What's up with people just taking the smallest little sip of a beer you give them to try (homebrew or commercial) and then giving their opinion? ..... take a drink already! !!!!

They are scared they might die a terrible death. And maybe they could be scared of something darker than pale yellow? It could just be"actual- taste" they are scared of, a double ipa may make their eyes bulge and possibly pee their pants. Just say "Careful now,with that,eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeasy does it.."

Sippers are not real beer drinkers and should be treated as such. Do not offer them homebrew ever again. Make them ask for it and then give them crap about being a sipper. Save your beers for someone who will appreciate it. Sippers piss me off too....So are people who tell me my beer is really good and then they leave it sitting there half full all night.

I get this response at first from most people, but usually after one sip they start chugging and ask for another! I'm cool with that.

You have obviously never had someone else's infected and/or foul brew in your mouth. I smell after the pour. Cover the glass and swirl while looking for head and at the color. Uncover and smell again, then take a small sip. This allows me to know if I need to have another small sip and dump or sip it or if i need to take a big drink.

This doesn't even begin to cover sipping drinks... Like:
John Hennry - 3 lick ale
Founders - KBS/CBS
Sam Adam's - Utopias
Just to name a few or nearly any "Imperial" or "Eis" anything...

Trust me I have a glass 1/2 yard and a 2L glass boot for "chugging beers" but they need to be drinkable and sub 5% for those...

Well if I gave a beer to an experienced beer drinker I wouldn't really question how they tried it .... and I would trust their opinions .... but its usually these bmc drinkers that seem actually frightened by the smell of hops and a Color other than yellow

So you are surprised/slightly offended that a person that normally drinks a lightly flavored beer doesn't want a mouthful of flavor?

I have some friends that are into hot peppers. What do you think about dicing up a few Scorpion peppers and eating it straight on a tortilla chip? They would be offended if you didn't eat a HUGE spoonful on your chip and heaven help you if you wanted tomato or cheese to cut it... You better not scream like a sissy either or say anything other than "Damn that is good, can I have more/is there a different kind to try?" in fear of the ladies kicking you out of their pepper tasting party.

I support this thread....I especially love when you know they took such a small sip all they got was head. All of my girlfriends friends are quickly earning themselves a lifetime ban from my kegerator. I may cut them off from my fantastic cooking as well, which they definitely wouldn't like.
