So, I manage a liquor store for my family north of Dallas. It's a small store, but I've worked hard at getting the craft beer selection where it is today and pride myself in knowing what I am talking about and helping new (and old) craft beer enthusiasts find what they are looking for or grabbing something new. Today, a customer comes in and heads right into the cooler. We don't have a walk in cooler... Slightly confused I walk in and here is the conversation that went down.. Me: "Sir? May I help you?" Customer: "Oh, do you have any Pliny the Elder?" (Just for the record, we are in Texas) Me: "Oh, I'm sorry, I am not actually able to get any of it in Texas. You won't find it here. It barely makes it out of California, to my knowledge." Customer: "Yeah, I thought so, I just wanted to check and see if you might have some." Me: "Yeah, I am sorry. Can I help you find a good IPA instead? I have quite a few." (I pointed out Jester King Wytchmaker, Clown Shoes Supa Hero, Left Hand Twisted Sister, Deschutes Hop Henge, BrewDog Hardcore IPA, West Coast IPA, etc.) Customer: "Nah, I was really just looking for that. Do you have any Rogue?" (I point out Hazelnut John John, Mocha Porter and Santa's Reserve) Customer: "Mmm, okay." *turns and leaves* And there you have it. It was an odd conversation to be sure. I may not have portrayed just how odd it was. Granted, I am not busting on the guy. I wanted to help him. It was just.. strange.. And IMO, anyone who knows and is looking for PtE should at least know the general state area it would be distributed. Texas seems like one of the least likely places for it to pop up you know? The whole conversation just threw me off Anyone else have a weird craft beer conversation like this? Or better yet have you met someone asking questions like this?
