10 Beer Names You Might Be Saying Wrong

http://www.beersyndicate.com/blog/10-beer-names-you-might-be-saying-wrong/

My guess is that everyone here knows how to pronounce the names of these beers.

But what is the most commonly mispronounced beer you hear?

Not a beer but a style, but I never know how to pronounce Saison.  I've heard it at least 3-4 different ways.

I find people outside Massachusetts mispronounce Budweiser and Shiner Bock.

I find that I have an easier time pronouncing Bud as 'Buttwiper'.


EDIT - Maybe it's personal preference.

I pronounce most of these correctly, but how do you pronounce Acetaldehyde and Diacetyl? :)

The cool thing about acetaldehyde is that once you've learned what it is, you'll never find it in your beer again. Other than maybe one of my early attempts at a light colored beer, I've never had it. Sure spent a lot of time figuring out what it is and where it comes from though.

+1.  I remember racking and kegging too soon back in the day and noticing it a time or two. Since I started giving yeast time to clean up, not once.

Still haven't found DMS even after switching to 60 min boil. Am I bold enough to do whirlpool hopping in pils malt beers? Heck no, that boogeyman is in there somewhere.

Don't assume.  There's a whole thread here somewhere on the pronunciation of Pliny.

Funny enough, Grimbergen.  Told a guy about it one time and he loves the beer now, but always adds an 's' in it and says Grimsbergen.

Funny thoughts from the article.  I also see a ton of people misspell Pliny as Pliney.  Sam Calagione apparently pronounces 'peach' closer to 'sin'.
