I'm going to try and start a new trend.

Instead of calling it BMC, since that name is a little too technical for most beer-drinkers, I'm going to start making the distinction between commercial beer and non-commercial beer.

Commercial beer, obviously, are the beers that have commercials on the television.

I have a organization, I know what I'm doing.

He then holds up the beer soaked loaf of bread and comments it wasn't very good.

Regular people just don't understand. You have to filter it.

He drinks and makes the face.

Are the additives gone now?

Hahaha!

Real beer is made from barley, hops, yeast and water. No additives; just beer.

Sponsored by blablabla

The interview guy drinks his beer and the other guy says: Do you have fine beer? Can I have the last sip?

He then filters it more on the speaker, explaining the motion from the music makes the crap fall to the bottom.

Does it really fall to the bottom?

Yes.... I think.

Sponsored by blablabla.

When he swings it around over his head he says "Now the beer is pasteurizing in the bucket here"

Are the blablabla gone now?

Beer face.

Sponsor.

If you have to choose which beer, my fine beer or your filtered beer - which one would you drink?

He hesiates "Hmm, if I... but... hay, it's stacked in your favor. If I pick..." he then picks his beer, and drinks it defiantly and says it's really tasty.

The translation got a bit messy. xD
Awesome. Thank you.

While buying a bottle of Stone IPA:

Clerk: This beer is made in India?
Me: No, India Pale Ale means it has more hops.
Clerk: Hops?
Me: I has more flavor. It is more bitter.
Clerk: It is better.
Me: No, bitter...

But if one doesn't watch TV one will not know to which beers your refer. And you could be accused of calling Zima beer.

So, the 7 micro/nanobreweries in my town, all of whom sell beer commercially to local pubs, as well as directly to the public from their retail counter (some of whom even sell through the local liquor stores), are not "commercial?"

Then how do we distinguish between licensed, multi-bbl operations brewing it for profit, and homebrewers brewing it for fun?

To add to the topic, I'd have to say the most bizarre (I guess maybe funny?) thing I've heard about beer is when I've offered a homebrew to a guest, and they say, "No thanks, I don't like beer."

Huh? What do you mean you "don't like beer?" There are hundreds of different kinds of beer. "I just don't like the taste." Which taste? That's like offering someone a slice of almond hazelnut cheesecake and them replying that they "don't like cake" because they once had a slice of a lemon watermelon poundcake that they didn't like.

In those situations, is it worth it to try and educate them about all the different kinds of beer, and encouraging them to try some variety to see the differences? Or do you just decide they're probably a lost cause and let it go?

It's a lost cause. I was planning to be a good neighbor and hook up the new guy that moved in next door, only to find out that he doesn't like the taste of beer. A couple of questions led to the horse piss yellow analogy (which I don't particularly disagree with); pretty obvious that BMC equals beer to this guy.

But... he has an opinion and is happy with said opinion. Who am I to try to evangalize craft beer to him?

Easily one of the best beer descriptions I've ever read! I've never had Heady Topper, but now I must.

I actually prefer Southern Tier 2xIPA to Heady, but a lot of people seem to like Heady. I guess I'm just not a huge fan of Simcoe.

I was drinking an Oude Brune at Marble Brewery Saturday evening. It's served in a goblet (and very tasty). A guy was asking about the beers on the menu, specifically the imperial stout that his friend had told him about. The server pointed to the goblet in front of me and said that the imperial stout was served in one of those glasses. The guy said, "No, he was talking about a beer." The server looked confused and i tried not to laugh. I'm guessing the guy had never seen beer served in a goblet before.
