    Thirded. Most of the best beers in the Northwest are not bottled or bottled in very limited quantities and many great beers only make it here on tap even if they are distributed in bottles.

    If this place was in Seattle, you'd have to say it like this: "Yeah, um... I've been coming here for like, a really long time, and, um... don't get me wrong, your beer selection is great and I really like the place but, um... well it's just that, well, I think I'll just have a glass of water. Thanks so much."

    Go back in there and say to the manager "Hey I was thinking about you mentioning that I never come in here anymore, and I think I realized why....". Then you should tell him why (in case that wasn't clear).
