Hey at least your friend's mom was trying! Im impressed that the lady did some reading so as to perpetuate a conversation on the matter.

Oh yeah, we actually had a good conversation about beer, and she seemed genuinely interested. She told me her favorites are porters and IPS's because she liked beers that taste like chocolate and/or dirt.

She was more interesting to talk to than the friend's boyfriend, who kept complaining that the Super Bowl commercials weren't funny enough.

you shoulda done a flying elbow drop in his wedding tackle when he wasn't paying attention. then look square in his eye and say in the most serious tone you can manage, "This shizzle just got funny. Fo' rizzle."

One of my buddies (a PBR loyalist) after trying my new session IPA (4%, 70 IBUs) "Wow, that is so strong. I don't think I can finish this, I need to drive home."

I've definitely noticed a lot of people, including people I love and respect, seem to think that strong tasting (or strong tasting to the) = more alcohol.

As I share my homebrew with more people I'm noticing this more and more. Most of my friends are beer geeks like me so they understand them but some of them only drink the American light lagers and don't know any better. My goal is to teach them and convert them all to the wonders of microbrews.

Might have just been his polite way of not wanting to finish it. I have turned down pbr using that same excuse.

I think some people really don't want their false beer "knowledge" challenged, because they like repeating certain things. For example, one guy I know was telling his buddy that each Guinness draught was like 2 Miller's. I told him that actually the Miller was higher in alcohol than the Guinness, and he just completely shrugged it off and I heard him repeat the same line about a half hour later.

Misinformation from beer commercials (i.e. "cold brewed" , "triple hopped") and folk legend ("Guinness used to have dead rats in their fermenters so now they toss steak in the kettle/fermenter") seem to have a stronger hold on the uninitiated than real people with knowledge and experience. "Guinness is super strong" and "You can chew Guinness" sadly are two that just won't go away.

Talk about a stupid. Not quite a comment, but my wife just implied her nails were more important than my 5 gallons of lager.

I was in the middle of racking a beer and our puppy was going nuts at the door to go out and relieve himself. I asked my wife if she could let him out, but her nails were drying and she basically shrugged me off! I was on my last gallon, but he couldn't hold it and pissed on the carpet. Now I have two messes to clean up tonight.
