    Pliny the Younger. Once, I walked into a bar and got a glass without any issue. Pure luck. I will never likely be in the right place and time for that to happen again.

    Any Stone IPA/DIPA. I just had Best By 12/21/12. It was my last hope for them to make something that I liked and it was an unbalanced mess. I suppose they were a pioneer in the style, but I feel like they are lost way behind, now.

    Lagunitas Gnarlywine. I enjoy a lot of their beers... but not this one.

    To add to the list I posted a while back:

    Avery Ale to the Chief - luckily I only got a 4 oz. pour or I would have drain poured it

    Agree with the first two but anything from southern tier??? That's insanity. ST creme brûlée is bad but most of their offerings are fantastic!

    thats pretty unfair criticism, the well built esb from breckenridge is damn good, and tommyknocker's maple brown, butthead bock, and cocoa porter are all tasty beers in the right context. i agree all have weak offerings too, but dont throw the whole brewery under the bus

    A lot will disagree with this one, but Bell's Two Hearted is one of the worst things I've ever tasted.

    It's like ripping a handful of dandelions out of the ground and eating them. Gross.

    Friend,

    I have a great suggestion, if i may?

    I will send you, free of charge, a capper and case of bottle caps. Any beer that you try in the future...rather than draining it...recap and send my way. Problem solved.

    post-2009 i'd have said a BCBS float (yeah, you read that right)... but now that I can regularly pick up a case again, i know what i'm busting out this summer with a little french vanilla ice cream!

    As long as you like them thats all that matters. Its not unfair critism in any way, its my thoughts, the drinker, the buyer etc. Everything ive ever had from the three breweries i listed are quite simply entry level craft beers. Feel free to have my share of breckenridges esb and tommys cocoa porter. , ill be enjoying my fullers esb and founders porter:)

    Years of searching and I have found nothing to compare to the original Ballantine's I.P.A. Pay day in the factory I worked in Medford, Mass., required an immediate trip to the package store for a full case. Would have been late 60's thru early 70's. Made my wife crazy-but she loved it too. Smelled like fine whiskey when you cracked one open. Bliss! Does anyone make anything even close to it today? What happened to the original recipes?

    Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale continues to disappoint, I can't understand the hype for this beer I think it is an unbalanced bitter bomb that I keep buying because it's so popular. This year is the last year i'm done, next year i'm going to be disappointed by some other holiday release.

    I'll never have GI Nightstalker again. Split a bomber with a couple friends last Saturday and it was universally hated to the point we were wondering if something was wrong with it.

    Weirdly enough they still sell it at my local packy. I bought a 6 pack about a year ago for nostalgia's sake, since it's the first actual beer I can remember from when I was a kid. I'll never forget sitting in the backseat of my parents car and seeing the neon Red Dog sign in the window of someone's dorm at the college near my house. But yeah, I bought it and it was HARSH
