I remember gravitating to beer early. In college (Hook em Horns), my roommate and I would hunt for anything that wasn't macro. 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. We were at Bitter End, Lovejoy's and Copper Tank every chance we could get. I have been a first hand participant and witness to the change in the Austin beer scene and I cannot wait to see it where it goes from here.
