Our country was built on beer. Our forefathers loved the stuff in all forms and much of our history is based on the quest for and the love of this beverage. I no longer partake in it but there was a time when I couldn't get enough of it. To this day there is nothing that sounds better after mowing the lawn than a ice cold brewski.

Do you remember the first time you tasted a beer? I know I was a little boy in my parents basement. I would go around the bar in the basement after my parents would have a party and finish the bottles that were laying around just to taste it and pretend I was at the party. Beer was a big deal at our house. I remember when Coors was only available in Colorado and if you had a friend who was coming through Colorado you would give them some extra bucks to pick up some Coors for you. Dad would protect those cans like they were holy water. I would have to say I was around 6 or 7 when I got my first taste of barley pop and Todd has never tried it at all. How old were you when you first tried beer?
