Yooper, I am definitely thankful for my Dad and Uncles it's just embarrassing that they don't like the same beer is all, after all I was
Oh, I know. And I didn't mean to pick on you at all! But, really, 10 years from now when one (or more) of them may be gone, you'll laugh about them drinking all that **** beer and expecting you to do the same.

My dad always criticized my "fancy beer". Always. And my homebrew. But now I think of it fondly, him drinking a Budweiser while I lamented the choices!

Well, Sammy, who's to say they are not right and you're wrong? It's all a matter of perspective. To them, it might seem like you are pushing the fact that you have better taste, or more simply, are better than them. I'm sure they just want what they are used to.

A guy at work owns a bar downtown. We went there after a big school event to unwind and he came and sat down next to us and he called me a F*&n Fancy Beer <something or other>. See, he likes his beer, "Like sex on a beach. F*&n next to water!" to use his word. That's what he likes and that what he sells. And I can tell you almost all of the people who hang out at his bar drink the same 3-4 beers (You know which ones...)

No point in getting upset at what others like. They are the ones who are missing out on the vast array of craft beer experiences. Let them live their dream.

And I agree that it might have been more thoughtful if they had taken you out to a place with craft beer, but they did take you out, and hopefully paid your tab. I'd have focused more on having a good time with them and forgetting about the lack of good beer. Just make your snide comments and jokes about their poor taste and choke down a couple of the most flavorful beers they had to offer.

Life is too short to drink crappy beer, but it's also too short to miss out on the good times with family and friends. you can get back at them by taking each one out to a fancy place and making them drink some IPAs...

Here's why- my dad appreciated me making great beer and enjoying it, but he actually called my beer 'that homebrewed ****' and made fun of my "fancy beer". One time, he was coming for a visit so I made some cream ale way in advance and lagered it. I created him at the door with a cold one, and he and my brother kicked that keg that day! The next day, they bought some Budweiser since I was out of cream ale since they didn't like anything else. He had a habit of drinking out of the can of his beer, and turning the tab to the side. And then saving it for later if he didn't finish it.

Whenever I went to visit him we would go to a beer bar and I'd get my 'fancy ****' and he'd get a Bud. He laughed about me going to Minneapolis to take my BJCP tasting exam to be a judge, but he was proud underneath.

I got a call on January 3 that he had suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.

I flew down there immediately, arriving about 18 hours after he was found. In the fridge was 1/2 can of beer, with the tab turned. My brother and sister-in-law each grabbed a cheapie can of beer, and held up my dad's unfinished beer and that was the last beer I had with my dad.

Even though he drank beer I don't care for, I will always have those memories have sharing a few beers with my dad at ball games, parties, and while we watched TV.

I would do anything right now to have him back, sitting with me drinking his **** beer.

When you think of it that way, how lucky you are to have 4 uncles and your dad to go out with and support you and drink a beer with them! For that, I'd choke down a half dozen Bud Lights, and call it good.
I'm not ashamed to admit I'm crying at my desk, but hiding it from my coworkers isnt easy.

Find the most hoppy and high alcohol beer you can and tell him to drink it. If he can't call him a girl.

Last time someone called me a girl for drinking was because I called it a night after drinking 6 IIPAs and he was on like 8 MGD 64s. And he called me a girl. Next time we met I brought a case of Yuengling and we went beer for beer, and I wrecked him. I drink 16 of the beers in the case and he couldn't even finish 8.

Me too, James.

I miss him so badly. Thanks for your empathy- I appreciate it!

If he was still in Ohio, sitting in his damn chair watching that stupid NASCAR (and Nationwide circuit), I would happily buy him cases and cases of Genny Cream Ale. And drink them with him. And I would love it.

I would be more pissed that they didn't take you to the "gentlemen's club". Its not a bachelor party without licentious women rubbing their dirty arses all over you. Imean....in 'Merica thats how we do it!

I hate "gentlemen's clubs." Its the adult equiv. of giving a kid a metric ton of candy and then forcing them to sit through Chelsea Handler reciting the phone book without figeting.

I have 0 farking clue who chelsea handler is...probably why I like to attend bachelor parties where there's naked wimmens....I have never frequented strip clubs, only really gone for bachelor parties, but have had some great times in the process. Its pretty funny to sick a group of strippers on a guy thats about to devote his life to a woman. the whole thing is full of laughs. especially if there's a particularly fat/unattractive girl working. sick-em!
I need a whip smiley to place here

Honestly, I can't think of anything I would like less... other than perhaps a celebratory arse-kicking. I made my best man, who is a woman coincidentally, promise she wouldnt go that route.
