I had the opportunity to reach the drinking age while the craft and micro-brew revolution was in full swing. Many a great and unique beers were made during this time, some of which I had the opportunity to sample. One was made with the spice cardamom. Tasted it in Estes Park, CO I believe. 'Wolf Whacker Wheat' may have been its name.
Being situated in Boulder, CO for this period was sheer luck and though my education and liver suffered many a great beer and keg were had.
I even made my own; not great, but good with a high ABV.
Great beers now gone with the craft brewing revolution.
This is the way of things.
One of my hopes, though, is that the Golden City Brewery in Golden, CO is still open. They made a great barley wine and a specialty cherry ale that was (hopefully is still) unbeatable.
Oh, and I once enjoyed chess, Jung, and the Three-Fold Path (Ch'an or Zen Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism) from an academic standpoint.
