Your first craft beer?

I remember mine was Arrogant Bastard. All i had ever consumed to that point was Bud and MGD. I tasted instantly thought it tasted like S*** lol. I put the bottle down for several years and didnt taste it again. I tried many others in the mean time and was pleasantly surprised that beer could have a different flavor that colored water! Needless to say i tried AB again in the more recent years and found it to be f****** amazing.

Heh, mine was a HB pale ale.
My first words was.. this isn't ( insert your favorite BMC beer here ).
My first non-home brew craft beer was a local micro.. and my first words was... it tastes like home brew

Mine was fat tire, which isn't all that crazy and while it wasn't awesome it was drinkable. I then got a terrapin 12 pack mixer and hated everything that was hoppy. Slow transition and everything is good!

I'm not entirely sure. I suspect it was either our local brewery's red ale or Starr Hill's Dark Starr Stout. It's possible it could've been Magic Hat #9.

Pretty sure it was a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - I remember thinking "this thing tastes like grass!"

When your only 15, then beggers can't be choosers. LOL! I believe it was a Mirror Pond Pale.
