I'm still sayin' the first time I tasted Kate the Great at the Portsmouth Brewery...that....was....AMAZING! That's the reason I started cloning it later on.

It's tough, I'd go with a beer called Larry Hop or Hoppin Larry from Arbor Brewing Co. in Ann Arbor that I had a few years ago, or a Kentucky Breakfast Stout at summer beer fest. On another note, the worst beer I've ever had was a bottle of Heineken in the dorms at U of M after eating a slice of pizza with the worst cotton mouth ever. It was all there was to drink in the room. It was gross.

While I was on a Sam Adam's brewery tour in Boston about 5 years ago, we got a bonus pitcher of beer. It was the last of their Chocolate Bock that they'd had on tap for the season... it was April. Fan-&*^%$#@-tastic. It was the early days of my being able to appreciate good beer. A revelation, I tell you.

Just tonight I had The Tide and Its Takers from Anchorage Brewing Co. That is one fine sour tripel; making me reevaluate my best beers.

Probably between Funkwerks Chardonnay barrel aged blonde and 2008 Dogfish head WWS.

I can't say best, but certainly most memorable: first decent beer after Naddy/Keystone college days, i.e. the first time I enjoyed a beer, was Yeungling lager while camping. First "craft" beer was Magic Hat No 9, and the first time I realized just how great beer can be was Chimay Grand Reserve. Those are my "best" beers, at least relative to their importance in my beer-life.
