My brother, who I always looked up to, and thought liked beer, claims that Mexican beer is the best beer in the world. He is talking about Corona. Just last week end he was drinking Heineken and now claims thats the best beer. When I tried to explain to him that the skunky flavor he is tasting is because it is skunked and that I have heard it doesnt have the flavor in its home country he says "I know, good stuff!" He lives in Florida so he has yet to taste any of my brews since he wont come to Wyoming.

I took 2 growlers of my brews to Oklahoma with me last summer, a Black Ale and a Toucan Stout. Dad took 1 sip of my Black and gagged. I was so disappointed in him. But he drinks Natty Light every day. My nephew on the other hand, he is 32 so dont worry, loved both of them but really loved the Black Ale!

Not really a comment on my beer but....I used to brew with a couple buddies. One of them literally did nothing but sit around and drink. One day he said, "why does it take so long? I remember it only used to take an hour". I said "you mean back when we started brewing? Those were kits, we do all grain batches now". He said..."oh....whats the difference?". I brew by myself now.

I would answer that question "no, but why would I want to?"
I ran into the same situation, needless to say, that friend is no longer offered beer at my house. And, not that anyone would want to, but from what I understand, it's very hard to reproduce those types of beer (bud/coors/miller light).

If you go to his house for a burger cookout, ask him if he can make your burger just like McDonald's.

I want one just like a buck double. Those buns don't look soggy enough. That looks like real cheese.

In the grocery store yesterday I saw this beautiful little scene.

Man: *grabs case of bud platinum*
Woman: "Don't get that; I can't drink it!"
Me: (thinking "Good for her, she wants some good beer")
Woman: "It's too strong for me."

I checked. It's 6%.

Not really a stupid comment. Look through the BJCP style guidelines, many styles max out for alcohol at under 6%. We tend to develop terrific alcohol tolerance drinking homebrew and 8% IPAs, but for most people who are drinking 4.0% light lagers, 6% is a considerable jump.

My brother last night trying my new stout: "This is disgusting"
Me: "Ok. Let me get you a Guinness" (I don't have guinness in the house. I actually poured him another of the exact same home brew stout)
Brother: "See? now this is a good beer"
