Hey, at least it's a legitimate question and not some knuckle-headed assumption!

This one is only half related to misconceptions about beer. My wife was at a happy hour and a coworker told her that a hard apple cider was beer and apple juice mixed. Luckily I've taught her well enought that she quickly corrected the blunder.

I told the waitress that I appreciated their attention to serving it at the right temperature. She said I was the first person to ever tell her that. She went on to say that most people ordered it and then complained that it was warm.
Crap. Am I the only one seeing flashbacks of the tipping thread that wasn't supposed to be a tipping thread?

"Oh, so you make beer? Do you make all kinds? I know there's light beer, like Bud Light, and dark beer, like Blue Moon."

Response by my family to every beer I make, no matter the style or the IBU's: "Boy, that sure is hoppy."

Me: "But, it's a pilsner..."

Them: "Mhmm, a hoppy one"

When all you have is an adjective, everything looks like... Hrm, a place to use it, I suppose.

You should tell him he's wrong. Light acually refers to the flavor.

After a long brew day, a friend of mine messaged me and asked what I was up to. Told him I was relaxing after said brew day.

The follow up question was how the beer tasted. He thought the beer was done right after the brewing process.

I was on a job site once and some guy was arguing with me about Guinness. He was adamant that Guinness was made by 'scraping the bottom of the Budweiser tanks.' Unbelievable.
