    Indra Kinidra was one of the worst. I forced it down on principle. Black Marlin with serrano peppers was a close second. Tasted like tobasco and soy sauce. Boiling ass lava the next day.

    Southern tier 2 xmas. The glogg nonsense. Like water filtered through gym socks and turds.

    Strangeways Olivia (Wyld Sisters Sour). No sourness, no carbonation, & looked like murky pond water. My friend got the set as well & had the same experience with the Portia bottle. I really like supporting local breweries & like that Strangeways does some very adventurous things- but at around $40 for a 3-pack, this is pretty awful. I drank 3/4 of the bottle trying to like it but couldn't. Now I'm stuck with the other 2 & don't see myself having an urge to open either in the foreseeable future.

    Just remembered. Pabst Blue Ribbon

    A couple years ago after a softball game. Guy that's supposed to bring the beer brings this shit. It's hot out like 90 degrees. I never liked it but after a few years figured why not let's try it again. And there no other beer anyway. I crack one open. Jesus. One of the worst beers on Earth. Finally someone brought Miller Lite which tasted like Sculpin compared to that PBR swill.

    I would say Schneider aventinus, it was too fruity and every sip made me cringe. Finished it like a champ though. Strong beer nonetheless.

    Without any shadow of doubt, it would have to be Carlton United Brewery's Carlton Dry Fusion series. If I recall correctly it tasted like flat, cheap lemonade mixed with off beer strained through week-old underpants.

    Another nasty beer I had was Stella Cider, it was way too sweet and the cider taste was overpowering, I felt like I was toasting at a quinceñera.

    I forgot to mention New Belgium Pluot. It tasted like they aged some juice in a copper kettle.

    I agree, easily one of the worse beers i have had.

    Labatt Bourbon Barrell was god awful. That's gotta be my least favorite I've ever tried.

    I forgot that one, agree. I am a huge Sixpoints fanboy, but that stuff was rank.... I have no idea what they were thinking but I suspect it involved more than a few cans of Hi-Res consumed prior to the decision to make it......

    Where I'm from I can't get Dogfish Head, so when someone brought this back from a trip I was quite eager to try this.

    Maybe it was my unrealistically high expectations (and the description on the bottle) ... but this was an experiment gone horribly wrong. The flavors did not complement each other at all. I don't understand the high ratings on this one.

    Pipeworks - Absinthe Barrel Saison. I got that lump in my throat like when you're about to puke but I held it down and choked though the bottle. I've been to Prague and had my fair share of Absinthe which is slightly nasty in itself, anything at a bar that they hand you a spoon, sugar packet and book of matches in order to drink is wrong.

    Some non-descript amberish ale at a bar downtown Chandler, Arizona (not San Tan Brewery) which finished with the taste of spoiled meat (I can't really describe it - it was savory and meaty). It was very bad and very weird that you'd get that sort of flavor. Passed the glass around. At first it was less gross than confusing because it was a flavor you wouldn't expect from beer. Upon second tries we all realized how gross it was.

    Hands down Lagunitas Hop Stoopid. Tasted like rank garbage. Right behind that was week old 90 degree budweiser.

    I must concur. I bought this. The smell of this beer (ale) punches you right in the face. Perfume and funk and musty basement and old ladies house....an odd smell like no other beer I've ever tried. When you finally hold your nose as best you can and take a sip it's horrible. The closest comparison is when you were a kid and your old aunt gave you a piece of Freedent that had been in the bottom of her naugahyde purse for the last 8 months with lack of any air circulation....and the gum (while gross in it's own right) took on the flavors of perfume, hairspray, tissues and whatever else old ladies carry around.

    I've drank some crappy stuff in my day, trust, and I can usually choke them down. This one is like no other. HORRIBLE.

    To be fair, a beer called Smoked Swamp Ape is kind of setting expectations low.

    I can't really count the Natty Ices, Beasts, and the traditional BMC varieties just 'cause I got what I expected out of them.
    The worst beer I've had would probably be Shocktop, had one years ago at a restaurant that didn't Oberon, or even Blue Moon (a summertime fallback position at chain restaurants). Server suggested Shocktop, it was new to Michigan, so I said what the hell. Didn't realize it was just an A-B wheat wannabe.
    Gottdam it's disgusting.

    I had a local IPA that had a rubbing alcohol finish, worst I've tasted. I will not name names. Indra Kunindra is a close second, had it at the brewery last year. I love indian food but not in my beer!

    Ive had a few pumpkin beers (smashed pumpkin, autumn maple) and could put down at least over half. Stone's Green tea ipa was a drain pour after a few ounces for me.

    I was excited to see this at my local this past weekend and give it a try and was sorely disappointed. The Bourbon Barrel Stout isn't really any better. It was very thin and watery, no mouthfeel and too much boozy bourbon burn. It was better with a really hard pour, but not by much.

    I've on occasion drain poured a beer at home but this is the only time I've not finished a beer I ordered at a bar.
