He walked over to the taps grabbed the one obviously marked with a hefeweizen pulled a small sample and tasted. He looked at me and said, "No sir, it's Budweiser."

Where is that cluckk? Maybe I'll find I do like Bud after all!

With beer being one of the most consumed beverages in America you would think people would have some more knowledge about it..

There's another error people are going to be taking as science."
Sounds like much of the advice given in these forums: "I read X on HBT and ever since my beer has been great" never mind that they changed 20 other variables in the brewing process at the same time.
Eventually we all stumble onto a process that works....but few of us really know exactly what is happening, and the science..what really is happening.

People who have never drunk homebrew are wary to taste mine until I assure them they won't go blind. I've tried explaining the physics of distillation and the politics of prohibition, but they usually tune out by the time I get to the differences between beer and wood alcohol and just acquiesce to drinking the stuff.

My mother, who is an avid beer and gin drinker despite her ignorance, has told me that she doesn't like hops, and then proceeded to drink a pint of Fuller's ESB.

What the general public doesn't know about beer could (apparently) fill a moderately long forum thread.
