When sitting at a bar, I tend to mind my own business. But that doesn't mean I don't hear a lot of wacky stuff. In that spirit, here's a collection of off-the-wall beer-related quips and random quotes, heard throughout Arizona.


"They fermented a batch in a coolship at the top of Mingus Mountain."

-Overheard on July 6, 2019 at THAT Brewery (Cottonwood) from a beer server explaining the extent to which Arizona Wilderness Brewing goes in order to create 'Arizona beer.'


"Do you have any regular beer here?"

-Overheard on April 30, 2019 at Edelweiss Beer Garden, Phoenix, from a customer who unexpectedly realized they were in a German restaurant.
