Speaking of Geissuns I had a few people tell me that the strange taste of was caused by rats dying in the fermentation in early days and now they brew it with raw steak to get that original taste. No matter how dumb that is people still believe it.

A guy at WholeFoods told me New Glarus doesn't distribute to Illinois because they don't like Illinois. Yeah.... That's gotta be it. That and the other 49 states they don't distribute to.

Haha That's a good one.

Uhhhhhhh.....sure. That makes sense.
My niece this Thanksgiving: "I like dark beers.......I drink Yuengling"

I suppose compared to the Miller Lite she usually drinks, she might consider Yuengling "dark", but.......................

A little off topic, it isn't so funny as much as frustrating. I was at a place in Austin called Red's Porch and I was trying to ask what seasonals they had on tap then the waiter cut me off mid sentence and asked "Light, Dark, or hoppy?" I was a bit frustrated by this because he completely ignored my question and treated me as though I had no idea what I was looking for.

My favorite line regarding beer was on The Blue Collar comedy channel on Sirius

When someone asks me "what is your favorite beer", I usually reply "my ninth". That's when I suddenly have the ability to dance and sing.
