What is the absolutely stupidest thing anyone has said to you concerning how your beer tastes?

I gave some to my chiropractor, somehow expecting a somewhat intelligent comment, since he appears to be a somewhat intelligent person.

He said, "Wow, that stuff had quite a kick!"



My SWMBO, (love her to death), always takes her first taste of something new, and says, "Kind of heavy!"

DUH

Funny - I've had both of those comments too. I don't know if they're "stupid" comments, just people trying to describe what they're tasting without the correct words to describe what they like or don't like.

I get "dark" quite a bit too. Most of my beers aren't dark at all, but I guess anything that isn't piss-yellow and fizzy is "dark".

About a superhopped IPA:
"Wow, you really used a lot of holiday spices!"

About a MALTY Scottish ale:
"This is REALLY hoppy! Good thing...I love hops!"

About anything darker than BMC (from the same guy more than once):
"This is supposed to be like Guinness, huh?"

About ALL of my beer (from a BMC-sworn friend);
"This is good beer...for someone else."

"You should have added a couple more pounds of 2-row & boosted the gravity."

It's a freak'n Schwartzbier, not an RIS!

SWMBO, whenever I pour myself a Bock or Brown Ale:

"Looks like motor oil." (she doesn't like beer)


My BIL when I handed him a homebrew for the first time:

"Is this going to give me the sh!ts??":rolleyes:

My BIL always he says he loves it. Even my piss poor first Mr. Beer batch. This is unfortunate because other than myself he drinks the most. I could really use an honest opinion from time to time.

68 year old Filipino Mother in law:
"It's such a waste to leave beer in the bottom of the bottle like that. Can't you just drink it? Or filter it out like Budweiser?"

40 year old drinking buddy:
"Leave some in the bottle? F that, ill chew that crap if I have to"


Sidenote:
At the end of the night, in a complete drunked stupor, he did in fact, "chew that crap". He emptied all the bottles (about 15-20) into one large glass and drank/chewed all of our sediment.

Upon trying my RIS
"Wow it really tastes a lot like Guinness"

Giving a Fat Tire clone that I had named Fat Tired and Lazy to a friends girlfriend, and upon her learning the name:
"Wait! why'd you give me THIS one?"

The most common one I get is "I don't like dark beers". Second most common is "You made this?"

Here's my favorite. You gotta love it when the hard core BMC drinkers ask for a sample:

"No, you won't like it."
"Please, please," they say.
"Seriously, no," I reply, "You really won't like it. Trust me"
The begging continues, and finally wins.
Then comes the expected:
"Dude, this suuucks! How can you drink this ****e? It's not even beer!"

I think the only reason they try it is so they can tell you they don't like it.

Of all the people I've told I homebrew, 90% have asked me if it was legal, 80% have made a moonshine reference, and 100% of people that have seen my setup have either asked me if it was dangerous, if something could explode, or made a meth "joke". I think they see all the thermometers and assume they're pressure gauges or something......

People are silly.

I gave some of my first ever batch to my friend, a Bud Light Only drinker. (Should have known better huh?)

Her response: "It's pretty good. I mean, it's no Bud Light, but it's good."

She doesn't get any more beer.

The in-laws tried my first batch and said "It was good. It was carbonated." Maybe they drink flat beer a lot?

I was trying to have a relaxing, quiet moment at my local brew pub when this guy interrupted my solitude and kept trying to engage in some mundane conversation so I turned the subject to one of my favorites, homebrewing.
Me: "I make my own beer and it's every bit as good or better than some of the brews here, or so my friends tell me."
Idiot: "Yeah but you can't make something as good as Budweiser, can you?"
WTF!!!

From a male friend of my wifes: "You know, I tried this expecting it to taste like $#!T! But this is really good. I wanted to razz you but you gotta show me how to do this for myself!"

On a related note, we were at a brew pub in Hermann MO. during Octoberfest, a guy walks in and YELLS "They don't even have AMERICAN beer here! Where's the AMERICAN beer!?! I want a Miller Lite!"

People!!

Upon offering a dunkel . . .

"No, thanks. I only drink lagers"
"It is a lager. It's a German style that's more on the sweet side. Give it a shot."
"No, thanks. I mean, I only drink lagers."


Upon offering my American Brownish/Reddish thing . . .

"That's great! Can I drink a whole one, or will it get me drunk?"

Lol and Lol :D

Hmm I dunno if I have recieved any stupid comments. I am fortunate that my family and friends all like good beer so they have at least a good background. I dunno what my reaction would be to someone who thinks a Lager is another name for a piss yellow skunk in a bottle :p
