Goose Island's Matilda.
The Craft Brewers Conference was just in Portland and so a lot of breweries that do not distribute out here were all over the place. I was super disappointed in Founders. Breakfast stout is nothing special, KBS was definitely good but not amazing, blushing monk was horrible, Dirty Bastard was so-so. The only beer I really thought stood out was their standard Imperial Stout.
Similar situation but not the same. I opened a warm can of Jai Alai (I know...what was I thinking). I was about to fly out and didn't want this treasure to go to waste. Bad mistake, I couldn't finish it. It MUST be chilled!
Against the Grain Berwynnerweisse, although that owes completely to the style rather than the brewer. It's the only beer I've ever had to struggle to choke down, and really brought home the fact that sours are just not for me.
Stone Crime/Punishment is up there for me.
I don't drain pour often but I couldn't get past two sips of that crap.
No, I'm not actually that old.
I am surprised that hardly anyone is bringing up some of the horrible big beers. For instance, I never could understand why anyone wanted to drink Heileman's Old Style. It gives me the heevies just thinking of it. That stuff was skunky bilge-water. No wonder it is gone.
Worse I've had in the last year(not all time) was when I got a bottle of Bell's Cherry Stout. Not sure if it sat forever or if it's just the way it was bottled, but it tasted really weird and a little bitter as well. And this is coming from someone who actually now appreciates stouts unlike years ago, but this bottle for whatever reason tasted really bad. I did the rare step of drainpouring it, and just a little after the halfway mark of how filled up it originally was of beer. Luckily, the place I got it at didn't charge a lot for Cherry Stout, when I got a custom 4 pack of beer there to go.
Putting aside skunked contenders I think I'd have to say Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat.
I went to my niece's wedding in San Diego last fall and they were serving this beer--Plinny the Older I think--and it tasted like dog vomit, I'm not kidding.
Psych! Niece did marry at Stone Brewery. Beer was amazing. Worst beer ever was Fix. Look it up. It's an ancient ale in the truest modern definition.
Sam Adams Stony Brook Red
Ipswich Brewing - Green Head IPA.
The Stone green tea, was so disgusting...it was so bad nothing else even comes close!
Bluegrass Bourbon Barrel Stout. And I like Bourbon Barrel Stouts.
Ok, will do.
Wild Blue, Creme Brulee, or Big Lushious (sorry founders)
I also had a swig of a Westbrook Gose before I knew sours were a thing and needless to say that didn't go well for me.
Rhinelander circa 1984-85
Shock top twisted pretzel wheat. It tasted like margarine and salt.
I was in the same boat on Chai Spiced IRS just did not do it for me at all. But got a pint for $4 so I drank it. Just was right disappointing but when comparing it to the regular and the obligatory love for espresso irs I may have had too high expectations.
not that I'm a shock top lover, but what's wrong with margarine and salt? maybe i will pour some shock top on my popcorn later
Natty Greene's brewery, Greensboro NC. All of their beers are t-r-b-l
I respectfully disagree. Granted I do not buy the pedestrian Natty Greene's nor do I have any financial ties to the company but to say ALL of their beers are bad or "t-r-b-l" may be your opinion BUT not likely shared by most BAs if you see their lineup on BA. NG has an Amazing sour program….too bad they don't put out more of these regularly.
Did you get to try any Backwoods Bastard? That's my favorite founders brew.
Avery Beast. Sugary boozy mess
Yes, this is by far the worst. I never drain pour but I thought about it with this. I managed to choke it down after about an hour of sipping. Gave the rest to my roommate who was already drunk, he said, "hey, these are actually pretty good." Told him to have at it.
Agreed, it tasted like cough medicine, and I would rather drink the cough medicine. But it's founders so the it's hyped and the actual taste isn't reflected in the score.
Definitely the most undrinkable beer I've ever had was King Cobra. In college, when any swill would do, I couldn't stomach even 20oz of the 40oz bottle.
But, if we're talking craft beer, I really had a problem with River Horse's Tripel Horse:
2.16/5 rDev -41.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2
Maybe it was just that the 6-pack wasn't treated well before I bought it, but the fact that there was a taste that was not unlike bile turned me off to this beer and the brewery.
MMM Hops. Not even close
What about sahti's?
Would have to be Franziskaner Weissbier Dunkel. Found out real quick i don't like wheat beer. i seen it was a German beer - plus. Also it was a Dunkel, another plus. Wrong! Stuff was soo bad i tried like hell to drink half of the glass but found myself gagging after every sip. I tried, no dice. Shit tasted like someone exhumed a dead body. Stole their socks and made beer out of it. Sry guess German wheat beer aint for me... blaaah
I guess having drunk 1,000+ cans of it in my youth I couldn't fairly call it one of the worst beers I've ever tried.
"Yeah I picked up some textbook definition of a beer and it wasn't my taste so it's awful."
"I hate sours so this sour was gross."
Come on guys.
Yueling. Hands down. Man was definitely down.
So in the thread "Worst beer you've tasted", this guy says "Founders sucks!"
Thousands upon thousands disagree, Bub.
There're a difference between "disappointed in the offerings" and "worst beer you've tried".
My only drain pour ever was Monday Nights eye patch ale. I don't know, I don't think it was but it might have been old.
Aside from the BMCs, I would say Epic Brewing Co. 825 State Stout.
Sam Adams Triple Bock from the 90s. Tasted like soy sauce and dead babies.
Sam Adams Triple Bock for me.
The general consensus is that this one gets way better with age.
Grant it this was earlier in my intro to craft beers so i might need to give it another shot but the worst nonBMC beer I have tasted was Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. My wife hated it as well. It's also my biggest negative deviation in rating
I couldn't agree more first drain pour for me
Flying dog raging bitch was pretty bad. First I thought I didn't like the BIPA style then I had others that were great and realized how crap it was.
