Default Best Beer Memory

Hey everyone,

I was listening to one of my favorite songs the other day and was enjoying how the song was able to take me to a different time and place. I started to wonder if I could relate that to beer. I started to think of beers that have a great memory associated with them and how when I drink one of those beers I seem to think about that moment, even if for an instance.

I was wondering if any of you have a "beer memory". Mine is a wonderful night of great weather and baseball with my brother and PBR's, but I'd like to hear yours.

You can find my story here and I encourage you to post your story here as well. I'd love to hear it!

Although my palate has developed greatly since that first sip of coors light, I still drink a fair amount of BMC. Every once in a while when I pick up a warm can (important part) of BMC, it takes me back to my friends basement at 16, pulling cans out of a plastic 6-pack holder and wondering if I could finish all six or not...

Whenever I drink Bell's Oberon, it takes me back to college (Michigan State). It may not be my favorite beer anymore, but it was definitely the GO TO craft beer of my college days.

LOL.

Love it guys!

I remember in high school we used to get a party ball of Bud Light on a Friday night. If we finished it, 8 of us, it was impressive. It still is kind of a feat, but by our standards today we finish off kegs and still want more...

As for Bell's Oberon, I've got a beer like that to. Linie's Honeyweiss...This was probably the first craft brew that I drank consistently. It was all I drank for a while and now the only time I ever get it is when I go and eat hot wings. So I suppose from here on out each time I drink Honeyweiss, of course if it isn't with wings, I'll be thinking about delicious fried chicken!

Thanks for the responses. I love hearing people's stories.

Like most of you guys, one of my favorite memories involved a "starter beer". My friends and I all went down to St. Augustine for spring break. Despite a couple of us moving away for school, we were all able to meet up and drive down together.

After walking around St. Augustine in the hot Florida sun all day, we decided to stop into a burger bar-style place with a covered patio overlooking the St. John's river. It was great to just take a break from walking around to enjoy a big (1 lb.), juicy cheeseburger with some cold Yuenglings on draft.

Not the greatest beer in the world, but one of my greatest beer memories for sure.

The 70`s Nashua,NH -> kegs of Molson Golden ale placed in snowbanks to keep cold and snow filled bongs

Fast forward to the early 80s and it was Mickey's Big Mouth

Now the early 90s and it was O'Malley's Irish pub (daytona beach) and drinking every type of beer from around the world to get your name on a award plaques over the bar

I have a few...

Coors light on tap in Colorado before I got into the craft brews was so delicious compared to what we got back east. My wife and I got hooked on those for a while.

On a trip to Albuquerque I had my first Fat Tire. That really stood/stands out as one of the best tasting beers ever.

Mojo IPA and Hazed and Infused, Boulder Beer Co. are recent beer experiences seared into the memory from annual trips to the area.

One summer night in 1983 my two friends and I were kicking around the neighborhood and saw a brown paper bag sitting by the curb, it looked full of something. That something was a six pack of COLD Michelob! Someone must've forgotten to bring it in after hopping, oh well, their loss was our gain. Two beers each and we were having a GREAT time! My buddy's older sister found us out but she was cool. Oh what a night.....

When I drink bud light from a keg with my friends from growing up it reminds me of my 21st birthday. At the end of the night we realized no one had done a keg stand and I was to blitzed to do much of anything. One of my firends tried to do one. We got him up, but there was next to nothing in the keg and it tipped over. He landed on his neck and miraculously got up and laughed it off. I thought we were going to the hospital for sure.
