For me it was La Fin Du Monde. The taste, alcohol burn, uniqueness all contributed to my never going back to a BMC beer. Granted I had imports and micro's before, LFDM opened my eyes.

Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout. In all honesty, the first beer I ever drank.

Great way to celebrate your birthday. By the way, IASIP is one of the funniest, f'ing shows I have ever watched. I literally fell off of the couch watching their version of Extreme Home Makeover - the music playing while they screamed "Good Morning Juarez Family" is classic.

Rouge Dead Guy

I was always more of a whiskey drinker because I hated BMC beer. When I was 21 A friend of mine invited me out bar that had like 40 craft brews on tap. I couldn't decide and didn't know the difference between a lot of the styles so I picked "that one over there, with the skeleton on the handle". I went back to that bar 3 more nights that week to try all the different brews they had. I was hooked!

Fantastic.

I was never into BMC, and got started on numerous craft beers (not even craft necessarily; everything from Guinness Draft cans and Weeping Radish Corolla Gold to Sierra Pale Ale and Allagash White). But it was a tasting that I went to one night with (among others) a Lost Abbey Red Poppy, a 2 year aged Dogfish Immort Ale, a fresh Ballast Point Sculpin, and a cellar-aged Hoppin' Frog BORIS that sent me down the rabbit hole.
