What Bartenders Really Think of Your Beer Order
Have you ever wondered what assumptions your bartender makes about you after hearing your drink order? Well, now you know.

Bartenders have a hard job. They have to deal with drunk people every night. I’m sure you can image what bartenders are thinking about that freshly-legal group ordering Long Island Iced Teas and Porn Star shooters (we’ve all been there). But what assumptions are bartenders making about you when you’re ordering your favourite beer? Read at your own risk…
What Your Beer Order Says About You
India Pale Ale
You’ve never lost a game of beer pong. You’re loud and semi-obnoxious but it’s why people like you. Bartenders know you’re only ordering an IPA to impress your friends and show that you’re a real “hop head”. It’s ok. Put down the super hoppy IPA that you’re struggling to get through and order a blonde ale.
IPAs we love:
Summit Seeker – Banded Peak Brewing Company
Fat Tug IPA – Driftwood Brewery
Stout or Porter
You are patient and demanding at the same time. You appreciate well crafted beer, yet you don’t come off as annoying when telling people about it. Be proud of that, because it’s a hard thing to do. You have probably been told you have a “solid” handshake.
Stouts we love:
Death By Coconut – Oskar Blues Brewery
Oilberta Stout – Brewsters Brewing Company
You are a simple person. You like drinking pale ales because they represent your personality; light-hearted and easy-going. You love spending time outdoors, will eat anything if it has bbq sauce on it, and baseball is your favourite sport.
Pale Ales we love:
Windstorm – Stanley Park Brewing
Uncanny – Mother’s Brewing Company
You’ve claimed to “know that song before it was popular” at least once in your life. You’re not usually a craft beer fan but you can get down with a good wheat ale. You have a witty (see what we did there?) sense of humour and are usually the funniest person at house parties.
Wheat beers we love:
Belgian Wit – Mill Street Brewery
Stargazer Chamomile Wheat – Canuck Empire Brewing
You’re a chill person and make friends very easily. In the summertime, you spend 90% of your time on a patio. You claim to be a “huge Van Morrison”, yet you only know one song (we all know which one). While pilsners are your favourite, you’d pretty much drink anything.
Pilsners we love:
Creedence – Crazy Mountain Brewing Company
Downtime Pilsner – Samuel Adams
It’s safe to say, sour beers aren’t for everyone. None of your friends enjoy the same beers you do, but they do enjoy your impressive record collection you have at home. You’re not afraid to be different or wear weird sweaters. You also probably go to board game cafes to play Monopoly.
Sour beers we love:
Pitayana – Brasserie Générale
Rosy Cheeks – No-Li Brewhouse
You’re scared of needles and have never had a confrontation with anyone. You are known to only have a couple at the bar and then sneak out without saying goodbye to anyone. When asked what your favourite holiday is, your answer is always “my birthday”.
Fruit Beers we love:
Main Squeeze – Alley Kat
Kataja Juniper – Steel & Oak Brewing Co.
Gluten Free Beer
Your life sucks and everyone probably feels sorry for you.
Gluten Free Beers we actually like:
Lazy Mutt Gluten Free – Minhas Micro Brewery
New Grist Ginger Gluten Free – Lakefront Brewery

QUIZ: What Does Your Beer Say About Your Mood?
Mood rings: they were all the rage in the 70s and then made a comeback in the 90s which means they are probably due for a comeback sometime soon. While we wait let’s use our beer instead. What does the beer you’ve chosen say about you?
