Overheard at John's Grocery here in Iowa City...crowded beer cooler and a few of this years barely legal college students picking out the nights beer, hands already full of bud light and coors light..."oh dude we have to get this one (Bells 2 hearted), it's made in Michigan so it's gotta be good."

As opposed to beers brewed in any other state or country for that matter...I walked out with Boulevard Saison-Bret, La Choufee Houblon and some Framboise for the wife...I spent more on 3 bottles of beer than they spent for their whole night...maybe it's not a good thing to be a beer snob?

Is that anything like bringing out the Hellman's? I instructed my wife to get me a 6'r of IPA for National IPA day. My older son the manager steered her towards the Lagunitas IPA I didn't see at Giant Eagle yet myself. Reminds me a lot of my 1st IPA in My Gallery. Being my 1st West Coast IPA (that I know was one),it was very pleasant indeed.

It's down at ward, next to the farmers market in the space that Tropics used to have.

I was there when they had a bunch of Cantillon available. To date Iris at REAL is the most expensive single beer I've purchased, but well worth it - luckily per diem is good in Honolulu.

That's why I loved the quote. I eat Mac n cheese every now and then, and have a BL from time to time as well, but to say that's all Ill drink is a bit childish. Branch out a bit, try the steak, try the lobster, he'll, try the hamburger helper even. My rule of thumb is; I won't knock a beer till I've had a six pack back to back, then if I still don't like it, ill swear it off.

I was at BWW (I know, but it was where my friends wanted to go...) And I ordered a pint of Arrogant Bastard, the bartender said "ugh, that stuff tastes like bark much." I had my friends try it and while it was better received than the Wormtown brewery ipa I had at first, they were inclined to agree with her haha.

So I was in the store the other day. I over heard a guy talking about beer. He was a somewhat gangster type. So I slowed down with my six pack of Anchor Steam in hand. He is telling his wife "Hey Babe I'm going to get some crazy beer tonight" he picks up a Left Hand Brewing Co, Milk Stout Nitro. Say yeah this one looks weird. Starts reading it and says Oh that's nasty babe it has like milk in it. I am not getting that it sounds crap. Not sure but I think he just pick up his Budlight. It made my day
