Yesterday I stopped by a restaurant that my parents like to get a gift certificate for them. While waiting at the bar for the owner to fill it out, I noticed that the restaurant has a beer named after it. I ask about it, and the lady is nice enough to give me a sample while she runs my credit card.

I look at it, give it a sniff and a taste, and say, "Sort of an amber...?" figuring she'll tell me what the brewery that makes it for them calls it.

She responds that they describe it as "Like Guinness" to most of their customers.

"This is nothing like Guinness," I exclaimed back.

"I know, but you know more about beer than most of our customers."

So I guess that would count as lots of stupid comments on their beer? It was a light reddish brown and crystal clear!

The one that drives me nuts is whenever a friend of mine sees me drinking a dark beer he says "Man...That's too thick for me. You can stand a knife up in that."

"It is good!Like Guinness!!"

Firstly I HATE guinness. Secondly, that stout you are sipping is about 40 times as complex as guinness and carbed with good ol CO2.

Well I think that's just you nitpicking and hating Guinness, not necessarily a stupid comment on your beer. At least he knew it was a stout.

What if Guinness is the only beer he's ever truly enjoyed? Makes the comment at lot better

Not that bad but kinda funny:

The dad of a co-worker of my wife found out we brew and really wanted to try one. I didn't want to give him something crappy or have an off-flavor to scare him off of homebrew but I wanted to give him something unique. So I chose a Belgian. It's 10% ABV, very malty, lots of esters and absolutely no hop flavor or aroma. (It's sort of like piraat or scaldis.) He tried it, said it was good but somewhat hoppy. I just rolled with the comment because I knew he didn't know what the esters were (or hops, for that matter) and was trying to articulate it as best he could. He enjoyed it, thanked us and then tried to play with the dog. He was obviously buzzed.

My cousin kept saying "tastes like chocolate" to all of my beers. Bock, smoked porter, barrel aged stout. It all tasted like chocolate.

I don't know, sounds like she knew what she was talking about but also knew that most customers wouldn't. More like she was trying to avoid stupid comments on their beer

In my experience, most people who compare any beer to Guinness are wrong. This is even true for most commercially available stouts.

Lol. You have a point, but this particular person was guilty of countless stupid comments, so she was predestined.
