Five O'Clock Friday: Beer Ordering Hint

When you're getting beer for a friend this weekend, be sure to understand their preferences. A recent Overheard in D.C. compilation included the following conversation:
Last Tuesday at the Cubs game. Guy comes back from getting beers:
Girl: "What'd you get?" 
Guy: "Amstel Light. Is that ok?" 
Girl (in a not-so-excited voice): "Oh I guess. It's just really hoppy for me."

I've heard the same lament from a friend who drinks Miller Lite. Well, taste is subjective.

Have a great weekend!


  1. LOL

    Bite me :)

    Ran into Keads at the blog shoot. Another Miller Lite fan. Did you know it's the only beer still actually brewed in Milwaukee?

    Awesome! We drank a lot of it.

    1. Don't worry buddy, I'll drink with you no matter what you drink. :-)

    2. I wouldn't let him order a Miller Lite at the Tap House the night before...It would have been subjecting me to cruel and unusual punishment to watch him drink water in a place that has so many good beers on tap.

    3. Not sure what am sad to have missed the most; the shooty goodness or buying MSgtB a good beer. :-)

  2. Amstel Light is hoppy! Admittedly, it's been quite some time since I've had that, but ....

    1. I had Amstel in Petra, from this tap, and, yes it was good. But I had been walking in the desert all day too. :-)
