And I'm speechless, I really thought it was spelled acetylaldehyde!
 
I'm getting real tired of certain non-beer friends harassing me about why I don't wait/pay for Westy 12, Dark Lord, etc, etc, etc. Fun fact: I have 50 gallons of borderline excellent beer in my basement that I made for less than I would pay for eight Westy 12s. I don't think I need the trouble!   ;D

My MO at beer festivals is to go with the shortest lines. I really don't care what awesome beer is being tapped, this unknown brewery's hefeweizen will do just fine.

I fixing the beer world one mind at a time. :-)

Another one for me is when the bagger at a grocery store or target uses way more bags than necessary.  Like only one item per bag. Bagging the gallon of milk.  Etc. I think this excessive use of bags is what led so many cities around here to put in plastic bag bans in place.  If they used a reasonable number of bags we wouldn't have needed the ban.

Ok, one more. Suffixes peeve me. Like the difference between ed and ive. As in "I'm sexually atractED to Pink." Vs "I'm sexually atravtIVE to Pink." That makes such a huge difference.

How's this related to beer, you ask? Figure it out.

Also peeved by people under the age of 60 who don't know who Pink is.

I find the misuse of the descriptor "Belgium" irritating, as in Belgium Dark Strong Ale or Belgium Blonde. 
But I guess it's no worse than Indian Pale Ale. ;)

I find homebrewers who come into a brewery and think they know more about brewing beer than the head brewer extremely annoying and far too common.

Maybe you do, maybe you don't. But you shouldn't try to show off your knowledge to the head brewer. It gets old and boring. Remember that brewers have their own reasons for doing things. Maybe they don't want to stick to the syle guides 110%! Maybe they don't own a copy of "Brewing Classic Styles". As a for instance. I made a stout that I posted here a while back with Dark german munich. It was really, really tasty. Guy comes up to me and tries to tell me "this isn;t a "traditional" Irish Stout."

Yeah, maybe not. I also used German ale yeast. To me it was better than a traditional Irish stout. So STFU homebrew nazi!

UGH. SAME.

There is one guy in KC who refuses to correct this. I hear the description getting made fun of at every competition in the area by the judges in Belgian Specialties. Sorry, Belgium Specialties.  ::)

Makes you want a pint of England Bitter. Definitely no Canada Lager, though.      ;)
