My mom's a beer snob and I was lucky enough to get a keg of their organic amber for my high school graduation party. I must admit, none of the kids there wanted to drink it, maybe that's why she got it!

I was at a party last night with good friends. One of whom will not drink anything (I mean anything) except a standard Budweiser.

He'd heard I've been brewing for a while and wanted to try something I'd brought (I always haul a rolling cooler of HB with me to parties).

I decided to give him a basic English Pale Ale (Standard Bitters) because it was the mildest, least hoppy beer I'd brought. Now here's a guy who refers to Dos Equis is one of those "heavy" beers. Once I gave him a bit of a recipe rundown on the EPA and told him what to expect in up front taste, aroma and lingering bitterness, he took a slow swig. Took another. One more sip and and proclaimed that it was not only good...it was damn good beer.

We proceeded to share three more 22 ouncers of the EPA and he was thoroughly surprised/impressed. He eventually got to singing the praises to everyone else at the party and making a big deal of it.

Ironically it was less a surprise to him that he was enjoying a homebrew, as he was enjoying a beer that was the color of a penny. He never imagined he could drink something "dark" like that and enjoy it.

I consider the night a success.

...though I did achieve a big "fail" when I asked him to try my smoked porter...

The girlfriend of a buddy of mine took a glass of my homebrew and started siping on it. She said "This is REALLY good... It won't make me drunk will it?"

Then, on a big family camping trip I was hanging out at another campsite and my nieces boyfriend offered me a can of Budwieser. It was getting pretty hot and close to beer time anyway... And my beer was a couple of hundred feet away, so I took one.

My 18 year old son said "You aren't really going to drink that are you?"

That's probably the only BMC beer I've had in 2 years.

My dad keeps making this comment about the Hot Chocolate Stout I gave him... Saying he should use it to make his "venison in guinness" recipe.

Uh, Dad...I don't think that's such a great idea. You should probably taste it first.

I only give my beers to people who I know will appreciate them. My BF since elementary school drank like 5 of my heavy-wisse's one night

him: "Dood, I'm f**ked up"
me: "that was the goal"

I brought 2 gallons of apfelwine to a party

them: "Wow! this is good! did you put vodka in this?"
me: "no, but I put honey in it"
them: "It's not sweet at all"
me: "the yeast fermented it out into alcohol"
them: "thats gross" *puts drink down"

ignorance is bliss.

Ah, it's all dark, so what's the difference?
