This. Since when did it become a sign of good manners and politeness to eat or drink something you don't like? And, as a host, since when did it become OK to get offended because a guest didn't wish to eat or drink something you offered? Seems to me, if you're the host, you want your guests to enjoy themselves. If you know they're forcing themselves to eat or drink something just to avoid hurting your feelings, would you really want them to do that? And when the eff did all the manly man beer drinkers get so sensitive that they throw hissy fits over someone's disinterest in drinking a style of beer that's offered? "What!? You won't drink that beer!? I'll bet you don't like the tablecloth and napkin combination either! And I spent so much time planning this beer-and-TV evening!! Oh why do I even bother!!?"
