    Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown. Fucking amazing in the taproom, found it in bottles. Worst $17 spent. I can't even bring myself to trade it, I feel like I would be ripping someone off.

    I regret buying any new beer that made me say meh.

    Meh is not bad. Drinkable, but boring and not really enjoyable. I have drank plenty of meh beers. I regret all of them!

    Never experienced a drain pour. Hope I won't have to do that any time soon! *knock on wood*

    At least I read enough reviews to know which beers to stay away from.

    Infinium, Rogue's Voodoo Donut beers are disgusting and expensive. So much regret there.

    Actually, I changed my mind. I forgot about Samuel Adams Merry Mischief. Almost wanted to put it aside because Hardywood Gingerbread Stout was my first experience. Hard to forget your first time.

    unthinkable? I loved that beer! It was so out of the box, and even though it says cucumber, for it to actually taste like cucumber, it was great

    I've got two, Great Divide Old Ruffian, a buddy and me split a bottle with the $28+, was so disappointed. My drain pour would have to be Southern Tier Cuvee Series Three, just terrible

    I typically don't buy too many of anything until I know I like it, but did screw up this past summer. I bought two six packs if Bell's Oberon just based on some recommendations and the fact that I'm only able to get when in KC. I didn't like it very much and then was stuck having to finish 11 more.

    i totally agree. i'm wondering if there will ever be a beer i like that they make. considering that they seem to produce some type of new swill every month, i give them credit for never giving up, but i'm done with spending any more money on them. most of them taste like that fat guy on their commercial's beard must smell.

    Chalk up another NO vote for Infinium.

    And I'd say the Four Calling Birds that blew its cork and nearly took my eye out ( I think there's still a mark on the ceiling from where it hit ), but I did get my money back for that one, so never mind.

    Didn't purchase but was given by a friend who bought one for each of us.. Point is HE regrets purchasing and we both regret opening..

    I was really excited when my beer store had this on the shelf.
    Bought it without hesitation.
    Smelled and tasted the same....not really good, but couldn't figure it out.
    Checked some reviews here and.........yep.....smelled and tasted like

    Plastic Bandaids.......yuck.

    I guess that's what 'funk' is.;)

    Frangelic Mountain Brown, Voodoo Maple Bacon Ale, and Southern Tier Creme Brulee. These should never have made it to the market.

    Five golden rings was legit the worst beer I've had this year on tap and in bottle. Such a surprise given that 4 calling birds was pretty delicious.

    no our palates are just all different. I liked merry mischief, but I also just finished a Madame rose which I also liked. trying cherry tomorrow...

    But i did buy a voodoo doughnut last week just to see what all the hating fuss was about...

    Rogue Morimoto Soba, but probably just because it turned out I don't like soba, the beer itself is well-crafted. Same with the Stone Belgo Anise Imperial Stout.

    I wanted to try the voodoo doughnut and if they took it down to half price I probably would.

    I haven't yet but if I do I will. I've had their Lager, Honey Porter, Octoberfest, Blackberry Witbier, Cherry Wheat, and Double Bock so far and one other that came in a triangleish (like that word?) bottle a few years ago in Maine. However, for my tastes you could put a Mr. Yuck sticker on any one of those.

    My problem with them now I'm so gun shy I usually won't pick up a new beer by them.
