Very similar at my house.
Father in law asks

"Why are you always making more dark beer?" (I havent made a dark beer since my Stout last may, he is reffering to either an amber ale (which is red when I make it) or the honey blonde, or the Oktoberfest)


Still cannot understand how he can classify this as "Dark Beer"

Best Comment Ever...from my roommates girlfriend
While Brewing IPA she says "It smells like Body odor in here"
Me: your crazy
her:.it doesnt smell right
Me: You dont know what your talking about

After adding the total 6 ounces of hops
Her: "It smells like feet in here, its disgusting"
Me: "you have the most f*ed up orfactory senses known to man"

One friend calls my homebrew "that 90 weight you drink". He says "tastes great but it is so heavy" no matter what style it is. He likes Corona with lots of salt.

My wife learned a long time ago that color doesnt indicate much.

She likes to try them all now.

I tried to talk a friend of mine who raises chickens, goats, cattle, horses, pigs. Milks the Goats and Cattle and makes cheese to get into home brew.
"I dont like dark beers"
UGH!


Also now I am considered a Beer snob if I dont want to waste my $ or time on a Budlight.

Same the f#%k here.. pisses me off..

The other day I got a newcastle (the only good beer at the resturant)

the sever brought it to me almost frozen in a bottle.. and that was it.

I asked for a glass, seeing that their water glasses were pint mixing glasses.

She said, "you want a frozen mug?"

Nope, just a normal glass like that one"

Her: you sure?

Me: yes.

Then i had to warm my beer up from freezing temps, just so i could taste the damn thing.. and all the while, my friends are laughing at me..

kills me

This one is pretty good. ( Served my BIL a Pale Ale or an American Wheat)

BIL: "How did you get the alcohol into this? Did you add something like gin or vodka?"

Me: "No you ferment it like wine, add yeast and it makes the alcohol and carbonation."

About 30 days after this...He later bought a homebrew kit, made it, a week later he dumped it all out because he said it tasted nasty. He drank a glass right from the primary!!!

BTW - He hasn't brewed since then two xmases ago.

That may be one of saddest HB stories I've ever heard. I hope I don't offend you but I think your BIL may be an idiot.
