Love me some Wodford!
Ahhhhh... The down falls of drinking beer and THEN writing about it. Thanks for the correction
I've seen a lot of places that list they carry "Widmere." I've heard it pronounced that way a lot too. I don't understand what's so hard about "Widmer."
I once saw "Mongo" from Port Brewing Company listed as "Mango"... thought it was acutaly somewhat appropriate...
I like when restaurants have a section or heading that says "Belgium Beers" instead of Belgian.
Whenever I'm at a restaurant and the server rambles out the selection, and ends it with "hefeweizen". Sorry, but hefeweizen and Widmer are two completely different words.

Two Brothers Cane & Ebel is often misspelled Cain. One of my favorite joints has had it spelled wrong for four years! I mentioned the error to various mgmt types but gave up long ago.
Not a misspelling, but I once saw Old Rasputin described as a "Russian River Imperial Stout." Uhh....
Another "not a misspelling but..."
...went to a restaurant in Asheville, NC and the menu referred to Guinness as "the original Imperial Stout."
And I thought people in that city knew their beer.
Thank God there isn't a beer called Onomatopoeia Ale.
we have a local crap bar that lists about 6 offerings from New Belgium as Fat Tire...
"Fat Tire Ranger IPA"
"Fat Tire Skinny Dip"
and for Fat Tire it just says Fat Tire.
Heavy Seas Lose Canon IPA. Misspelling of two words, come on now!
Maybe they lost the authoritative scriptures?
Had to be that. As much as I like Loose Cannon, I don't think it is Biblical...
Never heard of the beer but that seems like a fair mistake. Damn does it look like beard.
I can personally admit to butchering Jai Alai. Jay a-lay is what I called it when I first asked a store clerk if they had any. Not a shining moment for me.
Flat Tire at a Mexican restaurant I go to.
Not a misspelling, but a server once told me that one of the taps just got switched to Jack's Abby Harmonious Union. I got it, but I think I prefer Hoponius Union. Tickers gotta tick...
The worst I've noticed is a waitress telling me the restaurant I was eating at had Omega White on tap. Curious, I ordered one and discovered that it was Ommegang Witte.
The local flying saucer has Weihenstephaner Hefe but it's really the Kristallweiss. Not a big deal really (even though I wish they'd put the Hefe up instead) but I was explaining to someone the difference and the server insisted it was the Hefe and not the Kristallweiss...I can tell the difference between a clear and hazy beer thank you miss now run along.
