Do they think pilsner is another word for "big glass"?
A Pilsener is a type of glass, in addition to a type of beer:

It's still a bit confusing, though, because Pilsener more implies a shape than a size. But if that's how they do things, that's how they do it, I guess... It's not completely crazy, just a little bit of a confusing way of listing it.

Edit: Also, I was going to say that IME pilsener glasses are usually smaller than pint glasses, but I thought maybe I was misremembering and decided to keep my mouth shut. But Wikipedia seems to agree with me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_gl...#Pilsner_glass So that's doubly confusing...

They're probably referring to the typical large glass at bars. the 22oz pils.

This wasn't a comment, but funny none the less. I have an AHS Bitter in the kegerator and the wife and I had the dads over this past sunday along with a few family friends. One of the guys was drinking bud lite lime and he asked me if he could try the homebrew. I said "Sure, frosted mugs are in the freezer." I step out into the garage two minutes later and observed an AHS bitter inside of his bud lite lime bottle. Two inches of beer and the rest was head. After he drank it, he said "That was awsome. I'm going to use a glass this time." Great guy but I laughed my ass off.

I had a couple of neighbors over while I was brewing the other day.
One guy said the boil before hops smelled like raw meat. I said really, not to me.
The other guy tryed a summer wheat. After saying it was good he mentioned he didn't like bitter beers like Budwieser. I couldn't help but laugh.

Well I hear piss can be rather acidic, so maybe he is confusing acidic bite with bitterness?

"Is it safe to drink" must have heard that 10 or 15 times.

I have gotten the same as the last 2 posts. My favorite is "What kind of alcohol do you use?".
