Ask Bacchus: What Are They Sayin'?

Civil discourse has taken a beating in the past year. People just say what's on their minds!

Judgy, judgy, judgy! LOL.

A website (to remain nameless) compiled a list of quotes that tell us what bartenders think about the beer you order and drink. Don't worry, no Bacchus bartender was included. We love all of our customers, but here's what some had to say about your choice of brew (and, if you didn't know, all tap beer is $2 on Tuesdays at Bacchus).

Keep in mind, this is all for fun. Please don't take anything personally (and, remember, no Bacchus bartender was asked to comment). Each quote is from a different person...
