Hard to remember that far back, but it was either Saranac pale ale or Oregon IPA. But these were among the beers that I started out drinking. Rarely drank BMC in my younger days, only when it was the only option at a party and/or when the main goal was getting toasted. Now I don't think I ever drink BMC, unless its an ice cold PBR on a hot day, and PBR is all that's available.

Heh, mine was Don de Dieu, but have since moved to enjoy La fin du monde more so.

It was homebrew of a friend that got me away from bigger commercial beers and really provided that "wow beer can be awesome" moment. Also, I had goodlife brewing company's descender IPA early this year and that finally got me interested in IPA in more hop character.

I had a few different American Lite beers before a friend gave me a bench capper and I started Homebrewing. I've been trying different craft beers ever since. So for me Homebrewing turned me on to craft beer.

I think Newcastle was the one that really turned me around on beer. Sierra Nevada completed the transformation for me.

Schlalfy oatmeal stout and Court Avenue casked porter. The latter led me to join my 1st mug club.

I was pretty much a Bud Light only drinker in college. I picked up a sixer of Stella on a whim and it opened my eyes a bit. It took me a while to appreciate and then enjoy hoppy beers. Sierra Nevada really completed the transformation. I remember trying Sierra in college and thinking it was disgustingly bitter, and now it's not bitter enough...

Becks Oktoberfest was the first beer I became "obsessed" with and had to have copious amounts of. One year I think I spent a few hundred dollars buying 12 packs of it knowing it only was released once a year. The beer that got me into brewing though was DFH and the DFH Alehouse here in Falls Church. I got tired of not being able to get some of the harder to come by DFH releases so I figured I would try brewing clones.
