So, this is a thing that has bothered me for a while, and recently it happened again to someone I know. I'm aware that there are some people who work in/run bottle shops, as well as the larger contingent of beer consumers/buyers, so I wanted to get some thoughts here. A year or so ago, maybe two, we went to Hunger N Thirst in Lancaster, a place we really like and still do to this day. Went in to the bottle shop after having called to confirm they had bottles of Weyerbacher Riserva, which is probably the beer my girlfriend and I both love the most. Went in, guy said it was a 2 bottle limit per person. No problem, happy to follow the very clear and obvious rules. My girlfriend and I questioned if we should get 3 or 4, at which point the guy mentioned that for us, it was really 2 per couple. I asked him which one of us was not a person, as he indicated in his original relaying of the rule. He just tried to deflect, saying "I don't know how not to be a d!ck about craft beer" which prompted my reply of "I know.". Then, somehow we were able to buy 3 bottles, and it was presented to us as if he was doing us a favor of sorts. No favor, really, but whatever. Not going to win that battle. Fast forward to this past weekend, when, of all places on earth, the Giant in Middletown had bottles of BCBS (1 per person) and my brother in law and sister were there grabbing beer and figured, hey, why not. The person running that area alerted them that it was 1 per person, but really 1 per couple. Why is this a thing? Why not just say that it is 1 per couple if the individual gets a feeling that two people are romantically linked and therefore have condensed into 1 being instead of 2? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
