Alright, so my buddies wife is out of town for a few weeks, it's rainy, and we decided to have him over for supper to get him out of the house. This guys favorite beers are Racer 5 and Hop Stoopid. He brews with me! He has two kits sitting in my garage! I had bottled some of my Citra pale ale into some Corona Especial 32's, and I got one out and poured us each a pint from it. He takes a pungent, palate obliterating sip from his glass and says "I love this Corona! I used to get these all the time!". My wife caught on real quick and we exchanged a glance. Neither of us said a word. Now I am wondering if it's just the power of the placebo, or if I've been wasting really good beer on this guy!

I handed someone a Canadian Pale Ale once and she said "sorry I don't like dark beer", I replied that it was "ok".

Sounds like he just likes the beer and doesn't quite remember what Corona actually tastes like.

I'm hoping you're right. It was still funny though. For 2.99 a quart I'd be buying it all day long if it tasted like that.

It's the power of suggestion taking part on an open mind.

I'm not so certain it works on everyone. When I was a kid I used to work at a coffee shop (damn seniors always in a rush to sit and do nothing in the food court). anyways.

Sometimes things would get busy and you've give someone Irish cream instead of whatever flavoured coffee they ordered. They'd come back in 5 minutes swearing that you put drain-o in their coffee. There was nothing wrong with the coffee, it's just they completely rejected it because it was inconsistent with what they were expecting. And thus, they freaked.

My favorite is when people say, "Its like a *insert beer description*-er New Castle."

Also I love when peoole say they can really taste something that just isn't there.

Finally I just love telling people the wrong ABV% and watch them "frunk" the whole night. Frunk was our high school term for people who would exagerate being hammered.

Huh.. Reminds me of the "Pretendica" that some of the freshmen kids thought they got high off of.

my neighbor loves my brew, and especially dark brews. i usually have jamil's dark mild (3.7%) on tap. i mess with his head every time telling him it's strong and to be careful. he usually drinks shiner bock when not drinking mine. i always laugh when he staggers off after drinking 3 or 4 of mine he can drink shiner bock nonstop for hours

Today I allowed my boss to sample an Apple pie ale today.
After he drank a small cup of the stuff he said " That's really good but I'm mosrly into lagers and ales".
