At the end of September 2008, I was rewarded with a ticket to Charlotte Oktoberfest. At that time the best beer I had ever drank was Newcastle and I regularly drank Bud Light. Needless to say, I was completely blown away by the range of beer and thankfully realized my previous ignorance. When I tried Gulden Drak, I shit my pants. Itís been about six months since that bittersweet afternoon and Iíve thought about beer ever since. I love all styles of beer as long as they are beers brewed for quality and not "drinkability." I found this website early on in my journey and have used it for nearly every purchase of beer I have made. I usually buy various styles at the store and choose which ones to drink based off of what mood Iím in or my drinking strategy for the night.
