I think this is a common assumption.

My parents visited us for a few days this summer and my dad watched me brew a batch of beer. Every time I drank a beer after that he asked me if it was the beer I just brewed. Each time I explained that the beer will take a month or so because it has to ferment and he'd answer "Oh" but kept asking. Eventually my mom answered for me: "No, it has to ferment, dear!"

At least I taught someone something about beer.

I was at a bar with some friends for my birthday that had something like 40 or 50 beers on tap, most of which were worth drinking. We overheard a stereotypical collage guy come up to the bar and ask if he could get a pitcher of nati light. After a brief pause the bartender answered in a monotone: "No, you can't." I must admit, I laughed. But hey, we all start somewhere. I drank ridiculous amounts of miller high life before I became a hop head homebrewer.

The other day I caught a distributor trying to tell a guy that "Blue Moon" is made in Belgium.

I usually ignore this kind of outrageous nonsense, but enough was enough.

I turned to both of them and said, "Not True. The Blue Moon brand was created at The Sandlot Brewery at Rockies Field, home of said baseball team. Their primary job is exploring new brands that SAB-Miller / Coors wants to market as craft brands. They do a wonderful job, and are notorious at being welcomed in the craft scene by the "true" craft brands. Keith Villa, is a respected man of the scene."

To which the distributor said, "Well it was made originally in Belgium."

"Nope, although the original core style is of Belgium decent, that's about as far as it goes. If anything it has more British roots, than any-other European country. Being that SAB Miller is the primary owner and brewer of the brand..."

I flipped up the 12 pack to show 'em both the label that says, "Brewed and Bottled in Golden, Co."

Then I asked, "What else comes from Golden, CO."
The customer replies, "COORS!"
Bingo!
...sad.

Regarding Sam Adams being on the import list, I love when I see that in Cincinnati when I've heard they make more Sam Adams in Cincinnati than they do in Boston. Not sure if that's true but they do make it in Cincinnati.

The whole import vs. domestic pricing thing ticks me off. It's so outdated, implying that the more expensive (and thus better) beers must all be imports. It just leads to confusion about the cost of things, and ridiculous claims that pretty banal US beers are imports.

Agreed. I think it should say premium vs crap

They should distinguish craft/micro vs import vs domestic (mass produced). Obviously they're just calling micro/craft beer an import because it costs more.

Ya, and we make all the people from Wisconsin go through customs when they come to Minnesota.

It isn't just beer where people think import when it really is domestic. I've talked to adults who have never been more than one state from where they were born and they have no idea about the geography of the US let alone the rest of the world.
