    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 :)

    First beer.

    My first ever beer was a Heineken, I thought it looked like it would taste better than Bud... I'm not sure I was wrong, but it still didn't taste good!

    My first good beer was The Troegenator. I still love it to this day and like to drink it out of a bottle from time to time, to recapture the memory.

    Milwaukee's Best.

    I was 19, I had 2 cans, and I was stumbling around and acting like an idiot for several hours. There is no way I was actually drunk; I think I was faking it to try and fit in.

    The first beer that I remember was a Guinness (a rather skunky one too...turned me away from drinking for a couple of years). I drank a couple before that (probably Busch Light, but I can't say for sure), but none made much of an impact.

    1966 - Schlitz in a can prior to "Pop Top's". Thank god someone had invented the can opener.

    Coors Light. My dad's favorite beer, which he let me try when I was growing up. ...I thought I hated beer for the longest time.

    Probably Schlitz. It had to be Schlitz. That is what the old man drank when I was a kid. Then it was Busch. I remember my first "craft beer" was Shoenling Little Kings Cream Ale around 1976 or so when I was in high school.

    It was probably Michelob. My dads favorite beer until I taught him better. Now his favorite is Founders Backwoods Bastard.
