I started out as a BMC only drinker, until a friend of mine introduced me to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I still remember my first sip, I thought it was some of the oddest stuff I had ever tried. I honestly didn't like it. He told me to finish my bottle, so I did. By the end I wasn't hating it as much. He got it again about a week later, and let me try it again. I wasn't excited, but I realized that I enjoyed it much more, and actually had another bottle after the first one. About a week after that, I got a six pack of it. And today, it's my favorite beer. Did any of you folks have similar experiences?
