They just wanted to be told something they didn't already know...whether it was right or wrong!

My brother actually knows his beers fairly well and drinks the good stuff, but he swears up and down that he hates lagers. I always have to remind him that you can't just say that. It doesn't work that way. There are great Marzens and black lagers (etc.) that are not only fantastic, but can also be quite indistinguishable from ales. Then he calls me a beer snob.

Ugh I do hate getting "Ale" when I ask what kind of beer something is. Doubly so if it's at a "beer bar".

I was told Belgians don't make real beer because they are to fruity. As the guy was pouring a Franz hefe dunkle. I will have to admit I giggled inside.

Continuing with the whole "ale" thing. I was reading the description for a brewfest and it said something like, "You'll find a variety of beers. From IPAs to ales..." It's one thing for a person to confuse things, but a brewfest?

Shock top is awful! But my friends who drink BMC think it's the Sh*t. Hey to each his own, but I'm happy with my IPA's

I do get bothered sometimes by the, "I prefer lagers." Or, "I don't like dark/hoppy beers." Then again, these are just people who have very novice-level beer terminology. If we didn't talk to them, the likelihood of them attempting to describe their likes would be greatly reduced.
Yeah, the guy who taught me how to brew beer asked me what kind of beer I liked and I said, "Oh, I don't know, I mostly like ales and lagers." He didn't say anything, but he certainly made a face.

I don't get the hatred for Shocktop and Blue Moon. I'm quite fond of both of them, despite knowing that they're owned by the big international conglomerates so often called "BMC"...
It doesn't change the fact that they are easy drinking beers with some actual flavor- the fact that they're offered in so many bars and restaurants now does amazing things for "real" craft beer.

If you don't care for them, that's your opinion and prerogative, but that doesn't make them foul just because you say so, no matter how loudly or often.
Hell, I drank Blue Moon for a while as I was dipping my toes into craft beer, and it's what gave me the confidence to try imported belgians and other superficially similar beers like hefe's- cloudy beer is almost scary when all you've been exposed to is fizzy yellow water.

I'm by no means an expert, but I know a lot more now because I was introduced to the rest of the beer world.

Exactly. And it seems to me that there are an awful lot of requests for a Blue Moon clone recipe...

Like I said to each his own, I just don't prefer them myself. Personally they taste like fake oranges. But if you like it go ahead and drink it. If it's what go you into craft brewery then GREAT! Like I said I personally don't like them.
