It was probably a taste of my Dad's West Bend Lithia from West Bend, WI.. First beer I legally bought was probably a Miller High Life and I stuck with that for many years. Back then (the 70's), there was little real selection compared with today. Little did I know what great beers awaited me in the future. I remember how great it was to finally try a Guinness and how exotic it seemed at the time - still a great beer.

I'm sure I probably had a sip or two of my old man's Genny back when I was a wee one. The first beer I *really* remember, though... must have been third or fourth grade. Walking home from the bus stop, we found (miracle of miracles!) two full cans of Budweiser on the side of the road. Must have fallen out of the back of someone's pickup. We took them out in the woods behind the house, hid down in a hole underneath some trees, and drank about a half-beer each. Bleech.

The first beer I recall was a Pilsner at the Hoffbrau House in Munich when I was in 7th or 8th grade. I remember thinking it was terrible. What did I know.

I'm sure it was a nip out of a bottle my Dad was drinking, and I'm also sure I was far too young to remember. Could have been Pabst, Falstaff, Stroh's....any one of half a dozen or eight brands.

Growing up my dad would let me have a sip here and there when he was barbecuing and what not (he wasnt a big beer person and I never paid attention to what it was) but I think the first one I remember drinking was a 4 pack of Quilmes that I bought and drank on the beach in San Juan Puerto rico

You lucky guy, you grew up in a much better time for beer. Lol
