One of the most widely asked questions I get is, “How did get interested in craft beer?” or “What was the first craft beer you drank?” The first time I drank craft beer was Sam Adams Double Bock at a party in 1991 among college friends. Although it was different from the typical domestic beer, I did not try another craft until 1998 when I visited the Tun Tavern in Atlantic City, NJ. The restaurant is located across from the NJ Transit Rail Station and since I was about an hour earlier from boarding a train, I stopped in and was officially introduced to India Pale Ale. Similar to the Sam Adams Double Bock I consumed years ago, the alcohol content was significantly higher than domestic beers; however, this was more enjoyable. As a result, I was attracted to the IPA style of craft beer and did not try another brand until 2007 at the Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival when I stopped by the Flying Fish Brewing table. It was at that point that I realized I could enjoy an IPA closer to home. Over the past 10 years, I have been fortunate enough to attend beer festivals in Philly, Atlantic City, New York City, Boston and Denver. In addition, I did extensive research on craft beer during graduate school and wrote numerous papers on breweries and craft beer styles.
