    Buffalo Bill's Blueberry Oatmeal Stout. I'm pretty tolerant when it comes to beers, including fruit ones. That stuff is horrible.

    A pepper? That looks like a damn decomposing finger. Fingernail on it and all.

    I could never host one, I like my friends. :D I have been to many of my relatives (get together there not really parties) have and its bud & bud lite lime for the win. I BYOB if I go. I try not to go.:p
  6. Wild Blue beer is one of the only times my body physically rejected somthing I put in it. I swallowed and it came right back up. Putrid...

    That being said, I really like the idea of doing a "Bad Beer Tasting". Everyone has a few bottles that they are sitting on becasue they have heard/read bad things. I know I do.

    I don't remember seeing Special Brew on that label. Special" must be a new word for heinous... Think beer and tomato juice is kind of a common "prepared beer" depending on where you are, but Clamato by itself is just...well..."special"...

    If you can still get your hands on Delirium Noel, it was, in one word, vile. BA reviews have as just OK, but I'm pretty sure that you could use it to torture prisoners instead of water boarding.

    Those Micheladas dont look too bad next to that Sam Adams, but I am sure the cranberry is much better than their cherry wheat. I am not certain but I imagine Cherry Wheat and chit taste a lot alike!!

    I would have "infected beers" at my tasting, I've had 2009 Abyss, & 2012 Peruvian morning and these have been some of my all-time favorites!! Maybe I just got lucky tho!

    Just grab one out of each of the 6's that I don't recognize the name of at Trader Joe's
  13. Not as bad as I was expecting. Still the best pizza beer I have had to date...

    I recommend Mikkeller's Black Hole Peat Whiskey Edition. It is offensive in ways that words fail to communicate.​
  15. My first thought as well, glad someone else has gone through this misery.

    Having just had Idiot's Drool, it is an absolute requirement. And I'm told it's somehow gotten worse over time.

  18. Funny thing is I had a cask version where the ginger was minimal and it was ok, I tried a can once though...

  19. I really like the simplicity of the can, but that beer is BAD!

    Enjoy

    Off topic, but don't give up on trying peanut butter beers. A guy in our hb club brewed one that was the hit of the last meeting. We all, myself included, plan to try our hands at it now. Delicious. No banana in it though.

    And OP, if you want to make this easy, just have the tasting at Gilded Otter in New Paltz, NY, and order anything.

  25. Agreed. There are quite a few good/great Peanut Butter beers out there. Definitely don't give up on them due to Rogue's poor efforts at it.
  26. Wow, the Otter sure has declined, hasn't it?

    Rogue Chiptole Ale, that is just awful in so many ways.

    Don't have a strictly bad beers tasting. Do a good beer-bad beer tasting instead where you alternate. It will help calm the murderous rage building from drinking so many truly awful beers consecutively.
  29. Phoenix Ale Company - Any. Somehow this poison is served at our D-backs games.

    Throw Old World Brewering beers on that list as well.

    Here's a partial shot of my old beer can collection. The Giant Food Premium Beer came out at the time that generic brands were becoming popular (early 80's). I didn't have a very sophisticated palate then, but I knew enough to drain pour this after a sip or two.

  31. Agreed. I feel like this sounds like a good idea on paper, but after the second or third one, I seriously doubt I'd have any desire to continue.

    How is his join date at all relevant to the matter? He's got more posts than you in 1/4 the amount of time strengthen your e-muscles brah.
  33. Yup, Wild Blue. It's beyond awful.
  34. Midnight sun Treat- so many on the shelves here they should give the rest away so I don't have to look at them anymore

    I used to enjoy their beer before the owner cheaped out, and now it is just awful. Food's still good though.
  37. It just goes to show that you can't fool all the people all of the time. How did the owner cheap out?

    Agree with both of these comments.. I love the Neapolitan Milk Stout, and couldn't take more than 2 sips of the Charkoota Rye. Worst. beer. ever.

    Pretty confused why there would be a party for the purpose of intentionally tasting bad beer.
