    Dominion Oak Barrel Stout. What crap that was. On the plus side, my lady liked it, and now she's (sort of) into stouts. Only good thing I can say about that stuff.

    I hated myself after taking the first sip of Brux from the great minds of Russian River/Sierra Nevada. I was expecting something big and bold. The Sour homebrew we opened up next to it blew it out of the water.

    Rouge VooDoo donut, and Stone 16th aniversary IPA (Yuck!)
    Also I didnt feel the westy 12 was worth the price of the 6 pack, I will stick to Roeshfort

  8. Hel & Verdoemnis Bordeaux BA. HOOOOOOOOOOLY was that not worth the money. As I bought it brewery fresh. Yeesh. I'm sure it only cost like 7 euro, but damn was that a let down.
     
  9. I can honestly say I don't have any regrets about any of the beer I've purchased. Sure, there have been a few I've been less than pleased with, but how would I know that otherwise? There are also some cases where the first (or second or third) bottle didn't do anything for me, but then I opened one when I was in the right mood and really enjoyed it (and made a note of when that was for purposes of enjoying the rest of the six). Seriously, for most beers, you're paying at most $12/sixer. A small price to pay for the knowledge that results. (OK, I will admit some bombers can turn into pretty expensive experiments, especially if they're failed experiments.)

    I agree with LCB_Hostage that I don't regret any purchases... with one exception: I didn't check the date on something by Sierra Nevada I bought at some little dive convienence store while I was driving through a remote mountain west area. That stuff was so old I could have taken it on Antique Roadshow. Nasty.

    when i first saw Southern Tier 2XMAS last December i scoffed up a 6 pack somehow thinking it would be darker winterier version of 2XIPA not realizing what a overspiced mess it would be, just not my thing, still got 4 of the 6 in the fridge

  21. Probably Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut. Not so much because I hated it (I thought it was okay, but honestly not worth the price), but because I was stupid and had my BMC friends try it and now they talk more about the bacon beer that I had them try than any quality craft beers that I've had them try.

  25. Smuttynose Zinneke. Label said it was a Belgian style stout, and it was maybe $7-8 so I grabbed one. Pretty disappointing. Schenkerla Aecht Rauchbier as well. I was reading about traditional German rauchbiers in a book and decided to try one. It smelled and tasted like smoked meat. If someone had blindfolded you and held it under your nose you'd think you were smelling barbeque. I wouldn't say I regret buying either, because I'm down for trying new beers (whether good or bad), but I would never purchase either again.

    A lightstruck bottle of Saison Fantome. Green bottles strike fear to the core of my being now.

  28. Rouge Voodoo.
    13 bucks gone.
    Could have been a nice 12pack that I would have enjoyed all week.
    But no.
    My dumb ass didn't listen to reason, and I said to myself, "I dont need help, I can drink this whole bottle myself"
    Nope.
    Drank a whole 16oz glass of it. Poured another 16 oz glass, there was still more in the bottle.
    I said no, just no.
    Drainpoured the 2nd glass and also what was left in the bottle, opened a new beer to get that taste out of my mouth.
    The taste of failure.

    Moose Drool Brown Ale - Big Sky Brewing Company.
    Dunno why it was so long ago and one of the first Craft beers I had tried at the time. All I remember was thinking boy they sure got the name right.

    May have to give it another chance if I can find it in a mix 6 sometime. now that my palate is a bit more refined.

    I drain poured 11.11.11 too. One of the few non-infected beers I've ever done that too.
