    Poured some Heady Topper in a glass for my pops last weekend and he said, "This tastes kinda like Shock Top!"
    I facepalmed.
    Last night on his birthday, I poured him a bottle of Zombie Dust and he goes: "This tastes like Heady Topper?"

    So the aristocratic " Killian's is the best beer ever " guy Made another appearance at my buddies house a few nights ago. He was drinking a Killian's as usual and he stated that " He was in the mood for an IPA ". I had a few Triomphe's with me, So I gave him one. For some reason, He elected to shotgun it. He then continued to tell me about how he would much rather eat black rotten banana's and that it was the wrong kind of IPA. So I asked him what type of IPA he wanted me to give him, To which he replied " A Black Crown ".

    I gave him a nice long uhhhh, I guess you could say " explanation " about how Black Crown is the furthest thing from an IPA and that he would no longer be wasting any of my beer ever again. He then demanded that I compare it to a Killian's. As soon as he handed me the bottle I opened, Took a drink, And said " Mmmmm, Rusty piss ". I poured it down the drain, then left without saying another word.

    My wife, though definitely a drinker of quality beer hasn't developed a taste for much of anything over around 8%. Every time I give her a sip of something like Olde School, BCBS or the like, she generally insists that I don't actually enjoy it.

    Brought a 6er of Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' to work the other day to share with everyone.

    I received such comments as:
    "Why don't you get me a beer that actually tastes like a beer." and
    "That's a bad beer, it's bitter."

    It was then followed by 3 drainpours.

    A friend of mine seemed insulted that I offered him a Sam Adams Oktoberfest. He said, "I only drink pbr because it tastes like American soldiers marching down my throat. It's way better than your fancy import beer." I just face palmed.

    I have a solution to everyone in this thread who ends up losing their beers to people who drink pisswater and/or drainpour the good stuff: any time you get the urge to offer your delicious beer to the unappreciative just stop, retract the offer, and send the delicious beer to me. I PROMISE you, I WILL drink the whole thing and enjoy it.

    Shoulda said, "You like American soldiers in your throat?"
  15. This past weekend went out to a nice brewpub with a decent variety of brews that they make themselves. They had their standard lager, a bock, standard ale, strong ale, cream stout, cream ale, and cask-conditioned bitter. My dad orders a Bud on tap (which they don't have) and had to settle for a Coors bottle. Then when my cousin saw my cream stout (which was fairly sweet as far as cream stouts go), he went "I don't like dark beer. They're too bitter".

    That last one made my brain hurt. I tried to explain how that was like saying "I like red cars. They go faster", but was interupted.

    This wasn't a friend but a guy came into where I work today and asked what a DIPA (he pronounced it "deepa") was and was only interested in it because the brewery's name was the same as his last name.

    When I was studying abroad in Germany, it was SURPRISINGLY hard to get my female friends to drink beer. After coaxing them for awhile I got them all interested in Erdinger/Franziskaner/Weihenstephaner hefes. The one even moved on to trying dunkels and other beers!
    I got a lot of "This isn't going to be dark is it? I hate dark beers!" Once they got it, the one then tried to compare it to Bud or something. I made her stop talking.

    Just the other day while visiting my mom I had stopped and got a create your own sixer and a bottle of La Terrible. She kept referring to them as "wine" because they were dark in color. "How's your wine?" was what she asked me every time I drank one.

  20. "I don't drink dark beer" is the most heard, regardless if what I'm offering is dark or not, haha. Usually I just get laughed at for 'wasting' money on beer.

    My dad was afraid to bring good beer to my family thanksgiving, where all my relatives are BMCs. He decided to swing by a liquor store and pickup a 6-pack of his "good beer" anyway. He showed up to my aunt's with Killian's Red.

    Semi-related, when the widemouth can came out & when Miller put out the vortex bottle, I showed my friends this thing called a pint glass, then explained & demonstrated the chuggability. Even without clever marketing, a logo & minimal sex appeal, I converted a few. Yeah not really.

    ;) I just had a conversation with someone about that. Funny thing..Guinness Draught (the Staple..most folks are talking of) is Actually kind of a "Light" brew -- weighing in @ under 4.5%

    Tell them Guiness has less calories than a Michelob Ultra. Their head will explode.

    Hold your nose and try to talk in the voice of a five year with the strongest southern accent you ever heard and say, "You got anymore of that grapefruit beer?" my friend after giving him his first Ruination. He's a Bush light/ Natty light drinker but now loves IPA's as long as they are mine.

    It's not a craft at ALL, but I brought a 12 pack of Newcastle to a friend's birthday (it's a cheapie I can drink to get drunk on). Someone else grabbed one out of the cooler and goes "Oh my god, is this MOONSHINE? It's so strong!"

  31. Which is always drag, when it explodes over misinformation ;)

    Most sources have Guinness Draught with 125 calories for 12 oz., and the 12 oz. bottle Michelob Ultra's label says 95 calories.

    I read this somewhere or heard it at a conference. It may have been Bud Light, but I thought it was Michelob Ultra. Are you sure the information wasn't for the Guinness Draft can (16oz.)?

    Friend of mine does that all the time. She tries to like beer but just refers to everything as hoppy because she doesn't know any other beer terms. It's brutal.

  37. convinced my friend to buy a sixer of two hearted to which he said "this is the most dog shit tasting thing ive ever drank". last time i was at his house he had a Woodchuck sampler. Also, his dad drank the other 5 in one night and said "this is the only IPA i've had that i liked" What his dad says isnt funny what's funny is his dad drank all of them cause he couldnt deal.
