This evening I went to a small farm-town bar that has a micro brewery. They had three micro-beers on tap;
  • Bock
  • Red Ale
  • Wheat
I order the "Red Ale". It comes back really deep red, maybe just dark. I can't tell the bar is dark. I'm at a table. The chairs at the table are hard and lumpy and not all that comfy for enjoying a beer after a 13 hr day.

I order my dinner and tell the waiter I'm moving to the bar. I get my food eat it all down as I am starving. Finish my beer. Then I order another "Red Ale".....

I'm not paying attention during the pour, but my "Red Ale" is a solid red. I'm like OK, I must have gotten the bock before. Not a big deal.

I order my 3rd.... The barkeep pulls the bock tap. I'm like, "Hey I want a red!" He's like "Yah I know...." Then he shuts off the tap when the glass is 1/3 full. He slides down to the "Miller Lite" and tops it off!!!!!

I'm like WTF is that????? He' like. That's how we make them.

He asks if I still want it, I'm yah Ok and I laugh it off (EAC attititude is barely suppressed - Think big Harley-Dude, prolly not worth pissin' off).

He said "We are out of Red Ale right now so that's how we have to make them."

I drink it down then say, OK I'd like to try the wheat.

He goes we are out of that too.

I guess you can't pass off a wheat mixing bock with some other beer.

Not a dumbass bartender, a dumbass brewpub. They have 3 beers and they are out of two? That brewer needs a wake up call.

I take it quality control isn't one of their strong points.

Tops it off!!! lol I bet you were the only one that noticed that. But to make that even better, everyone else that ordered the red was paying the usually price and only getting a 1/3 of a micro bock, and were none the smarter to what was going on. I love that.

I'd say both. Why can't they erase the chaulk board or say we are out of that beer.

They have all of the New Belgium beers, and several other micros from what I could see from the bar.

If they where not out of the wheat, I'd of asked for a weizenbock!!!!

Big Harley dude or not, I don't think I would have been as kind if someone did that to my beer, but then again I'm almost 6'6", so I can get away with more than some people can.
