I had 3 Coors drinkers tell me the other day after drinking Irish Red "it must be pretty weak, I can't even taste the alcohol". This is beer...not Scotch people!

That's because they think "strong" should taste like Camo 900...which is vile stuff IMO.

They just need to learn that the good high gravity brews don't taste like high gravity brews.

Gave my mom a bottle a Brown Mild that is anywhere from 3.25-3.75 ABV (wind blew my hydro right off the grills side tray) and she said "It's too strong". I'm going to brew her a Kolsch so she thinks it's weak because of its color. Then I'm going to switch it with an IPA and watch her pucker.

not about my brew but still funny...

i had a waiter trying to tell me that he thought Sam Adams "Adds hops just for the sake of adding more hops"

yeah because hops are so cheap, why not just throw some more in.

I wouldn't necessarily disagree with that guy. I think a lot of their beers are over hopped for the style.

I disagree. Its obvious the waiter didn't know what they were talking about with regard to SA and hops.

I hate when people spout of crap they know nothing about but act as an authority on the matter. Its make me want to be a royal a$$hole to them. I take pleasure in being an a$$hole at times!

That said I view opinions and speculation quite differently. Its not a matter of authority.

Her: This is good, what kind of beer is it?
Me: It's called a cream ale.
Her: Yeah, you can really taste the cream.

I brought a bomber of Stone RIS over to a bbq last weekend to introduce some newly 21 folks to how dark a beer really can be. I figured, hey, let's not ease these people in...toss them in the deep end and get some reactions.

"This tastes like Guinness!"

I've found 2 major things that I feel many homebrewers and micro fans in general tend to forget...

1) Just because someone doesn't drink beer doesn't mean that they need to start off with a Blonde Ale or Mild. My Fiance doesn't like most of the beers I buy or have made, but she loves a good porter (The bourbon porter at the Ren Faire in PA was by far her favorite beer ever)

2) To us (with acclimated palates), the difference between a german lager and and a pale ale may be STRIKING, but to the uninitiated they can't tell. Even with a wider style gap, let's face it....beer is composed of the same basic ingredients. You may be able to see the differences between the maltiness and hoppiness of an English Mild and an American Stout...but to them they're still tasting Malted barley, hops, and yeast. Even an English Mild is a huge leap in flavor from a BMC.

my 2 cents
