I am often accused of being a beer snob, a charge to which I proudly plead guilty. I have several terms for beer that I deem, shall we say, less than quality.

Perhaps my favorite derogatory term is "ghetto beer", which is reserved for beer that people think is quality but is really just bad beer with a fancy - or foreign - name. One such beer is Grolsch Beer from Germany. I don't understand why people think this is a good beer, other than that it has a German name so it must be good.
