Default Who remembers the first beer they had??

Mine was a nice luke-warm Icehouse. I was 12 years old. My 16 year old brother Bill and his friend Brandt made me drink it so I wouldn't tell on them to my parents. Until about the age of 18I stuck to the Bud/Miller family and thought it was all the world had to offer. Then I joined the Marine Corps and met some awesome dudes that opened my eyes to the world of home brewing and great beer. Cheers everyone.

A can of Bud Ice - in the alley behind my neighbors house. Awesome times

edit = that was my first solo full beer. Doesn't count the many sips off of dad's crappy beer when I was growing up

Had my first in some small village outside Frankfurt in Germany

Seriously, it was the best beer I've ever had. That might be because it was my first and it just felt better, or maybe it's that I have a soft spot for German lagers and getting it at the source is better then the bottled stuff we have access to here. They had good pizza, too.

It was a school trip as well which made it even better. We 'weren't supposed to drink' but one of the teachers was going to the bars with us, the other telling is how bad drinking is Trying to sneak into some hotel in a foreign country was pretty fun.

Actually my first beer I tried to drink was some kind of winter guinness thing when I was 16. First beer to touch my tongue was when I was like 8-10 and it was probably busch that my grandpa had me try at my birthday party. My reaction was obviously of repulse and wonder of how they can drink that. My view has not changed. 4 years after my first beer, I started making wine. One+ year later, I started looking into beer, 3 months later: first brew, 2 weeks after that: gone AG. 3 weeks later: Now, drinking first PM oatmeal stout. Mmmmm.

I seem to remember that my dad was a Coors drinker waay back when I was in my formative years. The first memberable time was the first time he let me try a Guinness: which back "in the day" it was only the extra stout. It was love even at first tasting. To this day I think the extra stout is so much better then the draught version.

Split a couple Milwaukee's Best my friend took out of his dad's fridge with some friends at our clubhouse back when I was 12. Good times!
