Not really a comment, but a reaction. My friend's wife is a germaphobe. They came over for the first time and got a tour of the house to include the brew room. She looked at a sour, which actually looks pretty clear with almost no pellicle, and about got sick. Then I showed her some kombucha brewing in the kitchen cabinets paired with me taking a piece of fermenting sauerkraut out of its crock and eating it. She actually gagged and had to leave the room.

If we ever stop being a superpower it will be because of germophobes and The Real Housewives franchise. In that order. You mark my words.

Ok, so having finally had the time to read the thousand or so posted comments I hadn't had a chance to read through previously....

I can see having to define dark (or of the levels you mean by it when you say it) to a bartender of a restaurant not really known for their beer but in a pub? I'm sorry, if a bartender is that dense there's no way I'm spending the 7.50-12.00 it costs for much nicer beers. For cheap swill-like man-sodas? Not even reasonable. Besides (on a slightly different note), I kinda enjoy Amber Bock from Michelob occasionally and in a pinch plus it's actually pretty decent to make chili with. I also thought Bud Ale was tolerable and the bottles are kinda nice as they're the darkest glass bottles I've ever come across and block light better than any of the others I have.

Also, at the risk of borderline derailment... Can't an e-peen contest over who can chug the most Homebrew kind of be applicable to the stupidest comment about your homebrew thread?

And while I do agree that it's always a preferable to educate someone who says something silly or ignorant when given the chance... If their behavior continues to be unreasonable with a mocking or dismissive argumentative air then they deserve whatever abuse they are encouraging. IE, I don't go into to the Mechanic's work area and inform him how to fix my car... I answer his questions as best I can and defer to his wisdom as he clearly knows more than I do about the topic.




Speaking of which, and somewhat back on topic, I gave my cupcake Uncle one of the experimental beers we made recently with a high capsaicin(sp?) content and a moderate hop content. For some weird reason though the hop bitter and the pepper spiciness separated very quickly in the bottle even after pouring almost like a Black and Tan (not really sure why and I didn't find a lot of people posting similar experiences). He starting drinking it with his typical mocking air about how could I like such a "flowery" beer... Followed abruptly about 2/3rds of the way through it by him screaming all the way to the sink to bury his head under the sink. I'm sure Karma will come back to bite me on the butt someday but I'm still kicking myself for not having the foresight to tape that .

I had someone ask me "why would you want spice and bananas in a beer..."
my reply...
"So you wont drink it all... "

To be fair is an extreme @#&$. I so pity his "We're raising him to be non-violent!" son who takes repetitive beatings from the other kids and can't understand why.

This wasn't a comment on my beer, but it was stupid by someone who should know better, so I thought it kinda applies.

I went to a large beer store recently looking for some Jolly Pumpkin. I browsed for a while, because in my little town there is no selection. The clerk, who seemed nice enough, asked me if I needed help picking something out (I'm sure lots of people do, large selection can be intimidating if you don't know what you are doing). I said no thanks, I'm fine. I picked out a couple of sixers of stuff I can't get at home, but couldn't find the JP, which I knew they carry. I found the clerk and asked him if they had any JP, at which point he laughed at me and told me they only carry that stuff in the Fall. I tried to explain that JP was a brewery and not a pumpkin beer. That didn't change his answer. This went on for a minute, but seeing that he was getting agitated i dropped it. Well, maybe they stopped carrying it, I thought. I went to check out and the cashier asked me if I found everything. "No, actually. Do you guys still carry Jolly Pumpkin? Its a brewery, not a pumpkin beer". She looked it up and found plenty in stock. The clerk made his way over by now, and she asked him if he knew where it was. The clerk looked at me, "Ugh, I *told* you we don't carry that except in the Fall!" At this point the manager came over and asked the clerk what the problem was. He told the manager the story, at which point the manager started laughing at him. The manager turned to me and said "I'll show you where it is, we have plenty". Maybe the guy was having a bad day, maybe it was his first day. Either way, more than a little rude to get snippy when you don't understand what is being asked. Ah well, the JP tasted great anyway!

What a jerk. But hey, JP has been acquired so all is good!

And the manager seemed like a nice enough fellow.

Yup. Got the JP so it's ok by me. Snagged a Noel de Calabaza (which I've not had before, and now love) from a batch back in September 2010. It was nice and funky.
