    I got into beer in the early 2000s when I moved in next door to a brewpub in Princeton, NJ... Which my roommate (and best friend) owned! Up until then, beer to me meant 30 packs of whatever was cheap. This was when I was in college and before craft brew was widely available. My brew buddy, however, opened my eyes to the world of great beer. In fact, a week after I moved in, we all took a spontaneous trip to Belgium. He sat me down at the Kulminator in Antwerp and put this unlabeled bottle in my hands. Yup. Westvleteren 12. Can you believe this is the beer that sealed the deal for me? Talk about sentimental value. Washing it down with plenty of Palm, Duvel, Chimay, and Leffe didn't hurt, either. At the brewpub, I got to learn about how beer is made and sample basically all the major styles that exist from their rotating taps. Fast forward a decade and change, and I'm now a beer obsessive. I've found that beer has even added an unexpected dimension to travel. Even places I would previously have found boring (i.e. Delaware) have become appealing... Because everywhere you go now, they make their own beer. So much for that wine appreciation class I took in college! In addition to beer, I am also fanatical about sake.
