    These are funny.
    Someone grabbed a Palate Wrecker from me and after one sip yelled out "oh gross what the hell is this?"

    Was at a bar with a craft drinking buddy and met up with one of his BMC friends. We ordered a bomber of Pumking, let the BMC friend try it and he said... "This doesn't taste like beer"... "I hate dark beers but this is pretty good"

    Hard to believe some people think anything other than the yellow fizzy stuff is dark. Couldn't imagine what he'd say if I handed him a stout.

    Friend tried a Stone Ruination IPA, took a sip and stated very clearly "This is way too sour"

    So I've had a few instances in the last few months that made me come close to pulling out my hair. First, a friend was making chilli and used a half bottle of BCBS that was about 2 years old, kept in the fridge the whole time...buy that isn't the painful part. She took a sip, thought it was gross, and drainpoured it, all about 30 seconds before I walked in the door.

    Then, another friend just last weekend was telling me how horrible it was at his brothers house over Christmas. All he had was Surly Smoke, Heady Topper, and Masala Mamma that he was trying to get rid of before moving, and this yahoo potted it out!

    Anyone else have horror stories?

    does the buffalo wild wings commercial about the homebrewer count as tragic?

    nothing crazy, but my girlfriend's punk ass college aged brother took a bottle of allagash black and an ovila out of their fridge to a house party and ended up telling her the next day how disgusting they were and that he poured them down the drain.

    Let's see. I had one friend say that Old Rasputin tasted like Advil. But usually I get the 'this ain't beer, it's shit line." Until I tell them the high abv. Then suddenly, they like it and think it's manly.

    Just gave my wife a taste of my Big Black Voodoo Daddy (American Double Stout) and she said: "Taste like motor oil".

    Hahah...and she loves Belgian beers.

    the amount of BMC drinkers who come to my bar and order gulden draak because of the ABV (and then pretend to like it) is alarming.

    I was at a tasting at a local store. Talking to some friends there, this kid comes over and says, "where's the real beer?"
    I happenned to be standing next to the Smuttynose section, grabbed one and showed it to him. He says, "no, the American beer!" I said, "well, this is brewed in New Hampshire, American enough?" he walks off. I see him a few minutes later with a 30-rack of Bud Light.
    I was thinking of asking if he knew that's no longer an American beer.

    My cousin bought me a 120 for Xmas, so my Uncle(Bud Light guy) insisted on trying some. Well, a few seconds later he came over to those of us enjoying it and exclaimed with a disgusted look on his face: "this tastes like burnt orange monkey piss!" Needless to say, I have been blessed with the name of my first homebrew. Long live BOMP!

    So this lady goes into a local bottle shop. She asks the guy in the beer cooler to help her select a good dessert beer and adds she doesn't want anything too hoppy. The employee walks her over to the bomber room and quickly grabs a GDBC fresh hop and informs her this would be perfect... fresh hop was right next to a bomber of espresso oaked yeti...

    Also have a co worker who goes into the buggs bunny just drank poison dance when I. Hand him anything too hoppy. Have another co workker who says hops taste like earwax.

    Honestly, I haven't read all of the posts here but I have a feeling my story could top them all. I had a friend that always drank nothing but Bud Light or Coors Light. I had always tried to get him to try one of Sam Adams beers or really anything else, and he'd always refuse and say they make him want to puke. Finally I got him to try a Sam Adams White Ale one night when we were standing in my kitchen. He took a swig of it and immediately turned toward my sink and started puking. There was no heaving...he just opened his mouth and I heard the puke splattering in the sink. I couldn't stop laughing at him, and he turned to me and said, "Dude, I told you I don't like that stuff!"

    According to my girlfriend, Every IPA tastes like hairspray, And according to one of my friends, Every craft beer is good. He however, Will open a bottle, Take two sips, Secretly pour it down the drain while nobody is looking and open up a Bud Light Lime or Lime-A-Rita. He claimed to love Guinness, So I gave him a bottle. Two drinks later he didn't want it because it was " going down too heavy ". He, as usual, opened up a Bud Light Lime and drank that instead.

    Went to a craft bar with my best friend of 30 years, he is not much of a drinker any more. But he surveyed the whole list of craft beers and listened to my recommendations, then chose a Heineken! I was ready to strangle him :)!
