I remember gravitating to beer early. In college (Hook em Horns), my roommate and I would hunt for anything that wasn't domestic. In the late 90's that generally meant imports. So he and I drank our way through everything we could find at Bennigans (best import list in Austin at the time) and then The Gingerman.

I have been a first hand participant and witness to the change in the industry and I cannot wait to see it where it goes from here.
