"its not craft beer its crap beer"
my dad said "wow, i actually like this".... CRAZY
I try not to give BMC drinkers anything too crazy, so I don't really get absurd responses. Why give someone a BA stout when their palate hasn't developed? Throw them a wheat beer or a nice pils, lager, kolsch, and chances are they will like it and perhaps even check out more craft.
"Since when is that what beer tastes like?"
My son, a Keystone light guy, once drank my whole six of Torpedo and said "Really good beer Dad".
I got friends that will always tell me "I drink ales, you got any?" Then I ask what type of said ales do they drink, they look at me like I'm an idiot, say they drink all ales. I give them an IPA and they recoil in disgust. They then tell me they drink golden ales mainly.
"Free" often trumps "too hoppy" and all the other negative comments noted above, as well.
Mine friends, usually BMC drinkers, say "Thanks, here comes Stubs with the good stuff."
After drinking a few usually "This is the only kind of stuff I'm buying from now on." Then the next time I see them its straight back to Miller Lite.
"it's too bitter", "how can you drink that?"
The wife wont drink any, and just calls them "your expensive ass beers".
"I'm more of an ale drinker" when I bring stouts.
wife to husband looking at mix-a-six wall: Does IPA mean India Pale Ale? I don't know. It says IPA India Pale Ale. Hmm, I want to try the IPA but I don't want to look like an idiot. Hmm, IPA...let's ask the worker lady. Hey are IPAs India Pale Ale? Do you have them? Do we just buy one? Can you show me?
worker lady: Well we have lots of beers. Some are IPAs. I.. er.. I'll show you. Yes, here is one. Here is another. Um...
wife to husband: Honey, IPAs!! *giddy*
worker lady: :l *rolleyes*
I'm not to concerned with what they say, I'm just bummed that once they try to the stuff I bring it ends up going first...
"I'll stick with my $2 PBR thank you"
Gave my friend a smoked beer to try:
Her: "this doesn't taste like beer."
Me: "this is beer."
"a lager? sounds heavy"
"So, like, it gets you real messed up?" The beer was a bomber and was 10%abv and so I did the math for him real quick and explained its about 4 "regular beers".
When given a Stone Double Bastard, my friend said "tastes like ass". Guess he's tasted ass before
My old boss met up with me and one of my craft beer buddies at hop fest (a IPA/fresh hop tap take over at Brouwers to celebrate the hop harvest) and he consumed a Pliny (8% abv) and a Boneyard Hop Venom (10% abv) in about a 15 time span, while I still had half a glass of my first beer left. He was telling a story and then he stops mid sentence, stares at us with a concerned look, then says "wait a minute....how strong are these beers...? I feel a little too drunk already..." Then he proceeded to chug water. Hahahaha good thing he wasn't driving.
My favorite is the "it's way too strong" line, which is usually followed by a conversation of how they only drink beer "to get drunk".
I've heard this one countless times!! Always makes me smile.
A girl I work with told me she doesn't like hoppy beers like Blue Moon
motor oil, grass, cough medicine and turpentine are a few of the gems. My family still drinks it anyway..............as long as there is alcohol, turpentine is no problem to get down
I brought some Racer 5 with me to a family party last summer. My oldest sister, who drinks Bud Light exclusively, asked me if she could try it. I warned her that it tastes nothing like Bud Light, but she was really anxious to try it. She took one sip and said "Oh my God...do they call it Bear Republic Brewery because the beer they make tastes like bear piss?" I was laughing my ass off.
"Taste like Guinness" - Safari guide in Tanzania, after finishing my Kuhnhenn Bourbon Barrel Aged 4D.
Funny because I would expect donkey to taste a little meatier. Are you sure you didn't give him a rauchbier?
A friend of mine says of every IPA she's tried, "it's so spicy!"
My wife used to say that she doesn't like dark beer, until I had her try a coffee stout. I told her it was a new iced coffee drink and she (not surprisingly) loved it.
"Tastes like puddin' pops."
Mostly towards IPAs: "it's too bitter".
Another time I once gave a friend some fresh Weihenstephaner Hefeweiisbier; takes a sip, pause for a few seconds, takes another sip, "hey this is kind of good".
lol, and on top of it, people who probably drink dark coffee, right?
"Why would you pay this much money for something that tastes like fresh cut grass poured into a really good beer?"
Any IPA I let my two buds try
"Tastes like terpentine."
"You drink this?"/"How can you drink this?"
and my all time favorite...
"I don't know what you call this, but it's not beer!"
What the heck did she have between the two to even think one remotely tastes like the other? I hope she's not in the food business.
I AIN'T DRINKING NO STEAK SAUCE
Years ago i gave my die hard Busch Beer fan buddy a craft beer and his was reply "It tastes like fish" WTF??
It wasnt a craft beer persay, it was a Michelob Dark Bock beer which had more flavor than most readily available beers at the time.
Had a friend who typically drinks Natural Light say Sierra Nevada Stout was " fuckin' nasty " . Another friend tried a Two Hearted Ale, Claimed to like it, I gave him a bottle, He took two sips then opened up a Bud Light Lime. I let another buddy of mine try a Founders Harvest Ale and he said it was a " Decent IPA ". Mind you, The only beers I've ever seen him drink are Bud Light Platinum and Corona.
dark beer = high gravity
"tastes like leaves & twigs"
"this beer is for F*****s"
"Tar in jar, again eh?"
Or more recently,
Sittin' drinking a Vanilla Porter @ the bar buddy sits down "What's that syrup your drinking?"
