What's supposed to be the funny part? I count three:

1) "Get the biggest keg you can."
2) "Nah dawg..."
3) Thinking bud is somehow more of a beer than bud light.

Not really overheard, or about beer. But close enough!

Reading a Swedish beer book, they're currently explaining exactly what a beer is - and how it differs from wine, cider and mead...

"Beer is fermented from grains. Wine is fermented from grapes. Cider should be made from apples. And mead was made from honey."

Okay... first of all, should? And secondly... was? Is no one making mead anymore, or did we just stop using honey?

Well I finally read through this whole thread after a few days of coming back to it.. Funniest thing ive heard about beer lately ? Reading the acronym BMC for roughly 150 pages or so without knowing what it meant and just assuming it referred to the fizzy yellow light lagers over there in the USA.. Then finding out I am correct :P

Patron: Once you go IPA, It's hard to go back.
Waiter: Well, I recomend the brown, but a spinoff of an IPA is the ESB.

That is an extra special waiter.
He doesn't know beer 10% of the time all the time. As far as waiters are concerned though; he needs to start a school cause beer is not in their scope. Usually

I had a waiter tell me the other day that they got a new beer in that is really refreshing. It's oddly enough made with grass. It's called st. Arnold's lawn mower.

I wouldn't doubt. I actually ordered it and played along saying I Can taste the grass. My wife was hitting me under the table.
