Stoudt's Double IPA. A pretty big shock to the taste buds at 10% ABV after having had only BMC and the such beforehand.

Pretty sure it was Blanche de Bruxelles. I would always drink different beers but I think that beer was so different than anything I had had before that it got me really thinking about what I was drinking.

I had always been a big wheat beer drinker... as is typical of most women, with my mainstay being Blue Moon. But the beer that sent me in a glorious upward spiral was Karmeliet Tripel. Ever since then, I've been hooked on beer.
Granted, looking back it's funny that I loved wheat beers. Now, I cannot stand most wheat beers as they have some sort of metallic twang that I can't stand. I also can't drink very many trappist ales anymore....too sweet.

Now I'm hooked on lambics, farmhouse/saisons, big robust and complex imperial stouts, and a really good refreshing pale ale.

Thank you, Karmeliet Tripel.

I'm German/Irish from Wisconsin. First beer I had I remembered the name was Blatz in 32 gallon barrel. Course, LaCrosse was a Heileman town. It was Blatz, Old Style or Special X whenever the family got together, and it would STILL be that way if the current beers of that name were still brewed with their original recipes.

They say beer is an acquired taste. If so, I'd "acquired" it before I was even born.

Lots of imported beers in the late '70s expanded my palette, and Anchor Steam and Sam Adams Boston Lager were the first American beers that showed me how well it could be done. Today I'm totally in love the the craft beer explosion and all the options we never had when our group of 12-year-olds was surreptitiously guzzling cups of Blatz at a relative's wedding.

Magic Hat #9 for me. Had it at a bar in Cleveland while on vacation and never looked back.

Saranac Raspberry Wheat. I don't even think they brew it anymore.
