I reiterate. I am lucky, or is it unlucky? The guys I hang with would probably drink chicha beer if I made it.

I once had a friend ask me my if homebrew "tasted like Budwiser." I just about smacked him upside the head. Instead I educated him as to the finer points of beer and he now doesn't drink any BMC product.

Hands dad a 2009 Stone Vertical Epic Clone
"Whew! This is too hoppy for me"
Or being in a college town I get a lot of BMC comments
Hands friend dogfish 60 clone
"This is ok, but I like how miller triple hops their beer."
Give someone cream of 3 crops, and tell them its better than BMC
"yea? is it cold brewed?"
I wrote a poem about IPA's in my creative writing class
one line was
"Pilsner glass abode"
to which my to which my professor replies
"Oh I didn't get it until you said Pilsner. I remember now IPA's are a kind of Pilsner."

My friends and neighbors all were real beer fans to begin with, or have since been converted. In fact neighbor that I helped put up the fence for is coming over tomorrow to brew. He wants to start homebrewing.

This guy from work who sampled my beer and said..
"Yeah, miller light can stand up to your beer. It's triple hopped you know"!
Me "It's triple watered too".
Him" What I am saying is that they have to put more hops in miller light than you put in your beer".
Me " It's just clever marketing. They never put any hops in their beer to begin with. Zero times three is still zero".

Nope, not when so many people refuse to be anything but ignorant. I do my absolute best to not overstep on topics to which I do not know but due to BMC mind set those "beer" drinkers consistently do.

To be a more on topic, I was very pleasantly surprised last weekend when I brought over craft beer and a bottle of my apple wine to a co-workers craw fish boil. Everyone was very receptive and complimentary. I was a bit worried as most of the people are extremely religious and do not drink very often if at all.

Yeah, I know those types bubbachunk. Say they never drink and stay away from beer and liquor like the plague but are total winos. It has "wine" in the name so they figured it'd be okay

I find your comment to be worse than your coworker. He doesn't know any better. The triple hopped comments are the perfect opportunity to explain how just about every beer has bittering, favoring, and aroma hops. Don't just make fun of someone like that, maybe they can be converted yet. I have recently converted a long time coors light drinker.

This is a bit off topic, yet seems like the place to ask:

I was looking at a menu of a restaurant I was considering taking SWMBO to this past weekend. They have their own brewery there, plus serve several local brews. On the menu, though, your beer options for $4 for a pint and $6 for a pilsner. Anybody got any clue about this? I was looking on-line so couldn't ask the wait staff. Do they think pilsner is another word for "big glass"?
