    Can't remember when but definitely Schlitz because it is all my Dad drank for the longest time. First beer I ever bought myself was probably the Fosters oil can. It went downhill for quite some time during those dark ages....thankfully I was enlightened.

    I'm pretty sure you can get a 6'er for about what they cost then - they made so much and it was so shitty that most people just hung onto them. You can still see people TRYING to get rid of them for hundreds!

    Miler light when i was just a lad... not the best tasting but holds a special place in my heart.

    Dundee Honey Brown. I had a choice between that and Corona. I thought it was pretty good. Then I went down hill and started drinking Icehouse and Rolling Rock.

    Budweiser. 6th grade. Buddy in the 7th kept it hidden and chilled in a creek behind his house. As I was bringing the can to my mouth, I was picturing women in bikinis and people by the hundreds in extreme happiness like the commercials had promised. The golden glory was about to happen! And when it did, it was the cruelest joke tv had ever played on me. I can't even imagine the face I must have made. Didn't take another sip of beer until the 11th grade (Coors Light), then not another until I was 22 (Newcastle). Things changed after that.

    Snuck some of my dad's Natty Bo when I was little. As good going down as into the diaper.

    Coors light. Hit a home run as an 11-year-old Little Leaguer, stepfather's father gave me a sip after the game to celebrate. I pounded half the can. Even as a child, I felt nothing.

    First beer was likely sips of Dad's Budweiser back as a kiddo. First actual beer that I can recall drinking specifically was Rogue's Shakespeare Stout on a camping trip senior year of High School.

    I was 18 and a freshman at Defiance College in Defiance Ohio. I bonged a coors light November 11, 2000. I actually got my parents to switch from Busch Light to Coors Light, now they drink Keystone Light. First craft beer would have been Sam Adams Boston Lager

    A nicely cellared 10 year old can of busch light I found in my grandpas basement bar on a shelf as a kid. Thinking back, I have no idea how I was able to give beer another chance.

    Pfeiffer. That's all my Dad drank back then and I was about 10. I'd love to try another one now and see if it's as good as I remember it (but I can't and I'm sure it wouldn't be anyway).

    Second would be Stag - that was my Grandfather's lifelong beer.

    First beer ever? I'm not sure what it was, I was about 6 or 7, 4th of July barbecue at my house, saw a red cup on the porch, thought it was soda. Spat it out.
    First beer drank on purpose? Labatt Blue. Old Labatt Blue.
    First craft beer? Stoudt's Gold Lager.

    Probably a Miller or Budweiser when I was a toddler. Loved drinking my parents' beers:wink:

    Glad to see I'm not nearly the only one who had crappy beer at a young age. Mine was a 40 of Budweiser, age 13.

    Nearly, but the numerous McDonalds cheeseburgers that followed may have saved me.

    Probably around 1957 and I remember well. I was with my grandad and old my pointer, Mike. My parents and brother were gone. I was in his charge and we were thrashing around my parent's property, ostensibly looking for brush to thin. I was around 6 and he was glad everyone was gone so that he could regale me with tales of California. As we were moving through a huge bank of deep moss beneath now huge hemlocks, he pulled a Budweiser from his bag of tricks and said, "this'll surely not be your last of these", and we drained his St. Louis nectar. The rest is history. The old rascal even looked like Samuel Clemens.

    Not sure what it was but pretty sure I thought the beer had gone bad.

    First sip of beer was at a fair. I think it was a BMC crap. My dad gave it to me, must have been all of 8 years old. My first real beer was a Miller High Life in high school. My first craft beer was Sam Adams Boston lager. First beer that changed my life was Heady Topper!!!

    Bud Light. I was a freshman in high school. It tasted like the water that had been rung out of a wet gym sock. I thought I hated beer for the next five years until I tried a Guinness in college. That's when I discovered there was more to beer than BMC garbage.

    Stag has always been my #1 AAL, and my first AAL; Fishing trip with my uncles and grandpa. Brings back the memory every time I see it in the store. Still have a few every year at get-togethers, and the occasional $1 longneck.

    My dad used to let me take sips of his. It was usually Schmidt's. First craft was Pete's Wicked Lager.

    Probably not much... even to this day my hometown has a dearth of good beer, I have to go to the next town over to find anything decent.

    We raided the beer tub of my friend's parents' Halloween party in 9th grade and took a couple Sam Adams Boston Lagers and Boston Ales. Took turns chugging them - both my buddies and I hated them and thought they were too bitter. After that it was a lot of shitty beer, vodka, and rum... woof, high school. Looking back that was actually a pretty good beer to pop my beer cherry

    You're not alone there :slight_frown:
    I live in the outer suburbs of a pretty big metro (St. Louis) and while my town has one pretty good bottle shop (Inside of a BP gas station no less; about 60 different singles to mix and maybe 20 bombers on hand), I have to head 20 miles into the city to get my hands on new releases.

    I had sips of Schlitz with my father when I was very young. My first full beer was Miller High Life when I was 13, courtesy of my brother.

    Molson Ice. I was like 14/15 years old, friends parents out of town and his older sister bought us beer. Drank something like seven beers and puked everywhere.

    The first beer I ever tried was a teaspoon of my dad's Budweiser when I was 7 years old. I hated it and didn't really like beer at all until I started making beer burgers with whatever was in the fridge. Ah good times.
