Just curious. Thanks!
At one point, some folk reported it was this one...but not sure anymore. Even if it isn't, the reviews are pure comedy gold.
I thought it was this, but @Mindcrime1000 proved me wrong:
Pick any style and look at the bottom rated ones, there's a slew of um..
Why is no rank given? Too few reviews?
Sorry! Sorry! I meant "ranked". Not "rated". What a stupid I am!
For years I thought Cave Creek Chili Beer had that 'honor'...
who cares ? Why does anybody care about low-rated beer ? What is the point of the question ????
Ahhh..man...still trying to catch my breath...you were not lying! the reviews had me in tears! And my dog looking at me like something is wrong with me! LOL!
Sam Adams Triple Bock!!
Some of the reviews are very funny. A good review of a really bad beer brings good comedy writing to the fore. Laughing is good medicine.
I don't remember what beer it was from, (I think Sam Adams triple bock), but it had the best review of a bad beer I've ever read: it tastes like sadness feels.
I think that review was from a member who went by @Overlord. I was trying ti find but couldn't
Mean people suck, Scream.
Oh yeah I remember that one. It went on and on forever about how awful it was. It was more manifesto than review. It was a very good read.
I find this question extremely interesting, but I can't quite define why. No, I don't want to hate on the brewery or the beer (but I will avoid it). I think I just like data, especially extreme data points.
What can we learn about good beer from bad beer? Something I think.
He had a perfect way of mangling the language and making a good point. I loved reading his work. I could tell he had fun doing it!
my guess is that the lowest rated beer here is one I would not buy anyway. Interesting that nobody has posted what that beer might be ?
I opened the link provided by Mindcrime1000 in post #2 on the 3 Floyd’s beers and as usual the reviews are a hoot reading. Obviously that was a crappy beer of epic proportions
Just got the idea to pull up a popular AAL and quite a few of the reviews about matched some of the scores of the abysmal 3 F beer. Not all mind you but more than a few, and obviously a few were rated to style I suppose too to earn very high marks, I was just curious.
wow, some guys rated it incredibly high, something for everyone I suppose.
Super Brew 15 should be it.
I wimpier just thinking about it.
Totally agree. A beers of shame list wouldn't be as useful as the beers of fame list, but it would be interesting and much more humorous.
You wouldn't buy it normally, but if you knew what the lowest rated beer was then there'd be an incentive to buy it just once so you could: (a) see if it's as bad as it's hyped up (down?) to be, (b) say that you've had the worst beer in the world to your be geek friends, and (c) contribute your review of said beer.
And if that opinion was popular, the lowest rated beer would (temporarily) become a big seller. I love the irony.
One of the beautiful things about the free market, aside from never being boring/stagnant
You get these awesome examples at both ends of the spectrum
Because there’s nothing good on TV at the moment?
This seems to be the lowest rated malt liquor.The avg. is 1.32.
Would there be a financial incentive for the brewers of the 2nd and 3rd worst beers in the world to tweak their recipes and try to unseat #1? I'd love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting where they discuss ways to make their beer even shittier.
This thread reminded me of one I never bothered rating because it was the worst beer I have ever tasted. I actually sent a bottle in a trade, as an extra, extra with a disclaimer because the label was cool. https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/7944/39668/
https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/306/2947/ is in the running. Ranked 47,915.
In 2007 I bought this beer in Paris and drank it room temperature on a train to Zurich. Glorious times, your twenties:
But this is objectively better than actual keystone light
My guess would be "Billy" beer. Worst swill I've ever tasted!
There must have been a few people who semi-liked it and rated it above other worst beers. It 'enjoys' a 1.73 rating.
I suspect that it was a then current beer that was just rebranded. I have no evidence to back that up.
Yeah, I've just started looking into it now. I have an empty Billy Beer can that says Falls City Brewing in Louisville, KY, produced the beer, but the beer is not listed on their BA page, not even as retired. Cool Springs Brewery in Franklin, TN, lists a Billy Beer as retired on their BA page, but no pic is shown of the can to know if it's the right beer. Maybe multiple breweries made this beer?
I'll google it later this evening a get it figured out.
I believe that I had the version brewed by Pearl. Yeah, I found my can of JR beer and I remember both coming from the same brewery.
I saw a few unopened Billy Beers on the shelf at a antique shop last week. I didn’t bother to look at the price.
Empty cans are typically just 2-3 bucks when I see them at antique stores, and I doubt that full cans would bring much more. A true collector likely wants an empty can, preferably emptied by a small hole in the bottom, so a purist might pay a premium price to empty one that way..
i would drink one if I ever found one.
My full can of Billy Beer feels chunky. It was brewed at Falls City in Cincinnati. No two brothers could be different than Jimmy and Billy. Jimmy was working on Camp David and Billy was holding court at a local gas station. There's even a better story here and it might take some fiction without any real names or attribution......
