(i ride the university bus to school daily and get chat with the morning driver)
so i tell him i'll get him one of my beers, and ask what he prefers. He says "import", so i give him options: something like Killians (my irish red ale) or budweiser (for lack of better description for my cream ale). He repeats "import", so i get him an irish red.

following day he says it was ok, but he prefers light beers and does not like 'ales', but it was ok. He asked me where I got it from. I said "what do you mean? Home." He asks if i brought it from my hometown, to which i reply that it came from my faucet, kettle, fermenter, and then finally my basement: my own brew. He says "darn, i just took it home and drank it warm, but didnt even drink it all. I would've chilled it had I known it was yours." So sad. Who drinks warm beer anyway? Needless to say, he gets no more beer. Didn't even recognize the effort.

Some days are just made for too many drinks with friends. Should he have drank 40s of Shlitz? I would rather drink 4 growlers of AB.
I doubt he bought 3-4 growlers of AB. I'm sure he confused it with Steele Reserve.

I think he was drinking Steel Reserve.
There's a difference between too many drinks, and pounding beers. You can savor a good beer and have too many, but I wouldn't swallow a rare cut prime rib whole then break the plate over my head. That's precisely what Schlitz is for.

Not saying that he was right, just that AB does come in a bottle that one who isn't a beer geek could confuse as a 40oz. As far as what is, or isn't pounding, I have seen a number of people get shiatfaced on very expensive booze, easier to feel self important when it costs more.

at my wifes recent 40th b-day party, one of her friends (who brought a case of mass produced lager over) drunkenly grabbed my sister-n-law and came up to me asking me why my beer had to be so hoppy..... she learned that word from my sis-n-law who is an avid beer drinker and likes a nice hoppy beer.

i looked at her and reminded myself that her knick-name was "dipsy-doodle" and explained that i personally enjoy a bitter ale much more than a kinda bland tasting lager aka swill and walked away.


i told my wife and she laughed

awesome. Someone asked a legit question and you pulled EAC.

This thread is funny, nut a lot of these posts just make you guys look like beer snobs and jerks. The bolded would have been a great answer in itself.

I'm all about the EAC - LOL! I tend to not talk about my beer unless someone is really interested and leading the conversation.

I have a friend who I am starting to teach how to brew. He doesn't know much about beer; never drank in college. I think he's got a taste for decent beer, but doesn't have the vocabulary. He's stuck on the word "hops", I think. Everything is hops.

He helped me build my setup (drilled out the kettle, etc.) so I gave him a thorough "tour" of the brewing process. I think he's getting it.

When I start to tell him about the different types of beer, he asks if the hops make the difference between ales and lagers.

I show him the grain and he asks "Is that the hops?"

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

A beer bar that I frequent quite a bit in Philly recently changed their menu. It seems they got tired of handing out a beer menu and having to tell you what got kicked that night etc so instead they now go with the chalkboard for the current list, and the menu has a style breakdown with estimated ABVs and flavor profiles etc. so you can make an educated choice.

The gf and I were enjoying some calamari and St. Louis Geuze when I overhear from the table behind us, "There are other kinds of lager?" Those of you from around Philly will understand.

Also at a recent dinner I was put in charge of the beverages, so I put out a nice Chilean Merlot, a decent Riesling, a Metheglyn from Redstone Meadery, Etienne Dupont Organic Bouche Brut Cider, and The Bruery's Saison de Lente. SWMBO's mother prompted so many head smacking moments that I can't name them all. The standout was while tasting the mead. "So this is the same as Ale right?"

Was at a party recently (sisters). In a rush so bought some Fullers ESB en route. Chatting away etc, a friend comes up and asks what is that? I give him a taste & he says" F*cking Gross man- you must have alcohol issues to be drinking that homemade sh*t".
BMC drinkers- It was store bought, one reason I dont give samples to friends. They cant appreciate what a hoppy beer tastes like
