    I grew up on the East Coast but fell in love with beer out West. During an internship with the Student Conservation Association during college I was introduced to the world of microbrews. Up to that point my favorite beer was Budweiser served in a bottle. Most often I drank Keystone Ice or Busch. During a routine shopping trip in Nevada my friend took a detour to the beer isle to grab a sixer. When I saw the selection that they were offering in all that beautiful packaging my heart swelled. I had never seen such variety. My friend noticed my intrigue as I paced up and down the isle reading each and every label and trying to discern the pronunciations of those exotic beauties. When I came to my friend was holing a six pack of New Belgium Fat Tire. "This is a good place to start" he said. I will forever be grateful to him and the New Belgium Brewery. I am still developing my palette and very much consider myself an apprentice of the beer advocate lifestyle. After that summer in Nevada I have since been hard pressed to find anyone else who shares in my love for craft beer. That was until I stumbled across BA. After years of isolation an an arduous pilgrimage I have found my place. I am home!
