    A classic rite of passage beerking, a father giving his son that first full bottle of beer.

    I see your location. It would have been a bottle of Chief Oshkosh if it was distributed in our area! I have never had that beer, because I was 3 months old when we moved out of WI.

    Was raised in Wausau, WI then went to school at UW Eau Claire so my early beer drinking years were taken up with the likes of Old Style, Special Export, Stite, Walters, Old Timers, Bub's, Leinenkugels, Chippewa Pride, Gettleman, $1,000 Beer, Blatz, etc.

    Chief Oshkosh went out of business when my beer drinking was in its infancy and can't remember sampling any way back then.

    What I do remember was '$.50 Schlitz Malt Liquor' (12oz.) night at a local beer bar which was a cheap buzz that catered to the male constituency. To keep the female patrons happy the bar owner would sell a bottle of Champale for the same price as long as you bought the 'Bull' at the same time. Needless to say it was not uncommon to find over-indulgers in the parking lot doing the Technicolor Yawn.

    I thought someone had resurrected the C.O. name.

    When I lived in the Bahamas there was a bar which served either pink Champale or Colt 45. The record player would usually play Clarence Carters Strokin'. Great nights, lousy mornings. Oooh my head!!!

    I live in Southern Oregon about four hours away from the Deschuttes Brewery, so I am with the OP! Mirror Pond pale ale is my very favorite. I play in a band and am lucky enough to get to drink free most weekends. If they don't have Mirror Pond, I will usually order a Sierra Nevada.

    Beerking, I too thought C.O. was going to make a come back as I remember overhearing a conversation some time ago to that effect. Might have been speculation but thought the LaCrosse brewery was going to make a stab at it.

    Always a great question, though I think the answer is often changing for many of us. There's so much variety when it comes to beer that it's hard to pick just one...

    For the sake of the question I'm going to go with Three Floyds Alpha King American Pale Ale. From nose to finish this beer blew my mind and showed me a shimmer of what beer can be. Some equally great runners-up include Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron, Metropolitan Krankshaft Kölsch, and Guinness Draught.

    Going with the situation theme here...I love a Natural Light tall boy when I am playing disc golf. They seem to get better when I get to the 3rd or 4th one in my disc bag and they are approaching lukewarm. During a normal drinking session this stuff never makes it to the table, but out at the park they feel like the perfect beer.

    Schlenkerla Rauchbier (Marzen), straight from the wooden barrel, at Schlenkerla, of course.

    I would have to say that one of the best beers I ever tasted was my first batch of homebrew.
