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.
Honestly what bugged me the most is that they charged more for Leinies. It isn't that much more expensive than regular Miller products.

I was at Bevmo a few weeks back, and two guys were looking at beer as I normally do.

One guy was telling the other about IPA's and how"they lay you down", etc.

The only problem was, he was saying IPA as if it were a word, he pronounced it "eepah"

Problem is, every time I'm there now, with the wife or a friend, I jokingly call them eepah's. And Laugh to myself, I am sure someone has overheard me saying it, and thought I was an idiot.
