That's not too bad, it's just a slight confusion on his part. Anchor does have a spiced "holy day" beer.

So, how do you guys answer the "how do you make beer?" question? If I haven't had much homebrew yet that night I go into all-grain vs. extract and boiling hops. If I have had quite a few I go "you throw all the **** in the pot, boil it, add some yeast, and wait!"

Total agree with you - accept when I am sober and I start a diatribe on AG vs. PM vs. Extract - and see their eyes gloss over - then I just finish quickly with "boil , hops, yeast - wait!"

i say, you soak grains in hot water for a while, then boil the liquid adding hops from time to time then put it in a container with yeast and let it sit a few weeks.

On a long road trip I had my mother help me study for the BJCP exam. She kept butchering the pronunciation of diacytal, so I told her to just say "butter" and I would know what she meant. Evidently this intrigued her and she wanted to know what diacytal really was. Recap of the general conversation:

Me: I's an off flavor that can develop in beer, tastes like butter or butterscotch.
Mom: Really, that sounds tasty.
Me: It's not, it's an off flavor, it's not supposed to be in the beer.
Mom: But I like butterscotch.
Me: I like butterscotch too, just not in my beer.
Mom: Could you brew a beer with di-a-c-y-a-t....."butter" in it (trying to mimic her continued mispronunciation, which was awesome)
Me: Why would I want to do that?
Mom: Because I like butterscotch.
HWMBO (my hubby and co-brewer also in the car): *laughing hysterically*

Gotta love mom, took her to the GABF and pointed out Jim Koch to her, saying "That's the guy who owns Sam Adams." He started to walk away as I was doing this and she decided she wanted her picture with him so she went running after him yelling "Mr. Adams, Mr. Adams, come back Mr. Adams!"

That is pure awesome in a can. Did he laugh his ass off? I would have been rolling. I think I like your mom.

Everything about that story is hilarious!

Mom: What did you do for your birthday?
Me: Theresa (my wife) took me to go get a homebrew kit so I could start brewing my own beer.
Mom: I didn't know that was legal. How much beer are you going to make?
Me: Each batch will be about 5 gallons.
Mom: Are you an alcoholic?
