Florida Beer Swamp Ape
I still don't understand why the local bottle shop even stocks it. Blegh
That's fine by me, however what is your choice?
victory donnybrook stout or victory summer love. i do like victory in general though. lionshead is not great by any means, but it's cheap and tasty enough for being an adjunct.
The worse Texas beer by far is Shiner Ruby Redbird. Bock is drinkable and very accurate to the style.
Indigo Imp Gate Keeper
I hate to say anything bad about beer made in WV since there isn't much. However, I was disappointed in Blackwater Brewing's Gold Ale. Their stout was okay, but I don't think it holds up to some of the other WV beers.
Yuengling Black and Tan. Two average tastes that taste terrible together.
Shiner has officially been topped. Have you tried any of fort bend brewing Co's beers on tap? Most disgusting IPA I've ever had, and potentially even the worst beer I've EVER had. I offered to volunteer at the brewery, tasted their beer, and immediately sent an email rescinding my offer to volunteer. Like hell I'm gonna work anywhere that puts out a bad product. I have big hopes for Texian Brewery.
Bocks are strong beers in Germany that must be >16 Plato= 1.064 OG. All malt since they are bottom fermented.
Shiner Bock does not fit into the German Bock category. It is an American Dark Lager in my book. Adjuncts are used, only 4.4% ABV. Might be a Bock on Ba, not in Germany.
Never heard of the beer OR the brewery
Rocky Coulee Brewing Co...
For worst local beer have to go with Genny lite
natty greene's in NC USED to be garbage, but they got a new brewer, prior to about a year or two ago that Weeping Radish was total garbage when the old brewer sabotaged the equipment to get back at the owner, i remember seeing cases of their bombers in everyones house i went to and it was the back up beer for when people ran out of bud light. Now they also have a new brewer who's doing a great job making some solid beers. i think in NC you cant get away with putting out shitty beer for to long, we have to many good options. hell even good breweries have trouble keeping their doors open from competition(i.e. craggie)
The worst beer, in my experience, brewed in Maine, has to be Shipyard's "Pumpkinhead Ale". Tried out the local Greek pizza joint in Thomaston last fall, and the beer choices were for things like Bud Lite, Coors, or Shipyard "Pumpkinhead Ale". I shoulda asked for Bud Lite -- it would have been way better than the Pumpkinhead!
I forgot about Fort Bends IPA. Maybe I just blocked it from my memory, either way it was surprisingly terrible.
I bought a 6 pack of the Atwater Chocolate Ale a while back and choked down one bottle, ruined a batch of chile with another and poured the other 4 down the kitchen sink. If it was made in Illinois it would get my vote. Since it's not I'll go with Finches Golden Wing. Fortunately only a single can was given to me so it was no cost/no reward.
I had the foresight to ask for a taste of it at the saucer first instead of buying a pint.
Potosi's "Good Ol' Potosi."
Big Rock Sour Cherry Tripel. Absolutely love all of their beers, but this was pure acetone. Two sips and I drain poured. Completely nail polish remover. Ugh.
I think that's the lowest "Bros" score I've ever seen.
Rivertown Blueberry Lager when I was in Ohio, worst beer I have ever had.
Have not had any truly awful beers in Oregon yet.
After having Flying Fish's Oktoberfish, I really hesitate to try anything else by them. New Jersey just doesn't produce good beer. I hate it so much.
Thomas hooker American pale ale. Stuff is vile
Live in MA now, but lived in NH for 5 years and I'd nominate anything from Nepenthe (still trying to figure out if their IPA even has hops in it) as the worst in the state. That or Redhook Copperhook. Throwback IPA is also up there, but it might not be so bad if it wasn't billed as an IPA
Unfortunately there are quite a few beers up for this award in the Granite State!
Yeah, I almost feel as though Redhook can be excluded from this as they're barely craft at this point.
For Ohio, I'd say Bud Light Platinum or Bud Select 55 if they're made at Bud's Columbus brewery.
As far as Ohio craft beers go, my first thought was Rivertown Pestilence. But then I checked my ratings and I rated Hoppin' Frog Turbo Shandy even worse. Both are bad.
I'm guessing this has been stated or at least thought by many... New Holland Charkoota. Why NHBC, why?
IL- Anything from Argus
PA. I don't know if it was old or not but Weyerbacher's Hops Infusion was no good when I tried it, but they make very good beer in general (double simcoe)
Clearly, neither of you have had the unfortunate experience of visiting the Italian Oasis in Littleton.
Most anything brewed in Cold Springs MN
Here in Texas, most offerings from Shiner and Rahr.
SA Cherry Wheat was the first beer I ever had. I think I was 15 and visiting my sister at SUNY Oswego for the weekend. I swore off beer for years as a result.
Susquehanna Brewing Co. 6th Generation Stock Ale
Thank you. This has been bothering me since the thread was originally posted. I was too chicken, of course, to say anything--the fear of being banished for persnicketiness, especially since we all know what was meant. Appreciate the way you approached it.
Haven't had a worst in Illinois. Between Two Brothers, Metropolitan, Flossmoor Station, Finch's, and company, I've had a lot of great beer.
I think Nepenthe has some wicked consistency issues myself. I've had the shire stout more than once and enjoyed the hell out of it, but trusted friends with reasonable palettes have had opposite assessments of different batches of the brew. The Lotus Eater DIPA first batch was opaque and ugly, but fresh it was a delight in my glass. Subsequent batches have been mediocre at best. The fresh hop ale they did was a grassy disaster.
That being said, the worst beer in NH award goes to The Italian Oasis Restaurant and Brewpub in Littleton NH. Every beer I've tried is either infected or served from dirty tap lines or is a mediocre homebrew level ale.
I really wanted to post this beer before reading all seven pages before me. I did do a search though, and I'm pretty sure that no one has mentioned, Badass American Lager. Kid Rock's absolute swill disaster. They weren't even trying, not in the least.
That is at least what comes to mind initially.
OK, I am going to need to offer a retraction on this one. I had one last night, second time I have had one. Didnt taste like paint remover this time, it was actually pretty good.
Ale Industries (CA) "This is The Shit that Killed Elvis"...I'm surprised it didn't kill me and my friends..;(
