10 Beer Names You Might Be Saying Wrong

The pronunciation of some words is regional like tomato (t’may-toe) and tomato (toe-mah-toe), and basically equally correct.  Other times, the pronunciation of a word is just flat out wrong, like pronouncing the word “supposedly” as “supposably” or “specific” as “pacific”.

But why on Earth would you ever correct somebuddy who pacifically says “supposably”?  Please don’t, because correcting people is one of those Catch-69 situations, like when somebody has ketchup on their face: If you tell them, you embarrass them by pointing it out, but if you don’t say anything, then you embarrass them because you let them walk around with ketchup on their face.  Not to mention, maybe the person is intentionally wearing ketchup on their face.  Like I said, Catch-69.

Likewise, please don’t go around correcting people who say the words on this list incorrectly.
