    Super IPA was way too sweet IMO, but it was at least drinkable. I'm thinking stuff I'd never buy again as complete drain pours.

    New Belgium Tart Lychee, Voodoo Maple Donut, and SA Infinium. All novelty beers that was happy to try once, but didn't enjoy enough to have again.

    Three Philosophers - just can't get into it
    New Belgium Brett Beer - One of the few beers I've drain poured. But I'd probably still try Mo Betta Bretta if I ran across it.
    Maui Sobrehumano Palena 'ole - same as above, I'd try the JP version given the chance.
    Trader Joe's Boatswain Double IPA - pretty sure this beer is a practical joke by the brewers. At least it was only $3. Drain poured after 2 sips, which was one sip too many.

    Anything from Syracuse Suds Factory. I tried their Irish Red last week. I'd rather drink Coors Light.

    Never, ever again. Not even to help swallow a suicide pill if I was being tortured by Ernst Stavro Blofeld and his evil minions from the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization.

    There was a hot summer night where a bar I was at that actually has a very good selection of beers was doing half and halfs with Berry Weiss and Summer Shandy? (whatever that leiny's beer is called) and given the right situation that stuff can be incredibly refreshing. By themselves both beers are quite bad but there was something about them together...

    The beer of Maclays and King and Barnes come to mind. As well as all the beers from Belhaven when they were properly brewed some 20 years ago. Will never see them again.:slight_frown:

    Most of the beers I've had, I'll never drink again because I'm always wanting to try new ones. Some were just not particularly good so why waste time. Others were fine or even good, and if that's what you offered me at a party, I'd drink it, but would still not buy it again in favor of something new. But the ones that truly offended were:

    Southern Tier Creme Brulee - overwhelmingly cloying
    Samichlaus and Ettaler Curator doppelbocks - thick balsamic vinegar + sweet
    Saint Somewhere Vierge saison - yeast infection crotch

    Ugh, great choice.

    For me, Cave Creek Chile Beer (or whatever it's called). It is easily the worst beer I've ever had. By a long shot.

    ^^^^Me Too!!! That was such a stellar letdown. But if I see an empty bottle in the trash, I'll sneak a sniff when nobody's looking--the aroma is the only redeeming quality for this one.

    PS. Still shake my head when I see it on the shelf somewhere, (and the price has actually gone up on it recently in a few stores I've seen it in), saddened by the thought that some poor sap is gonna drop $13, or more, and feel that he/she got violated.

    What's with the hate on Southern Tier? Wow...

    For me, Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Throwback Spicy Bohemian, DFH Tweasonale, DFH Hellhound on my Ale, Rogue Voodoo Maple Doughnut, Berkshire Sour Mash Whiskey Barrel Aged Saint of Circumstance, Blue Hills Black Hops, Schlitz High Gravity VSL, Thomas Hooker Watermelon Ale, Opa Opa Blueberry Ale... and there's no way in hell I'll ever buy a Sam Adams Winter Holiday pack again! Old Fezziwig gets packaged separately, or I'll never drink it. I'm not buying those other shit beers just to drink the one I like.

    I drank a Corona once back in 1990 and found it to be disgusting. Safe to say that is a one off for me.

    I bought a 6 of something from Leffe once--I think it was a wheat beer. For some reason, I've never found a wheat beer I've liked. If I could find some on draft perhaps in sample sizes I'd try some more. Until then though I leave the wheats for other folks.

    A guy in HI gave me a wild blue once. Thank god I hadn't paid for the nasty shit.

    Arrogant Bastard, I've just never enjoyed it. I should also add Sierra Nevada Pale and Sam Adams Boston Lager. It's not because they are bad beers, but because they ate everywhere yet rarely ever fresh if they're the best option at a bar.
