "oh yeah, that stuff is thick.."

Guess a Guinness Extra Stout would be cause for a minor aneurysm? But agreed that beggars shouldn't be choosers.

... even if the waiter was lousy at his or her job... if they try their best.. then I tip good. But to pour a bottle after the customer said not to.... that's a 50 cent tip.

I'd leave a single penny...or maybe even a peso

I have to keep explaining to a coworker the difference between ales and lagers. She told a customer today that a session pale ale is a basic ale. I asked her what she meant by that, she replies, "well all ales are the same. "

I had to make a diagram showing her the different styles and that ales are for sure not the all the same. Hopefully I broke through to her, but unfortunately I doubt it :/.

I agree. I can't tip well when they deliberately denied my wishes.

It should be simple. The waiter removes the glass and bottle. Returns with a new bottle and glass. Now, the waiter steps away slowly, only touching the bottle again to bus the table.

Drinking at my buddy's house (who I brew with), and his wife asked if she should keep the bottle we had just drank to reuse. I told her it was a Belgian bottle and we typically don't use them...there was a long conversation about the fact that we'd need a corker, so I showed her one in the Northern Brewer catalog that was on the table, and she said,

"A Portuguese floor corker? Sounds like a crazy sex move!"

I haven't laughed that hard in a REALLY long time.
