I was in Rome with my wife and got a draft Guinness......my first thought after that first sip was "Hey, this doesn't taste like beer at all". My second thought was "This tastes great!"

When I was first getting into brewing, I went to Beer School at Desert Edge in SLC, Utah. It consisted of a brewery tour and discussion of the brewing process, then a four course meal and sampling six different beers. Before this, my idea of something adventurous was a heffeweizen, so I credit Desert Edge for opening my eyes to the possibilities. Plus it was a total bargain at $25 (the price is a bit higher now but still a bargain).

Paulaner Oktoberfest/Märzen. I still buy a couple of six packs in the autumn just for old time's sake.

Shiner Bock, while only about one step above BMC, was my first love. Then I moved onto the other styles Shiner was making, like hefeweizen, black lager, etc. I fell in love with hefeweizens and tried every single one I could find. Sam Adams mixed 12 packs also helped me find other styles I really enjoy, and allowed me to branch out into breweries.

Honestly, I started on pretty decent beer, drinking Blue Moon and Bell's Oberon, and while I enjoyed those, the beer that I distinctly remember lighting a spark in me was Ommegang's Hennepin. After I first had that, I was infatuated. I swear I dreamt about that beer for weeks on end.

I was in college and thought Yeungling was the best beer ever. A friend took me to a local brewpub and had me try the IPA. Until then I didn't know you could have so much flavor in beer.

It took living in England for me to really branch out, but that IPA is what pushed me towards the sweet nectar of Guiness, SNPA, bitters, and more.

I still enjoy the occasional Yeungling though.

Probably Shiner and Blue Moon. I know these don't necessarily say a whole lot, but these beers tasted different, and great, compared to keystone and BMC beers I had been drinking up to that point. They got me branching out to different styles, opening up the magical kingdom of beer to me.
