    DuClaw is a joke. Wait until you try their 'gose.' Scratch that, don't try their gose. You should read my review of it. Repulsive.

    I was so excited to crack open my Cognac Jesus that I've been saving. Unfortunately, 2 sips was all I could tolerate. Absolutely disgusting. Looked online and there have been lots of infected bottles. $25 down the drain...

    Evil Twin price point and consistency is making them easy to cross of my list.

    Earlier today I dumped a bottle of Guinness. First time trying it and can't believe the reputation it has. Like drinking a flat diet coke with bacon grease dumped in it.

    The fascination with his style kinda kinda confuse me. It low on abv and balance, and very high on the dry and painfully bitter. The reason it exists is to be able to drink more in theory , but it generally tastes awful mitigating the low abv.

    My cousin who is just getting into craft beer brought me a Berkshire Brewing Company growler that he bought at the store. It's a 64oz growler that gets distribution throughout NE. I always passed it up assuming, and now verified, it was incredibly flat. Why would they distro a growler? It just doesn't make sense

    Cooperstown Pale Ale. Not good. Bought a 6 pack at the tasting room just to be nice.

    Not exactly on topic, but is there somewhere here to pull up the beers with the worst scores?

    Stone Enjoy After Brett. I realized I don't like Bretts. Tastes like a funeral parlor smells...

    Brett can be really poorly utilized and totally destroy a decent beer.

    Jester King El Cedro is a phenomenal showcase of using it in moderation, and to wonderful effect.

    Somehow, it manages (I think), to make a multi-year old beer taste as though it was just hopped and poured from the fermenters yesterday.

    Well don't feel burned on the trade at all. I had the beer fresh as can be and it was not all that great. In fact even with the date code being relatively fresh I found it suitable for the drain. Just not very good. The brewery and pub make fresher beer. But the other bottling facility seems to be testing the limits of yeast generations.

    That of course is only speculation, but I tasted something unpleasant in several beers. To me it had hints of dead yeast. The hops were a secondary concern, I just couldn't enjoy the beer.

    I'm completely unafraid of a drain pour. Simply won't waste my time with something I'm not enjoying that much. What's the point? It's the cost of experimentation.

    DFH Fort. I made it through half the bottle and couldn't take anymore. Sweet, boozy mess of a beer.

    Adam from the Stone... I'm sorry if people liked it, but it just wasn't good. It was also fresh, so the hops really came through, and I hate strong hop presence in old ales/barleywines.

    It was not so bad. I started to really get the full taste after about 20 minutes as it warned up. I split it with 3 others so 3oz took me a bit to finish. No rush to open the rest of the four pack. If I opened one alone I might not be able to finish it.

    I'm glad I only grabbed one bottle. The warmer it got, the nastier it became. It was really bad IMO.

    I recently drain-poured Terrapin Liquid Lunch. I really, really tried to at least make it through it but couldn't. The strange, artificial jelly taste was just too much. Otherwise, I really never drain-pour. I think the only other time I did was when I realized that I'm not a "pumpkin beer" person.

    Duchesse de Bourgogne. I've had this one before but this was a beat bottle for sure. Instantaneous toilet pour reflex came out.

    For me, by far one of the most disgusting beers I've ever had. And, it was the first sour I ever tried. Needless to say, it turned me off the style entirely for a bit.

    AB's Best Damn Root Beer. I wanted to try the new hard sodas so I can better describe them to customers. It started off light and crisp, then flowed into the notes of gym locker and feet. So bad.

    KEEPonPOURING Initiate (165) Oct 28, 2015 Virginia

    Its not for everyone, thats for sure. Don't let it spoil your future sour tastes!

    One night I had two Rocheforts, the 10 and the 6. They both had this really sharp, nail polish remover flavor. I knew that it had to be bad bottles and it's just my luck that I got two bad bottles from two different styles! Both of them, down the drain.

    Their anniversary beer, as I understand it. Awesome label, awesome name, awesome adjuncts (whiskey soaked cocoa nibs and vanilla beans).

    Was bad - sour. Had to have been a bad bottle. Was a disappointment, for sure.
