    Yellow snow IPA. And Monks Revenge. Just don't like Belgian flavor to an IPA. It's almost insulting.

    Penn Brewery's Penn Pilsner because it is not a Pilsner or Vienna-Style lager.

    Dogfish Head Black & Red was pretty revolting and I would go to great lengths to avoid drinking it again. If I wanted to drink a mixture of 120 and mouthwash, well, I probably wouldn't post about it.

    Kate the Great.

    Not that it's bad, but I'll never make it to Kate Day, and, after having it, I'll never pony up the ridiculous amount of great stuff that it takes to land on the trade market.

    In Arizona, ANYTHING from Phoenix Ale Company...and also ST's Creme Brulee Stout - the WORST beer I've ever had. Sadly wasted the money and order on that beer while in Alston, MD at Sunset Grill (which has to be one of the best beer places on the east coast).

    Rogue Voodoo Doughnut - both Bacon Maple Ale and Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Banana Ale. Should be reported to the Trade Descriptions! :(

    I find that i go against the masses here, but Victory's Hop Wallop. Don't know if i just happened to get a bad batch but it had an overwhelmingly soapy finish that i'm still tasting a year later. Love the rest of thier line-up however.

    Ovila, wow that sucked. I should have known based on the shelf price...it probably didn't even cover the cost of that fancy bottle.

    Natty Ice. For 5.9% or whatever that crap was, it was the booziest beer under 10% I've ever had. Granted, I haven't had it since college, but I still gag thinking of it. At least Keystone Ice was semi-drinkable

    There's isn't a beer that I wouldn't drink again. There are many beers that I wouldn't buy again, but if it were offered to me at a party or something, I'd take it without complaining (or maybe if I knew the person well enough, I might tease them a little;) )

    I take the word "never" to mean something strong. What beer is so bad that even if I were offered up a glass for free, I wouldn't even try it? I have only one answer to this question: DFH Black and Red.

    Note: if your answer was Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale, you don't know anything about beer.

    My answer was Voodoo Maple Bacon and I actually know a lot about beer! Everyone has different tastes, some of my friends liked it others did not.

    Yeah? What did you hate about the beer? There is literally no quality about that beer that some other beer doesn't exhibit in a much more extreme way. You are picking that beer because it is the popular thing to do, and that's why I say you don't know beer.

    Please know, I don't begrudge anyone's personal tastes. I don't think you should like the beer, but to say that THAT BEER is SO HORRIBLE that you would NEVER taste it again, exhibits some lack of understanding.

    Breckenridge Christmas Ale makes Breckenridge Vanilla Porter look fantastic in comparison. I tried it last night, and if I had brewed that myself, I would have poured out the entire mess and put all of my equipment up for sale on Craig's list.

    SN Brux. I saw some of the Brettanomyces bruxellensis trying to get out of that toxic bath.

    I'm a Victory lover but I agree with this. I've had Wallop once in bottle and once on draft and I had the soapy experience both times. I can't begrudge a brewery as overall amazing as Victory one beer that I don't dig, however. Victory for life.

    Catamount Christmas. No really, Innis and Gunn Rum Cask. Got three cases in a fire sale and pretty much had to choke them down. And I like beer and I like rum.
