Funny Things You've Overheard About Beer:

"This isn't so bad"
Random person drinking warm bud out of a plastic bottle.
There was a big stink about that when they held the World Cup in Germany in 2006. The Germans tried to find a way to get their beers in, but nope, FIFA already inked the deal with Budweiser. That was one of the big reasons they started the Fan Zones in towns (usually the main square, large screens with all sorts of beer and food for sale, like 5-10 Euros to get in). Interestingly even non-German cities had them (I attended ones in Ulm, Munich and Prague).

Gometz: Had the Fanzones here too and apparently they were pretty cool. Managed to get tickets to four games and for the last 2 got some whiskey smuggled in to mix with my water aka beer. All in all was great.

A friend is a packaging engineer. He told me that the vortex bottle grooves are upside down from what would actually create a vortex while pouring. That's because the way the glass bottle is manufactured, a working vortex groove system was impossible to add. So it's even more bull**** than it sounds.

Why Budweiser specifically? Ya gotta buy Amurrican! None of these froofy imports like Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, or New Belgium!

Oh god. I too have gotten the "I don't mind craft beers, I'm just too patriotic" [and therefore will stick to American BMC]

coworker: did you see they're gonna resurrect the old Miller Lite? same style original cans and all!
me: I don't care about Miller Lite. or any other "Light" beer for that matter.
coworker: you gotta start watching football. they tell you what new beers are coming out.
me: I'll stick to my beer nerd friends and not a bunch of big guys in tights trying to hug each other roughly for beer info.

nowhere near my idea of fun. we're all made of the same ingredients, but we're all cut a little different.

EDIT: Carling Black Label in addition to PBR (I call 'em peebers... like pee beer) is a hipster as hell beer 'round these parts... Genesee Cream Ale too. I was rollin' with a pretty hipster crowd a few years back they're too snobby- even for me- also ditched the mustache for a beard.

Let me just go on record and say that Carling Black Label, PBR, Genny Cream and Stroh's (it was all malt/no adjunct at one time) are all very acceptable yellow beers in my opinion.

Carry on.

Is that the sportsball game where they forgot that balls are supposed to be spherical? I think I'm being taxed, despite a vote to the contrary, for their playground. For some reason they forgot to build a roof though so the joke is on them.
