Yeah, a little learning is a dangerous thing.

Just out for dinner with my wife and she overheard a good one from the people behind her.

"Brewing beer at home is sooo illegal! The only place it's legal is Louisiana."

Not so much funny but a victory. My mother has a friend who I've been slowly turning into a beer snob. She had been putting lime into her SA Winter Lager...because some dumb bartender told her to. Apparently after a holiday party, the report is that she admits it's better without the lime. It's not some cheap ass Corona, it's a good winter drinkin' beer. I'm glad to have won.

All of these are from today in the course of a 5 minute conversation about what alcohol the new guy at work likes.

"Cerveza isn't beer. It's made differently." He was probably thinking of Corona, so he did have a point. That isn't what he meant though.

"A shot is 2 ounces."

"You make apple wine by cooking spices, white wine, and apple juice together."

He was very insistent on all of these points.

This particular law is cited often and usually misunderstood. What it really is is a law to regulate beer prices and taxation. In order to close a possible loophole (i. e. someone wants to charge more on the grounds that they used expensive ingredients), it is stated that only barley malt, hops and water can be used to calculate prices. Needless to say, previously popular spiced beers became unattractive to brewers.

My favorite is when someone asks me if I drink Budweiser, and I say, "Nope". And they're like, "Why not? It's the King of Beers".
