You should have told them to smoke it.

A lot of BMC types are so wound up about "bitter beer" that they just can't take anything hoppy.
Some of the same folks are the ones that drink sludgey bottom-of-the-pot coffee and chew the grounds, but suddenly they turn into little girls at the idea of a properly hopped brew.

Mmmm. I love hoppy beers AND sludgy bottom-of-the-pot been sitting all day coffee. It's what's getting me through college.

The two drunks beside me, upon receiving a handful of grain, asked, "So is this the hops?"

Seriously? I can understand not being able to recognize hops, but you should recognize that you've just been handed a grain.

When they did hand out the hops (seriously, he had a big bag full of whole centennial hops and just started handing out handfuls; I considered put them in my pocket) the guys asked if they could eat those. I really wanted to see that.
This presupposes that the person knows that hops AREN'T a grain. I have known intelligent people who were uneducated about beer and asked me if they were a type of grain, some other type of plant life or something else altogether.

As to the eating hops thing... heheh... One pub that I brewed for had a server who liked to talk, a lot, and he knew something about everything... I was busy one day and he was pestering me asking questions that I didn't have time to answer. What I was doing at that very moment was measuring hops for the day's two brews... not a time to be distracted. He made a comment about the hop pellets, something about he liked the taste of hops and could you actually eat them outside the beer... heheh wicked wheels turn fast... "sure," I said popping a Chinook pellet into my mouth. I chipmunked it and pretended to chew. "Here, try some..." I put three or four more of the Chinook pellets into his hand, my assistant was grinning like a opossum. The server popped those pellets into his mouth and began chewing like crazy... in about 3 seconds he was bending over the trash can, gagging and spitting... My assistant and I were literally doubled over laughing. Kid was a good sport about it though, once the wretching stopped, he got kind of red faced, " I guess I had that coming... I won't bother you when you're busy..."

I've never tried eating hops... And since I'm not one to take anyone's word for anything, I'll have to take a nibble
