IPAs are too heavy man.
I dunno...my bologna, mayo, and peanut butter toast beer turned out pretty good....
I was told recently while bar tending, "I don't drink that craft stuff, I'm very anti-establishment. I stick to good old American products like Miller and Natural light...."
My wife says all IPAs taste like perfume.
Did your head spin all the way around? I would have a field day responding to that one.
I had to do a little Frank Costanza in my head... Serenity NOW!!! He overheard me talking about Backwoods Bastard to a regular of mine. There was no helping this one so I appeased him and talked about Strohs.
I had my cousin try some Surly Furious during x-mas and she says " you actually drink this stuff"? More for me I guess.
"Is that one of those Whisky beers"
"Look at me I drink beer from a goblet".. lol thats my favorite
I agree with him. That beer sucks.
My best friend compared DFH 120 to what he thinks Mr. Clean would taste like.
To be fair, I don't like it either.
According to my friend, Hopslam is only " A decent IPA " But apparently " It doesn't compare to his Guinness ".
Another friend told me that Humu Lupa " Tastes like rotten banana's and dish soap. " He immediately washed it down with a Labatt Blue Light Lime.
ISO LaBatt Blue Light Lime
I usually pull a bmc reversal and tell them my craft beer tastes like shit. Then I ask if I can have one of their Bud Lights. Then I take a sip and proclaim "HOLY SHIT THIS IS AMAZING!! WHERE DID YOU GET IT?"
If ISO means that you're seeking it out, Check Meijer.
My wife says that Boston Lager tastes like a bowling alley.
A friend of mine said IPAs taste like olives.
Even when I was new to IPAs and couldn't handle them well, I tasted nothing like that.
"Blargh, tastes like yogurt" - After drinking Aventinus Eisbock
I let my roommate (who was drinking Busch Lite) try a sip from my Sierra Nevada Celebration. I basically got "Wow that is interesting. Hoppy! I do not like that." and I just chuckled and took it back
My father-in-law will periodically say somehthing like "you like those dark beers" when I have a Gumballhead or Two Hearted in my hand.
That's like trying to teach astrophysics to a wino who dropped out of high school and hasn't read a book since then. You might be more successful next time if you make a logical attempt at transitioning a macro drinker to craft. Perhaps offer them a Kolsch, a Pilsner, or a Blonde Ale instead?
No matter what, they're always "too bitter."
"Aaauuuuuh (spit spit)" I thought my buddy would like Outer Darkness...
Well my dad says that anything above 7% ABV is wine and not beer (even if it is beer).
"Not drinking anymore beers with weird labels"
Most recently, a friend told me that 60 minute tastes like watery bologna. It may have been the dumbest comment I have ever gotten on a beer.
Long setup, but worth it:
My mother, who prior to me introducing her to craft only drank Guinness Foreign Extra, and then only sparingly, has liked every stout I have shared with her, including CBS (when she was in town for the birth of her grandson), Ten Fidy, and Stone IRS (she just refuses to buy any herself, citing cost). When I went up to Chicago she discovered that I had put Founders Breakfast Stout in the fridge and just on the novelty of the name alone, had to try it. Later that day when I had one myself, she remarked, "Why are you drinking my Breakfast Stout?"
had my girlfriends friend say BCBS tasted like tar as i was breaking my BCBS virginity, very horrible story
A friend and I were at a local bar (MI) and a buddy asks us what we're drinking, and I say Bell's Winter Ale.
Holding a bottle of Bud Light he says with a look of disgust, "that's so un-American".
I proceeded to explain that the beer was brewed right here in our home state. However I did strategically refrain from explaining that Anheuser-Busch InBev is a Belgian-Brazilian company (recently found out Goose Island is also owned by AB Inbev)
Does he think all liquor is wine too?
Gave my buddy an Old Chub; "this tastes like a chocolatey asshole"
Well if something is ~5% ABV it is beer, if it is 10-15% it is wine and if its above 20% its liquor.
I brought a New Belgium Folley pack to a friends house one night, and his girlfriend reached for an Abbey Style Ale. She had noticed the pack included Fat Tire, took a swig straight from the bottle and said, "Hey, this kinda tastes like Fat Tire." I was screaminng in my head.
Edit: Also, a dude at our monthly poker game insists that all IPAs taste like "lemon Pledge".
"You have anything normal on tap?" HA. Fool.....
"Hey, thanks man. I appreciate it."
I sure hope you drank it and didn't just leave it there.
That's what she said.
"this isn't beer, this is doo doo water with sprinkles and you like this? gross!" No one ever said this to me and it's not funny. None of this is funny.
"This is too bitter" on a Sam Adam Boston Lager
"Careful, this one might be too strong." on a Guinness Draft
"Don't go for the darker ones, you might not like them. They're too intense." while I was checking out the beer menu at one of the local micro-brewery/restaurants. Of course, I heeded the good advice and went with a pale ale, not intending to offend them by telling that the imperial stouts happen to be my favorite style by far.
It's amazing the way those sorts of people have been brainwashed by the cheap red-white-and-blue patriotism overload marketing employed by BMC brands.
Of course, a lot of lower-end grocery stores don't help, only having sections labelled "Domestic" and "Import" and putting whatever craft offerings they have into the Import section.
Regardless if it's an IPA or not, my friend always says every beer I give him is too hoppy or he can really taste the hops.
He likes some quads now though.
