My first beer was mass produced in N.Y. My dad was a Rheingold drinker. It was "the beer that made New York famous" or so they said.

But I have to admit it was New Castle Brown that got me to stop drinking BMC. An English friend brought a 6 pack to an after hike party and I was hooked on ALEs.

I always had a taste for something a step up from the BMC, although if i'm lookin to party and drink a 30 in a day it's still the fall back for various reasons, I had always thought Sam was the "good stuff." I don't remember what specific beer it was, probably along the lines of a DFH or Stone as I drank a ton of that when I found it, but I do remember that my eyes were opened to a whole new world of beer. For a long while I only drank brands I had never heard of in the quest to find more, even greater things.

for me it was sam adams octoberfest on draft.
I wanted bud light and was somehow convinced to try the octoberfest.
I instantly fell in love. I remember thinking I didnt know beer could taste this good.

Sprecher Black Bavarian. I had no idea beer was anything other than disgusting fizzy yellow stuff at the time.
I set out running but I take my time.

Long time go, it was Arrogant bastard/Dead guy/SN pale ale, then local microbrews/or could have been microbrews first ,had a gap of not really drinking much and watching weight/session drink light beers ocassionally only as a get drunk delivery device. Started learning about fermentation, was always learning about health,made kefir/kombucha/sauercrout. Then discovered live beer(unpasturized) seeked some out. Had a SN Hefeweizen-was inspired by its taste and then it was on to more unpasterized beers then on to discovering that I could make fermented beer myself. Turns out now though hefeweizens are pretty low now on my likability scale.

I can still remember it like it was yesterday, I was a bright eyed Busch light drinking youth, you were a hazy boulevard wheat. We met at a local old Chicago, a mutual friend introduced us. You changed my life, I lost contact with those friends but I will never forget you.
