    When I was about 16 I had my first beer. That was my worst beer mishap to date.

    I bought a 12 pack of Sam Adams beer once, and as I was leaving the cardboard ripped out of my hand and every bottle shattered.

    Ever since the in I've always grabbed from the bottom.

    A stray thread from my sweater's cuff snagged on the cap of a 4-pack of Wake-N-Bake, of which only one broke. The thread has since been dealt with.

    I was smoking a pork shoulder this past weekend, and I accidentally kicked over a snifter of Bourbon County Brand Stout after spritzing my pork. The snifter shattered and I watched my BCBS pour all over my patio. It was painful, but luckily I had put two bottles in my refrigerator earlier that day, so I was at least able to pour another glass. .

    While carrying a 750 ml Cuvée Van De Keizer Blauw from the cellar. My foot slipped off the step, fell forward and the bottle went tumbling after. I have wooden steps the bottle bounced then hitting the cellar floor shattering. I.O. Problems, I wish there were alcohol insurance that covered Human Imperfection.

    So a few weeks ago coming home from Funky Buddha's bottle release of MBCP I decided that I could absolutely carry 4 bottles inside in my highly intoxicated state. Well apparently I could only carry 3 inside safely and my front porch smelled like maple syrup for a week.

    It wouldn't of been so bad if I didn't have to hear the old "I told you so" from the wife for a week after

    I came home from Florida one time and all my clothes ending up selling like one of the finest IPA's in existence. Thank you Spirit Airlines for crushing 2 cans of Jai Lai. D-Bags!!!!!

    A few years ago I smashed a 3 year old Westy 12 when it fell off the shelf on the door of my kegerator. I sucked up what I could without ingesting glass shards....

    Maybe this is off-topic, BUT...

    Liz (my girlfriend) and I were looking for Mokah everywhere after I found out it was retired. Some especially generous members of the BA community went hunting for me as well. We found two bottles in central Michigan at a random bottle shop, bought them both, and were planning on drinking one right away and sitting on the other for another six months.

    After we drank the first one, my little brother came to visit and drank the other one after we went to sleep one night.

    You probably heard we had a little bit of snow in Atlanta. The delivery guy was delivering Hopslam to my local store and was holding the case by one handle, slipped and dropped it. Only 2 bottles broke and I still got my 6 pack.

    My buddy dropped a full growler of Alpine Pure Hoppiness. I think he considered licking the ground.

    Not that bad but, a few days ago I had just grabbed a FIS and a glass and sat down on the couch. I placed the bottle on the coffee table, moved to grab the glass and somehow hit the bottle and lost about half of the beer. I was bummed!

    I had a real hard time getting the cork out of a bottle of Lebleu. I had ended up ripping it piece by piece and finally the bottle cracked. Before I was able to come up with a better coarse of action the top gave way and jumped of the bottle spraying beer. I was able to salvage a glass of this great beer but I had a funky mess to clean up afterward.

    I had a growler of Sculpin freeze on me at a hotel in San Diego. I went to grab the screw-top out of the fridge and the thing broke right in the middle. Scuplin slushy soaked the carpet. I wonder what the next visitor thought of the smell!

    I had a bottle of Simtra fall out of my RV fridge, shatter and run into the heating ducts on the first day of our trip. I actually enjoyed the smell, just wish I didn't waste the beer!

    Not me personally. But during Dark Lord day 2010, I saw a guy drop an entire case of Dark Lord. Most of the bottles shattered. The crowd erupted in a mix of cheers and jeers. From the look on his face, you'd think he ran over his dog.

    it could have been worse, this was my brother in law and he had some coffee and some backyard in a bag and the bag broke but only one bottle of coffee came out.

    I've seen that happen. Admittedly it was just Kronenbourg Red, but still it must be pretty disheartening to spill so much beer.

    crap, you'd think it was a Monday morning. Wait. It is.
    Pretty sad way to start the week, I've had a couple HT recently, great stuff, never worthy of the drain. It's a sad day people...

    Kicked a half glass of Heady Topper across the room the other day. Bell's snifter was in perfect condition. Heady was all over the place, including my ten month old boy.

    I left a Black Ops in my car overnight a few years ago, it ended up freezing and breaking the bottle. It wasn't even supposed to be that cold out..

    I dropped an entire case of St. Bernardus 12 once. It felt like someone had punched me in the stomach. Also when you break a St. Bernardus 12 it explodes with a lot of force, makes cleanup a little more widespread.

    Dropped a six pack of Jai Alai taking it out of a box I got in trade, one can hit the edge of the fireplace and exploded, I was able to save about 6 ounces and poured it in a pint glass, still delicious
