    Yes indeed. I've been calling the Bud plant "Big Red" since reading New Jersey Breweries,written by Lew Bryson and Mark Haynie. first chapter The Big Red One,The flying Eagle.



    this may be part of their future plans but I don't know. Some employees at the Newark plant have told me that currently its the only place where Rollling Rock is being brewed.

    Gotta give a shout out to the Mother Earth Peach Windowpane release in NC. A $19 drain pour. Still. Angry.

    DeSoto Lager - just released about a week ago. Bent River Brewing.... they make very solid beers. IMO. fiancée and I stopped in for cinco de mayo . Asked server about it. Said was supposed to be like corona and served w lime. So I figure why not. Completely tasteless the only flavor was the lime thank god for that. Good thing they still had the Jalapeño Pepper Ale still on tap so I could at least be festive.

    I've only been to Eli Cannons a handful of times and don't remember if it was on tap but I can't knock'em for having a instate beer on tap with the amount of tap lines they have. It's just a beer I could care less for...CHEERS

    Fort Collins Smoked Lager. To me, it just tasted like somebody dumped Baco-bits and artificial smoke flavor into a Budweiser Select. And I usually love most things from Fort Collins.

    I've never had a truly awful beer from Kansas, but Free State's Ad Astra Ale is incredibly boring. Some of their other stuff is great though.

    Places w/alot less tap lines most likely aren't going to clog up a line w/watermelon ale.

    Brew Kettle "Black Jack Porter"
    Review: "Total Garbage"

    Brew Kettle makes White Rajah (and Black Rajah is pretty good as well). That beer is going downhill fast in terms of consistency. They also make several other drain pours. Always great drafts (from other breweries!) at their brew pub though.

    Everything I've had from Battered Boar and Hueberts has been awful, it's impossible to say which one was the worst.

    Agreed. But man, watermelon is a weird choice straight out of left feild. Would have thought they'd go with a citrus first. I guess the next logical one would be cucumberhead.

    Nothing Finer Than Shiner! Been drinking Shiner since the 70s. I have a six pack of Premium in the frig and the last keg in the kegerator was Bock. Drink what you like. And I like Shiner. The worst beer...no more in the cooler.

    Anything by Roth Brewinng, which is probably why it does not exist anymore and which is also probably why I will never try Gizmo.

    I was excited when I first found out about Baying Hound Aleworks. Basically a small nano brewery setup, which is awesome to see from a homebrewer's prospective. Then I was finally able to drink some of their beers....everything i had was over carbonated, metallic tasting and poorly made. So I would say anything from them has to be the worst craft beer in Maryland.

    In Michigan (in addition to anything from Schmohz) has to be Chips and Salsa from Arbor Brewing. It tastes like the morning after a college drinking binge of Bud Light where you decided at the end of the night to get nachos from the Bell. I respect jale's review and opinion, but very much disagree. I can't untaste that beer and it's been over 2 years.

    I hate to say it because I like the brewery A LOT, and in fairness havent had a ton of beers from CT, but Two Roads Ol' Factory Pils wasnt very good to me.
