    (Mass) Well if the old AAL's count, then Carlings Black Label, which used to be brewed "on the shores of Lake Cochituate". Tasted like the lake. I think it's since moved production to Canada, and changed the style to a lite.

    Kentucky, Sheltowee Gloomsucker Black Ale - I don't know if I just got a bad batch, or if it was too old (or not old enough), but it tasted like a carbonated ashtray. I used it for braising pork with some chicken stock.

    Although we are disgusting, I can assure you we have never done a beer even remotely like that nor do we have nitro.

    WI - Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. Wanted something light and refreshing for an outdoors, HOT, July graduation party, and to make it worse I bought a 12 pack. Tasted like lemon cough drops dissolved in cheap, crappy malt liquor. Since I was outside, it was my first tree pour (the tree survived). Couldn't give it away after the party. My first real beer faux pas.

    Miller, using those loosely in case we're talking manufactured vs. owned.

    Baying Hound Aleworks Sour Pumpkin Porter. No link because Baying Hound is a small solo brewpub near Washington, DC and they don't have much recognition. Customer brought in his growler filled with this beer, says he hated it and we could drink it; he'd pick his growler up later. I say again, sour pumpkin porter. It was awful. It tasted like stale, moldy dirt. Pumpkin porter I could see. But sour? Way, way too ambitious. Even if it was done right, I don't think a sour pumpkin porter would be very good.

    Edit- The beer is named Sour Corgan

    While there are several states that stand accused of brewing and distributing outright swill (Any state that has a Budweiser brewery that makes Bud light Lime or select 55, a beer for people that hate beer) No other state can acclaim that their brewery took cold Ho Jo pancakes smothered in Aunt Jemima and cold Bacon grease then set it on fire and put that all in a bottle painted the color of Pepto Bismal. Oregon Wins Voodo Bacon abomination!

    I never really post on these boards. I am pretty busy and would rather invest my time in reading rather than responding to posts. This site is best when it is positive and promotes the best of what the craft beer world can offer. I am disouraged by how many responses this negatively themed thread has received. I hoped that this thread would have died out quickly but find myself discouraged by all of this negativity.

    I don't want to be the one to have to put it like this, but the worst beer from here is Pisgah's Baptista. It's worse than the other things they've offered.

    Came into this thread to say this. What a godawful waste of barley, hops, yeast, water, glass, label paper, tank space, and my time.

    You're lucky we let you use the name Carolina, it should be North Georgia.

    That beer almost made me never try sours again. It was cheap at BevMo and it tasted like someone took a really bad, infected beer then added Sour Patch Kids and let it age in the Arizona summer sun for a few months. Then they filtered and bottled it and sold it to me. Bastards.

    I never tried it even though I saw it everywhere in California for pretty cheap. The packaging made it look like it was trying too hard to be any good.

    I hate to say it but anything from Alltech. They make KY Ale. I have not had the stout but the bourbon barrel is one of the sweetest and foulest tasting beers I have had, but I know many people that love it. BBC makes a much better bourbon barrel Ale

    One? Hell I'm on BA I gotta a laundry list;) Wooden Shoe's Bock beer was funky like a saison. Rust Belt's Coke Oven Stout was a watery let down...As far as brewpub's go Rocky River Brewing Company's food is more exciting than their underwhelming beer, it's no wonder they don't bottle. Small local craft Indigo Imp, I've tried and will continue to try but I'm not sure how they are keeping their heads afloat in their "open fermentation" tanks, been let down time & again. The revamped Crooked River lineup from Blackbox brewing is either bad or my memory is bad as I remember drinking/enjoying their stuff in the early 90's right along w/Great Lakes Brewing, who's Burning River (for me anyway) is too bitter to get through a single bottle.

    The brewery on Lake Cochituate in Natick, MA was owned by Carling Brewing Co., a subsidiary of the Canadian Carling-O'Keefe. The brand is still around and brewed in the US, though it went through a number of ownership changes (Carling-National>Heileman>Stroh>Pabst). Pabst still markets it, contract-brewed by MillerCoors, but it appears they won't even admit to the fact on their website - http://www.pabstbrewingco.com/beers/ (Unless Chaz is drinking some old beer up there in Minny Soda).

    It's also still brewed in Canada (where it's a Molson product) and in the UK (as just, "Carling" by Coors) where it is among the best selling lagers in the country - #3 in 2010. Even brewed by SABMiller in South Africa, where it is the best selling beer.

    It was actually a version of WWB before they started adding letters/colors. Their first two (released) beers were just called Wild Wild Brett and Petit Guava Sour.

    Haven't seen any of the Georgia crew chime in. I'm not one to put down breweries usually, but Red Hare Long Day Lager is probably the worst local. Followed by their IPA.
    Something to be said about a strong distribution network I suppose
