    Welcome! The rangers suck!!! Coming from a flyers fan, I have to,say that...

    I'm sure that was a painful realization upon the first sip.

    i understand you didn't notice it when you got off the shelf, yes it happens you just grab it and off you go but then you didn't notice it when you put paid for it or bagged it, ok i guess you where still in a hurry. you got home you took it out of the bag and that guy holding a mug on the logo didn't wink at you? so be it. but can you honestly tell me that you didn't look at the bottle before you opened it? no friging way!

    My initial response is .... How in the $&@* did you mix these up?.. After reading your defense of mixing them up.. My secondary response is how in the fuck did you mix these up?!?!

    Its like never grocery shop while your hungry, in this case dont buy beer while buzzed. Ive tried that and have brought home some crappy IPA due to choosing without thinking.

    Yeah - I was buy cases of Schlenkerla Marzen - got three but when I got home found one case was Weizen - cases are identical except for the checkmark on what's in them. Still a pretty tasty mistake.

    In franconia, a lot of brewers use really similar labels for different beers. Krug Bräu Breitenlesau, in my opinion, is the worst offender-except for the christmas beer and the one mixed beer, all their beers have the same basic label with the picture of the wirtshaus, and only the small top label (written in small, difficult to read, thin font) gives away if there is a Bock, unfiltered Kellerbier, dark Lager,Pils or wheat beer inside- and given how different their beers are,it always really annoyed me...
    A lot of smaller brewers there do the same. Can you tell those beers for instance apart from a distance?
    [​IMG] at least they have slightly different colours, but still. Happened to me often that I wanted a Dunkles and bought a Bock or a Helles...So while I don't get how the OP could confuse the two Oktos, I know the phenomenon of intending to buy a certain beer yet getting something different.

    Did same. Had a six of Bells Third Coast Old Ale, fantastic beer at $18 a six. Went to get more a few weeks later, and found price had dropped to $10. Sweet, end of season clearance so I thought. Get home crack one and "what the..", I grabbed Bells Third Coast Ale. Very similar package, very different beer!

    I hate when that happens. Last weekend I went to Wegman's to get a bomber bottle of Victory's new HoppyQuad...came home...took a sip...was like, "This tastes odd." Checked the fridge...sure enough, I had picked up a six pack of Milwaukee's Best tall boys by accident. Honest mistake.

    Looked right at Stone Go To and picked up a six of Stone Saison. VERY similar packaging.

    Both are very good Octoberfest beers.

    About all Oktoberfest beers are going to be in fall colors...

    The only time I ever did this was when I bought a bottle of St. Bernardus Tripel when I thought I was buying their ABT 12 Quad. The labels are very similar except for blue vs green. I just saw the brewery name and went for it. I haven't tried the tripel yet but I'm sure it won't disappoint. Just not what I was looking for.

    Ok...Well you do realize that we will have to put this in your personnel file. If you don't repeat this mistake in the next 12 months there will be no problem, but if there is another occurrence we will have to suspend your craft beer drinking rights for the day & you will be forced to drink Old Mil Lite for 24 hours. A 3rd instance may result in getting your BA site privileges revoked (yawn). A 4th instance...well we have never had anyone go that far but I think you have to date (euphemism-sex) somebody's ugly sister in which case all BA members are required to buy you a beer.
    Glad we had this talk-don't let it happen again.

    I smell a freshly roasted j of something you weren't used to for that amount of confusion, and the gatorade, pack of smokes and fritos doesn't help your cause.
    I'm so confused right now. Really?
    How could you ever mistake Sam Adams packaging for Sierra Nevada? How could you mistake long neck bottles for short neck?

    I went in to get a 4pk of 2015 Bigfoot. Come home, they're marked 2014. Went back and got more.

    On the plus side, they were delicious.

    I've made it to check out with Smoked Porter before thinking it was SSR as well. Luckily I was at TW, so I caught it while watching the little screen on the swipey thing as they rang everything up. Sadly, we'll never have the chance to make that mistake again......Very much miss SSR...

    Haven't had the SN but the SA wasn't bad, at least to me.
    I usually FORGET to get the beer I originally went to pick up at the store, instead of picking up the WRONG beer.

    I meant to buy a Shock Top Chocolate Wheat beer, one of very few "American Dark Wheat Ales" to tick that style, and without realizing there were two different beers grabbed a bottle of Shock Top Shockolate Wheat, which is not of the same style.

    I already wasn't looking forward to drinking something from Shock Top, and once I realized it wouldn't even get me the style tick I was hoping for, I was even more sad.

    ISO: Any American Dark Wheat Ale.

    Can I throw a little bit of hate to the haters? Or is that just wrong? There's no need to get nasty, we're all brothers here, right?

    To those who've admitted to their mistakes - great! And I think Lurches has topped that one... I've bought several German beers that have been 'other than what I was looking for' because of the similar labels - fortunately they've all been good.

    This happens to me all the time when I'm out looking for chicks but mistakenly pick up dudes instead. People all look the same to me with the faces and arms and whatnot. I wish people wore labels clearly explaining what they were.

    We've all done it in some fashion, one time I thought I was buying singles of The Brother and The Sister from Fremont, turns out I bought The Brother and their Summer Ale. Only ticked because I was buying it for someone else.

    I prefer the Sam Adams, much truer to the style so I'd consider that an upgrade.
