You're kidding, right??? I can't remember yesterday, much less 30 some-odd years ago. I'll take a wild stab and say Augsburger, warm. That's what my dad drank in his later years and he never refridgerated it.

My mom still tells a story about when I was 5... My babysitter walked into the kitchen to find me slurping the last of a 16oz bottle (stroh's I think) with a straw. The babysitter exclaimed "what are you doing?!" and I replied candidly "I felt like having a beer". When my mom got home she said I was ripping drunk

As for the first buzz I remember, that would be old milwaukee. We used to save our lunch money to buy a case of old mud on the weekend. A special thanks goes out to those 21 y/o folks who bought it for us.

Bud @ 14 yrs and it was nasty; thank God homebrewing didn't occur to me. I would have never left the house.

Glad someone else had that experience.... My first drink was vodka out of a water bottle on a boy scout camping trip with about 10 of us sharing maybe 2 shots worth, it didn't do much. My first buzz wasn't until college when I polished off 1/2 a bottle of 151 my first night in town. I have learned to keep the volumes down since then....

I didn't get buzzed off of beer until I was well past the drinking age. I tried it a few times in high school and college but couldn't stand it to drink more than half a can and at 200+ lbs thats not going to do much. The little bit I did drink was usually some kind of liquor or mixed drink.
I'm not sure exactly when it was but I'm fairly sure it was at a brewpub in Massachusetts when I was living up there, where I just had to try several different beers. 16oz craft beers add up real quick.

My first was Olympia. But, this thread reminded me of all the crazy cheap beer I used to drink in high school including, Rhinelander, Tuborg, Hamms (or even better Hamms Dry), Raineer, Lucky Lager. Gotta say that I had a real affinity for the Hamms in the short grenade bottles.

I got buzzed off of good old Rainier Beer when I was 10. We were at our cabin on the Wenatchee river. Man I thought it tasted good! Must have been those Artesians!!

First buzz was malt liquor...shared a 40 of Crazy Horse with some other friends when I was 12. First beer buzz I think was Miller (bleck).
