    Funny enough, Crooked Stave has brewed several of the best beers I've ever had from Colorado, but they've also been responsible for the worst as well. The original version of WWB they debuted borderline made me ill.
    Luckily nearly everything since has been full-on amazing.

    Anything from Solem Oath. Blechhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Also, Revolution's extra shitty brown ale. Tasted like metallic water. The WORST.

    It used to be so good, too. This is the most notable destruction of a beer by InBev.

    I won't name them, but it was a Hefeweizen from a new brewery. I had it at a craft beer festival. They are new so I'd like to give them a chance to work out the kinks. The other beer I had from them was good.

    Its a tough call. Definitely something that I bought in a Sam Adam's Sampler. Pretty close call between the Cranberry Lambic and the Bonfire Rouchbier.

    OK: A toss up between Belle Isle Blonde Ale
    & Bricktown Brewery's Copperhead
    (now known as "46 Star OK Amber Ale")
    both are watery messes.

    Chi Town Pier Pale Ale. I had this at a beer fest last year. The table was at the best spot, the first thing that you saw when you came through the doors. I took one sip, nodded politely at the guy behind the table and poured it into the nearest plant as soon as his back was turned. It was an embarrassment to Chicago.

    New Albanian Naughty Claus. Take a flat pale ale and mix in a spoonful of the first 5 spices you seen in your kitchen. It is the cinammon challenge of beers.

    I have to say that Bloody Beer is one of my favorite seasonal beers from Short's. Pair it with stuffed peppers,just great!

    The worst brewery in South Carolina is New South from Myrtle Beach, whose beers are uniformly awful, and their white ale is the loser of the bunch. Just brutally bad stuff.

    Being a fan of some fruit beers, me and an ex were convinced by a clerk at our local beer store this was fantastic. My ex ended up drinking the entire six pack, because after one taste i refused to drink any more. This is a travesty because usually I won't let even mediocre beer go to waste if its already been purchased tasty or not. This on the other hand was HORRIBLE!. I had totally forgotten about it and deleted it from my memory until you reminded me ;).

    It turns out I know one of the guys that started that brewery (he was a contractor for my project at work a couple of years ago)...never tried their beers though - worse than Lone Star?

    I just checked the BA description of this. I've never tried it, but you know, I'm disgusted by just the description. I'm changing mine too.

    "Pizza Beer is a debris free product. The Margarita pizza is put into the mash & steeped like a tea bag. A whole wheat crust made with water, flour & yeast is topped with tomato, oregano, basil & garlic. The essence of the pizza spices is washed off with hot water and filtered into a brewpot, where it is boiled for a long, long time. During the process, we add hops & spices in a cheesecloth type bag & filter the cooled liquid into a fermentation vessel. (big glass 6 gallon water jug). After a week or two, the beer is good to go. Keg it or bottle it."

    Peach Fred? Oh, no, my friend, that was merely bad.

    Now Apricot Fred, there's a contender. Delicious, delicious acetone.

    Also, New Old Lompoc did a second running of their barleywine (Old Tavern Rat, named after Don Younger) called Old Tavern Mouse which was one of the most gruesome beers I've ever tried. Kind of a disgraceful beer considering the namesake.

    Wonder Bar/Wyoming Brewery in Casper, WY has the most underwhelming beers I have possibly ever tried. I think they started off as more of a brewery, and now they're just more of a regular bar that makes a few beers as an afterthought. I don't think they're even named anything..."The Pale Ale" or "The Amber Ale" or something. They were so uninteresting and had so little character that I'm not even sure if I'd compliment them by calling them bad, they were just underwhelming.

    I really wanted to like them because Wyo needs all the good beer we can get.
