    You are correct but use of the word infected is the common vernacular so you're fighting a losing battle. Just accept it.

    It makes me sad that there are 31 pages of this thread. What happened to just sucking it up and finishing your beer?

    Agreed. I've only drain poured two beers. One that had gone bad and this one.

    Send me your shipping address. I've got a few infected bottles here with your name on it. Oh, and make sure to film yourself drinking all 25.4 ounces and put it on YouTube.

    I agree, but didn't you buy the beer? It's not college where you're at a party and "Natty Light is all they had so I just drank it even though it tastes like piss." It's your own fault if you bought something awful. Suck it up and drink your own mistake. Plus, pouring the beer that most of us buy down the drain is a gigantic waste of money - for which I would argue that "growing up" would cause one to be more apt to drink what they bought. That's my opinion anyway. I understand that other people may think differently.

    Why do you care how I use the goods I've purchased, and why would "growing up" mean finishing drinking something that tastes terrible?

    If I buy a beer with obvious off flavors (like the Band-Aid Fantome Printemps I poured out a few weeks ago) that tastes terrible I'm going to pour it out - it seems to me that it's a waste of calories and sobriety to continue drinking something awful just because I purchased it.

    A week ago I picked up a 4 pack of Victory's Dirt Wolf. Mind you I picked it up in SF, which should've been my first warning.
    Before I get to Dirt Wolf, I'll say this: Victory has always underwhelmed me. They rank up under the "meh sure I'd order it if nothing else is on tap" but I'm not busting down bar stools to get some.
    That led me to DW, of which many BA's here and other places have compared to Pliny, and HT thus generating my initial intrigue.
    Unfortunately, the batch was bad and the beer undrinkable. Plus I paid $14 for it...
    I do believe however, that the beer isn't truly awful (people wouldn't be as crazy about it otherwise), so here's to hopping the next time I see it I stumble upon a fresher, better batch!

    A friend brought over the mixed SA winter sampler. The chocolate cherry bock was was a drain pour for me. Fake, fake tasting cherry.

    And to everyone who says drink up/drink you mistake/etc, you've never thrown out food when it was bad? Go ahead and eat that moldy piece of fruit you forgot about. And even if you are making exceptions for infected beer, I don't believe you have eaten every food product you ever purchased that you didn't like.

    Wait a minute. It just dawned on me that those people may have actually been serious? I was under the impression they were trying to be funny.

    This explains a lot of what's wrong with the world today. :grimacing:

    Stone Ruinten- found some around Christmas time sitting on a store shelf and took a chance knowing it was old. After a couple drinks I had to dump it, was sour beyond recognition.

    What's the last $30 bottle of wine you drain-poured? Brewers should be ashamed of themselves for packaging infected (I know that's wrong but it's in the vernacular) beer. I'm gonna go open a nice bottle of 2009 Chateau Montelena Cabernet.

    I hope you find a better batch, because I just bought a single in a build-your-own 6pack and I'm buying a 4pack as soon as I see it! DirtWolf was insanely delicious. I truly hope and pray that you find a good one, because if you drain poured a good one, may god have mercy on your soul.

    No problem at all, it's the cost of home brewing and Blichmann stuff is over-engineered and will probably outlast me so it's a small investment to save from all the pains of bottling...no more priming sugar, no more waiting (3) weeks or more to carbonate, no more having to bottle every last drop, sanitizing a stupid amount of bottles... etc. = worth the investment!

    Probably because you drank a 5.8% ABV beer that is a seasonal release that was brewed 7-10 months old (it has a 3-5 month shelf life tops.

    Have you poured their nitro beers before? I ask because there's a pretty specific way to pour them...but basically turn it upside down over the glass and pour as hard as possible. I think there's a video online or on their website...but give it a look before you pour the next one. They really do work and are awesome! Milk Stout Nitro is one of my favorites.

    Butternuts Moo Thunder Stout. Drank about 3/4's of one and gave the other 5 to my roommate. Had this burnt milk flavor with a taste of aluminum that was just horrid. Never again.

    Cascade -- Apricot Ale. So excited to try it; very disappointed. I was expecting a clean, fruit-forward sour. The "funk" element was too prominent. Not enough fruit character. Way overrated, IMHO.

    Mischief Gone Wild from the Bruery.

    A cheesy, wet cardboard oxidation bomb with little to no brett character.

    So disappointing.

    I poured the same one. It's the lactose sweetness that was giving me a bad feeling in my stomach when I drank it. I think the other name for milk stout is sweet stout and boy is it! You are not alone =)
