Idea for this thread came from another thread where a poster said Cantillon would always be nostalgic for him from his time he lived in Belgium. I also saw this thread was posted once before, but it's been over a year so... guess I'm having thread nostalgia. As expected, I'll start... Sam Adams Octoberfest: this one takes me back to the first autumn I got into craft, when I would drink a couple of these out of the bottle while cooking brats and watching College Gameday from the kitchen. This was toward the end of my military days, and I really do miss North Carolina. I never drink Sam Adams the rest of the year, but it's a personal tradition to always buy the fall seasonal 12-pack the first time I see it at the store (in July ). Thirsty Dog Old Leghumper/Molson XXX: I suppose this would be the first craft beer I actually ever had, including the Molson for the same memories though. My step-dad used to give me a couple of these when I was 16 while we were watching movies like Braveheart in the basement. The deal was that I had to hide the bottle behind the recliner if I heard my mom coming downstairs. Sam Adams Old Fezziwig: I'm a bit of a retro video game nerd. I have spent many cold, winter days drinking Old Fezzy and playing Legend of Zelda on NES. Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout: this was the first craft beer I truly loved and fanboyed. Another one that makes me miss North Carolina. Just thinking about it makes me want to get on YouTube and listen to "Wagon Wheel." Go, BA!
