So, I was just wondering if anyone here remembers the beer that turned you into a "beer guy (or girl)." For me, it was Sam Adams Octoberfest. I was just thinking about this because I just picked up a six-pack tonight. I remember for years that beer meant a bottle of Bud, or Guinness if I was feeling exotic.
I had tried a bunch of different foreign beers like Heineken, St. Paulie Girl, Beck's, etc... but when I had that first Octoberfest, I was like "Whoa! This is beer?!?! It's so good!" Well, anyway, I'm pretty sure not too many people started drinking really good craft beer, I'm sure most of us started drinking the same typical light lagers, so I just wanted to know what beers turned you all from macro beer drinkers into beer aficionados.
