I don't remember my first LEGAL beer. I was being served at the Cape Cod Cafe in Brockton at 16. The legal drinking age was 18 then.
I would always volunteer to go pick up the family pizza's and have one or two while waiting. Come to think of it, that may be where I had my first legal beer because I kind of remember asking the bartender for a free beer for my 18th birthday. He was pissed but had a good laugh. I enlisted in the Army the following week.

I'm pretty sure my first legal beer was also at the same place as my first illegal beer, the Cask'n'Flagon on Hunntington Ave at Northeastern University. I was 17, didn't turn 18 until Dec. and my college ID got me in back then. My last legal beer before they raised the drinking age to 20 1 month after I was legal and it was not grandfathered, was in Abington at the bowling alley on Rt 18 by the High School. It's been so long I forget, was it named squires loft or something, the bowling alley was timber lanes I think.

I was 19 when they dropped the drinking age from 21 to 18 so suddenly , I was legal. We went down to the Hillside Cafe in Cumberland and drank pitchers of Bud. These were the nice big pitchers too , not the 6 inch tall ones you see today. That was a big night as growing up occasions go.

I think a pitcher of Bud was about $2 or $3.

The local drinking near my home was not a big factor as my parents were not cool about drinking too much. However the 18 year drinking age resulted in a huge increase in the frequency of drinking in college. Everyone in college , including the girls were suddenly able to drink. The school pub went from 100 square feet to about 3000 square feet and it was an almost every night affair. 25 cent bottles of Miller lasted for about a year (many times drafts were Slimey Dimeys--10cents for 12 OZ ) . A room full of hundreds of girls your age and 25 cent bottled beers for everyone. Man those were the days!

Bad Canstadtter Volksfest, Stuttgart, Germany, September 1983, I was 15, snuck out and went to the fest against father's permission - got grounded. First of many groundings after drinking legally.

Coors (imported from Wyoming as it was only available in the Rocky Mountain states) @ISU. My roommate would bring back 10 cases from his deer hunting forays to WY.

Note that the legal drinking age was 18, I was 20 or 21 as back then I HATED beer! I remedied that situation quickly and now BOTTOMS UP!

Pretty sure mine would have been at 12:05AM on Welch Avenue in Ames and it was probably a Long Island Ice Tea

Since the thread is 1st beer: did you down a beer before or after the LIIT?

It's more than likely there was beer drank before, although I can't say if it would have been between midnight and going out for the evening. After? Hmmm, quite possibly.

All I can say is thank god all we had were basic American lagers back then.

More than Likely....though I really can't remember, it was a San Miguel.

I turned 21 in Cadiz Spain and that was the beer of choice there back then.

I remember drinking a lot of Rum that night too....me and a buddy had a room that overlooked a Topless beach....$16 a night. we sat on the balcony during the day relaxing, enjoying the sights, and drinking rum and cokes....then hit the bars when it got dark.

You're right about the Squires Loft at Timber Lanes. I'm pretty sure it's still there. Me and my buddies used to go there with fake ID's when we were 19 or 20 and bowl and drink on Sunday nights during the summer.

I used to get served at The Lincoln in Brockton when I was 20 without an ID. That place was pretty scary, but we were too stupid to realize it at the time.

I'm pretty sure my first legal beer was at the Piccadilly Filly in Salem or the Porthole in Lynn. I know I was at both places the night of my 21st b-day, but can't remember in what order. I remember Rufus the bouncer at the Filly being pissed at me because I had been going in there for over a year and drinking before I turned 21.

Spent Many a night at the Pisshole......I used to frequent all the dive bars in Lynn.

Crystal Grill in Lynn would serve you as long as you had a pulse.

Lynn was an Underage Drinkers Paradise.....I remember spending New Years Eve when I was 16 at the Charlie Horse on the Lynnway.....

Mine would have been at a bar in Killington that I can't remember the name of, long gone now. I think it is now the inn of six mountains? I had been drinking there since the beginning of the ski season anyways.
