    Sometimes I read through these threads and see that people have drainpoured delicious beers. It makes me sick.

    Voodoo Donut
    Tweason'ale
    Shipyard Pumpkinhead
    Big Eddy Wee Heavy (may have been a bad batch)

    I would say ST 2XIPA, but the first one I ever had must have been a bad batch. Tried it again recently and I am glad I did.

    I thought Stone 16th was bad, but not undrinkable. I wouldn't buy it again, but probably wouldn't refuse it.

    Gilgamesh is the only brewery that I've sworn off completely. I knew there was risk involved in a "Chocolate Mint Stout" (worst beer ever), but then I had their Amber and it was godawful. How do you make an offensively bad amber?

    Most any of the smoked styles.
    I can't get past them just tasting to me like a nasty cigarette smoky bar for some reason.

    Call me crazy, but...

    last year when I tried Cambridge Brewing Company's Great Pumpkin Ale, I must have liked it, because I bought it again this year. This year it was one of the least flavorful and most disappointing beers I can remember drinking. As I was drinking it, I thought about the Miller Lite I drank the previous night having more flavor, and even Polar Pumpkin Seltzer! I've been appreciating more session beers lately, so it's not like I was expecting a malt bomb. Inconsistency, I guess?

    Henry Weinhard's Woodland Pass IPA. One of those impulse ticker buys. It's not horrible, it's just not an IPA. No reason to purchase ever again.

    Infinium - I expected it to be great and it was disgusting. Maybe sometimes two renowned breweries cancel each other out when they collaborate.

    Miller Chill - I tried it when it first came out years ago. Morbid curiosity I guess. I expected it to be bad and it was much worse.

    Sierra Nevada Rye IPA, I have a lot of respect for SN, but I don't like an assertive rye taste. Some of y friends love it.

    Manly Men Beer Club Sea Smoke- The MOST UNGODLY of a Beer ever known to Man. It should have been called the ‘Unearthly Men’. If the average score is an 85 then these tasters must have been smoking poison sumac and had pine cones for chest hairs. I realize a lot of us hate on lack of taste but I think it's a whole helluva lot worse at the opposite end of the spectrum. At least the lackluster beers have something to fall back on, (“It is what it is”). Which I hate for an argument in general but works in this case.
    T'Weason- A market not built for me. It does get some sort of a reprieve because of that. It’s kind of like bitching about stuff because it’s “Diet”.
    Captain Lawrence Fresh Chester Pale Ale: If I wanted a Urine taste and flavor I can think of a more Local source.A “90”, compared to what?
    Ta Henket: Not a fan, can’t deal with the dank stank Heineken hop deal on this. Not a DFH hater but this was a letdown for me.

    Never say say never. But right now I'm a bit apprehensive to revisit a rauchbier, any ST blackwater series or Arrogant Bastard. (Screw it, I'm worthy now. Gonna revisit AB sometime soon.)

    Amazed at some of the responses; some of these beers are great. I would give most beers a second chance, and only refuse to drink something again if it was truly offensive, see below.

    Bud Light Platinum
    Shipyard Pumkinhead

    Ditto on that Pumpkinhead. I had one of those last night and it was horrible.

    Haha, I live in Queensbury, came here to say the same thing. Coopers Cave more so than Davidson in my opinion, CC beers all taste like wet cardboard, every style tastes the same, something is wrong.

    Left Hand T.N.T., one of my only drain pours. Pretty sure they don't make it anymore but my god how terrible.
    Rockman high gravity lager from Upper Canada brewing, again no longer brewed but I bought it once as a joke because 24 ounce cans were .75 cents each and subsequently caused 5 of my friends to vomit.

    J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (Laguvulin) because it was a nasty drain pour for me.
    Bruery - Black Tuesday because I'll never go through the hassle of getting it.

    Lindemans Apple - maybe my bottle went bad - but bitter green apples aren't what I'm looking for in a beer!

    I've heard a lot of BA's commenting that they didn't like this beer. I have to say, I really enjoyed it; actually much more than Enjoy By... I didn't find the lemon to be overpowering at all. However, it seems that many others have.
