A Difference of Opinion

We went out for a few beers and dinner the other night. I could tell we were in for an interesting evening right away.

Me: "Is there anything special tapped that's not on the beer menu?"
Waitress: "There may be a couple things."
Me: Waiting...
Waitress: "But most people just order from the menu. There's a lot on it."
Me: Blink
Waitress: "It's usually the opposite. There might be some beers on the menu we're out of."
Me: "Um, thanks."
Waitress: Leaves without naming those other beers or taking any orders.

We finally got in a beer order, from the menu. When Colleen's hefeweizen arrived, it had an appearance similar to weak chocolate milk. We had enjoyed this same beer recently so I know it's not supposed to look like that. It's properly hazy, not sludgy.

Waitress: "If you're wondering why the beer looks that way, it's the bottom of the keg. But believe me, that's the best part."

The backlighting flatters the beer
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion on beer I suppose. We were out for a fun evening, so we laughed it off. (Either that or we were too shocked to react.) But the food, the company, and the other beers, were excellent.

    Speaking for the professional service industry- that girl needs to be fired. All I can do is shake my head and hope that you didn't tip her. You are a gentle soul to not have waged war and demanded discounts (there would have been a manager at my table in minutes).
    "believe me, thats the best part." I'm mind boggled. Did you drink it?!

    1. We didn't raise a stink. There was much fail in the service that evening, we had to laugh. Like watching a train wreck, we couldn't look away. :-) We frequent this place, and the evening was an aberration., with a very distracted server.
