    Back in my BMC days I used to think darker beers had more ABV, I think that is a pretty common misconception though.

    Ben used to wear one himself until he found out he never said it.
    He was the Yogi Berra of the 1700s. "I never said all those things I said."

    That article is full of contradictions that someone points out in a comment at the end...all it really proves is that the Hodgson fella most likely didn't invent the style of the IPA...

    I'm agreeing to the can thing. I thought cans imparted a mettalic taste, and were meant for lower quality "beer pong Beers". Then I lived near Oscar Blues for a few years. Rewired my brain right quick.

    A lot of people STILL believe it. Especially in Canada. It drives me crazy.

    When I brought a load of beer back from Michigan to Northern Ontario (Founders, Bells, etc) I got tons of comments, "oh so you like the weaker stuff from the US?" from people as they drank their Molson Canadians and Coors Lights.

    ...that MHL was the (real) "Champagne of Beers".
    There are by far so many more beers deserving of that title.

    There's actually some truth to that (unless I was punked). My father-in-law used to work at the Strohs brewery in town and he confirmed that story with a few of the brands they produced. (disclaimer...this has to do with coming from the same brewery, not a totally different brewery I know...)

    If you mean the long comment, the bloke is taking out of his arse. Progressive tax regime in the late 18th century? Total bollocks. 6.5% strong in 1800? Nope, not true. He has no idea what he's talking about. IPA was never a strong beer in the 19th century.

    Yeah, when a blog's only editor is also the author, misunderstandings and errors are much more likely to show up and not get caught before being picked up and passed along.

    That a blog and its associated comments are often subject to distortions of meaning that are carried away whole hog by the casual reader. A reinforcement of the same point you were making, but also intended as a more broad generalization about blogging and comments on them in general.
