I am proudly from Beer City USA! I am a beer connoisseur!
I believe the event that most turned me on to craft beer happened something like this... It was the early 90's I was in Mountain View, California wandering through a parking lot absolutely full of people. Most of these people were saying, yelling or even singing a sort of sales pitch. The most memorable deliveries were these two, "icy cold imports, one for two, two for three" or "icy cold Sierra Nevada's". Needless to say, I fell in love with Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale.

“Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain —
Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
