“Warm beer and cold coffee are the same temperature”

Is “warm” beer really warm, or just not cold? Is “cold” coffee really cold, or just not warm? “A warm beer and a cold coffee may be the same temperature since the temperature norms for beer and coffee differ” was printed in a 2010 book. “Its funny cuz we say ‘cold’ coffee and ‘warm’ beer but they’re the same temperature” was posted on Twitter on June 28, 2012.

“Warm beer and cold coffee are the same temperature” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on April 30, 2015, and again on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on September 2, 2017. If both the beer and the coffee are left in the same room, they are at room temperature.

The norm varies from context to context, e.g.: A warm beer and a cold coffee may be the same temperature since the temperature norms for beer and coffee differ.
