It's funny, but I wouldn't call it stupid A lot of us learn by reading.

Buddy's SWMBO sees me opening a can of Dale's Pale Ale

Her: WTF is that?
Me: it's a bad ass PA from Colorado.
Her: I don't like ales.
Me: Why not?
Her: They have a taste to them...
Me: ...
Her: *sips her Blue Moon*
Me: You're drinking an ale.
Her: *cocks head like a dachshund*

It's like when I brought some Yuengling to a football game tailgate a few years back. Everyone else was drinking bud light or something. We were playing this drinking game and my friends girlfriend looked at me and said
"I can't believe you are playing this with a LAGER!"
I looked at her drinking a bud light and said
"you're playing with a lager too"
She just gave me a funny look.

The general beer drinking public doesn't know WTF and ale or lager really is; they just hear those terms in advertising, and associate them with beers that they either like or don't like.

As per my earlier entry to this thread:

2. [when I was bartending at a microbrewery]
Guy: [staring at the menu board for several minutes] You guys got any ales?
Me: they're all ales.
Guy: are they all the same beer?
(I should add that each beer name ended with "Ale" e.g. Redjacket Amber Ale, Hilde's Brown Ale, etc.)
It isn't stupid to be unaware of the difference, but it is stupid to pretend to know what you're talking about (when you don't) around people who do. They will catch you, and probably correct you, then go post about it on HBT...

I told him I was going to name the beer 'Dad's Medicine' as a joke. Before trying it he said, that's appropriate given that if you brewed it in your basement it must taste like cough sirup." After hearing that I'm not sure why I gave him one....

I gave my father-in-law a taste of Yuri's Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale. It's so pumpkiny it fills your mouth with spice and convinces you October is tomorrow.

He said, "It's too cidery."

Hahahaha! It's cool, more for me!

Was he Brazilian? That is how they say "IPA" in Brazilian Portuguese. Took me a while to figure out what they were talking about but one sip made it clear.

Scene at beer store w/friend on vacation:

Me: Hey, let's try this local cream ale
Him: Oh man, no way...I can't stand dark beers.
Me: ??
Him: You know, like milk stouts.
Me: I see. They're in no way related. It's a very light beer.
Him: Still, I'm lactose intolerant
Me: Right. Okay. How about a blonde instead (reaching for the same beer)
Him: Great! I love lagers.
Me: We should do this more often.

Nope, American through and through, just a committed bud light drinker. I'm working on him though.
