In the beginning there was beer. Lots of beer. And it was good. That was my introduction to beer. It was mostly domestic, besides the occasional Heineken, and almost always just a bland, tasteless brew.
Many years later I was introduced to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and my life was forever changed. Once I started drinking good beer all the rest was simply swill, and I called it such. I can’t say that I never drink a domestic beer from time to time, I do enjoy an ice cold PBR on occasion, but for the most part my taste in beer changed the day I had that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I still consider it my go to beer when the beer selection lacks a punch.
That was my gateway beer to the wonderful world of #craftbeer. Once I had that, there was no turning back. Thank you Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, for the wake up call.
Now, this just begs the question: What was your gateway beer?!
