Funniest reviews thread. Cried I laughed so hard.
Don't worry -- it is easy pick up the wrong beer.
We were at a local bar (OK, dive bar) that had an excellent kielbasi & American cheese pizza. I went to the bar and bought the first round. Came back with them and everyone was ticked. See - I bought a round of Miller lite instead of Bud light (remember, dive bar). The table claimed that Bud Light was way better. I was like, really guys???.
But I got out of it by a phone call from my mom. She was working at church Bingo and came out to a flat tire. So I had to go change it.
Now that shit's funny
I like this one too! Scared the dog I laughed so hard
Please tell me there were chilli cheese, it's the ONLY kind of Fritos...
Sure you did. But, it's a great excuse to go load up on SN Oktoberfest to complement the SA Octoberfest, then flip back and forth bottle-to-bottle to do a direct comparison over a full 12-pack, film it, put it up on You Tube, become bigger than Gangnam.
The only thing similar about the OP's beers is the style they fall under.
I think he was drinking when he made his purchase.
I recently was in a bottle shop in Cardiff by the Sea, saw Coronado Anniversary Imperial IPA and was like, "oh, I'd love to try that!" Bought it, took it home, drank it that very night. Tasted an awful lot like a barleywine. Very carmel-y and sweet. I was like, "Hmm, this doesn't quite match up to what I had anticipated." I looked more closely at the label. 17th Anniversary. "Oh..." Coronado just released their 19th Anniversary. This bottle had been hanging out for over 2 years, slowly aging into a delicious and satisfying beer, just not what I had intended to buy. Now I'm going to be a whole lot more careful when I purchase anniversary beers.
This is a thread about making a mistake. Since obviously you are someone who doesn't make mistakes (unless you consider awful spelling and grammar to be mistakes haha) I wonder why you opened this thread? And if I misinterpreted your post, and it was sarcasm (done poorly if it was), my apologies.
The last mistake I made was a bit different. After checking the bottling dates on a bunch of Two Hearted six packs on shelf I accidentally grabbed the oldest one, six months old in fact, instead of the three week old one I thought I had pulled aside.
Can't say I've ever done this. However, as others have mentioned, you could have done much worse on the accidental pull. Just enjoy the ride.
I would have thought that way a couple years ago, but with how strict the rules are about subject matter, I can't imagine a beer related anything that isn't threadworthy.
That Lagunitas IPA and SN Hop Hunter. Every time. Packaging and logos are the exact same thing.
My wife sent me to the store for milk and I came home with a 12 pack of Fat Tire…Forgot the milk! DOH
I also went out to buy a Hop Stoopid by Lagunitas one day, but accidentally came home with a green bottle Heinecken...Badum tss
If you're looking for SN, it won't be found in a longneck bottle....
Something similar happened to me in a brothel a number of years ago!
I feel like huge ding dong, went to the store yesterday afternoon to pick up some beer and didn't bother to red the lable. Got home opened it and it's an amber color looked at the table and it says calm before the storm, shit! I need a victory at sea. Oh well turns out that it's a light version of v@s, probably not as good though. Moral of the story READ the LABEL!
I bought what I thought was a great beer...turns out, it was just an above-average beer!
Drink it and look more closely next time.
With that grocery list, the beer is the least of your worries
I went to the beer store today psyched to grab a 4 pack pf Ninja v. Unicorn. I Got home and realized I grabbed a four pack of a PW stout...Anyone else as blind as me?
Did you get the Captain's Daughter?
Yes and the other DIPA Pipeworks but I really wanted the NvU. I usually F up after too many beer....
I once picked up Bell's Jupiter, not once, but TWICE in the same store visit, thinking it was Saturn.
That's OK got to go back tomorrow for Nugget Nectar. The guy at Olivers's
was great, recognized me from Friday when I got my Hop Ranch and handed
me Captain's and NvU. Pays to where a tie sometimes.
Absolutely, just this last weekend I wore my glasses to buy beer for the first time. Picked up the wrong four or six pack on more than one occasion. I will not make that mistake again.
About 60 days ago I accidentally bought 2 six packs of Founders Angry Bastard instead of Backwoods Bastard. That's what happens when BWI . What a great mistake. I loved it. Just drank the last one.
I can see mixing up Pipeworks stuff easily even when sober. Cool labels, but very busy.
A friend brought over Cynicale the other day when he thought he had bought Abrasive. Good for me - had not had the Cynicale and really enjoyed it.
I've never heard of "Angry Bastard" by Founders. What style is this?
I have and made it all the way into the glass before I realized it. It was a Ballast Point. Was after Calm Before the Storm (cream ale with coffee and vanilla) but grabbed Victory at Sea (imperial porter with coffe and vanilla). Talk about a vast difference from what should have been an easy drink. I still have a couple of the VaS left and this was months and months ago. I also wore 2 different colored shoes on a business trip. That was the last time I was courteous and got ready without turning on the light.
Dirty Bastard would be by guess
The other day I thought I was grabbing Pineapple Sculpin and instead grabbed Habanero Sculpin. Now I'm stuck with a six pack of that nonsense....I guess that's what neighbors are for.
Stupid, stupid, stupid
Not even going to give it a try?
You might like it.
I accidentally buy 3 times the amount I meant to one time. Wait that's every time
As for buying the wrong beer, I'm pretty obsessive over hunting down what I've been looking for.
Yes. Once I was grabbing a victory 4 pack in the local grocery and I meant to get blackout stout but came home with dirtwolf instead.
None so far, but I can't count the times I don't check dates when I am in a hurry.
Several times. Most recently, I thought I was buying Rodenbach Caractère Rouge, but accidentally bought a fancy-wooden-box-packaged 750 of Grand Cru. Overpaid, didn't get the beer I wanted, and already had 5 bottles of the Grand Cru in the cellar.
I had a brain fart once and grabbed a sixer of Westbrook White Thai instead of One Claw. Their cans have a similar design except for the color, so without even reading the text I got the yellow one and blue one mixed up in my head. No biggie, I suppose, but I did feel kind foolish when I opened that first one.
always. i look, i look away, i reach back... beers, citrus, other fruits, boxed/canned goods, ... anything. i read, then i look away, get distracted, then I look back... and I grab what i think is right.
there is so much in the world. a little serendipity (And terrible errors) make life more interesting yet more disappointing yet even better yet...
i meant to buy a bagful of blood oranges the other day. i was pleased with the price and the specific type. I bagged about 20 of them. I bought them, as well as some mushrooms, collards, duck fat, and onions. Got home. began to peel blood orange (one of the best citrus on all the planet!) only to find that it was some freaky small grapefruit.
THERE IS LITERALLY NO FOOD I DESPISE MORE THAN GRAPEFRUIT. Ugh.
Beers that "taste like grapefruit"? Good. Beers which actually have grapefruit? BAD.
Grapefruit itself? What the hell are you other primates thinking??g
what a world what a world.
(worst experience with a beer this way? Stone Belgian Anise Odd Year Stout [2011? 2013?] rather than the regular Imperial Russian Stout. Didn't realize until bottle was opened. Obviously I'm an idiot. I like anise... but didn't need that batshit crazy beer. though... i still suspect that it will age interestingly.)
