Worst commercial or craft beer you've had?
« on: March 26, 2008, 08:12:42 PM »
Ok,
  So what is the worst commercial/craft beer (non-homebrew) you have ever tried?

  Mine was some kind of cheap malt liquor in college (don't recall the name, but still remember the terrible taste).

Cheers,
Brad

A long time ago way back in history, when all there was to drink was nothing but cups of tea, along came a man by the name Charlie Mops and he invented a wounderfull drink and he made it out of hops. He ought to be Admiral, a Sultoun, or a King, and to his prasies we shall alwas sing.

The worst beer I have ever had was in College. Pabst Ice back when ice beers were popular.  I bought a 30 pack and took me forever to drink.  I had some underage guests of my roommate who stole one and couldn't finish it.  You know it is bad beer when an 19 year old won't drink it.  I also remember Olympia I bought once for .99 a 6-pack was pretty bad. 

Never really had a bad craft brew.  Some are not my style but most are decent.

I ordered a sampler from a now defunct brewpub,  everything from a light lager to a stout,  There was NO taste differential, none.

A few come to mind...

Celis White: It was years ago when this turkey first came out. I read a glowing review in Bon Apetit and ran out and bought a 6'er for more than anyone should have paid for 6x12 at that time. Took it to a party and couldn't GIVE the other 5 bottles away. Put me off Belgian Bilge (ale) for years.

Fat Tire: Again, my apologies to the Belgian fans but I wouldn't wash my jock in this stuff. In fact, it tastes like I did.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA: Just recently was fleeced into paying the better part of a Tom Jefferson for 6x12 of this filth. (I was outside Philly and times were tough.) They claim to be the finest craft brewery in Delaware. Well it IS a VERY small state, isn't it? I think they put dogfish IN THE BEER. The hottest food at an Indian restaurant in University City couldn't kill the gym shoe after taste of this trub water.

Oh. And Corona. Afer a few pints some day, I'll tell you how I became associated with this plonk in my motorcycle circle. Just plain Bud-nasty. Mexicans should know better.

I agree with Fat Tire.

I love Belgians but that is no Belgian.  It is just a bad Amber :P

I don't know the distribution of Fat Tire, but when I lived in Boulder I loved the stuff.  That of course was before I started brewing and I haven't tried it since, so I may have a different opinion if I tried it again (I also liked Molson Ice at the time).
And now that I'm on the East Coast I haven't tried a Dogfish Head that I didn't like, though I haven't tried the 90 min IPA, I just brew my own.
Like most homebrewers I'm no fan of the "American Lager" style that includes such abominations as Coors, Bud, Miller...
While I will say that our local Shipyard Export is overrated, the same company makes a Fuggle IPA that is to die for.

I know I sound harsh on Belgian ales and I really don't mean to be. I learned to brew in SE Michigan (nobody says they live in Detroit in polite company) and it was Belgian territory. We even had a bar with authentic feather bowling lanes!

I'm sorry. I'm a creatin. I just don't really see what the big deal is. I can drink a Chimay and appreciate it. (I got a bottle of Chimay Premiere at TJ's for $12 for my brew partner to try. He drank it. Looked at me and said, "You paid HOW much for this stuff?) But I don't really like it. I like really light, really strong, really crisp and really hoppy - what my brew partner calls "in your face, party in your mouth" ales. I think the style now is called "Californial Pale Ale."

Lots of people don't like my beers. Too bitter, too foamy, too strong, "Ew... It kind of tastes like grapefruit at the end." (I work HARD to get that grapefruit finish, thankyouverymuch!)

I'm not offended. I don't like to share. ;)
