Do you watch Nascar? I would put money on it.
OT - Worst Beer
What sorority do you belong to?
I was partying a few years back being college students everyone drinks natty, keystone etc. Well being drunk my friend and I found the most interesting beer ever. American Light. Never heard of it never have seen it in stores, and could taste how shitty it was even after the point where all beers taste the same.
Red Dog. I was hammered and went to a frat party with my friends in my freshmen year. That's the only beer that they had which is weird, but I guess it's because I got there so late. When I first tried it, it tasted so bad that I didn't want to take any more sip after that. Even when I'm drunk, it taste like shit.
Old Milwaukee is close second.
Funny, I don't mind PBR, Keystone, Miller, Natty and other cheap beers. I guess it's different taste for different people.
Just drank a few La Fin Du Monde's tonight while on the town in KC. "The End of the World," brewed in Montreal, may be the finest beer in North America.
So you're forcing me to do a 180. I drank quite a few 40 Oz'ers of that fine French beer, Goe-bel's, back in the day.
The worst beer is stale beer. But it was free. So I drank that, too.
Bud Select 55, MGD 64, and Keystone Light are terrible. They're not offensive tasting, because they're basically water. They're the best beers for going to the bathroom a lot and not having a good time.
As for worst tasting, I'm going to have to go with Leinenkugel's sunset wheat. It tastes like fruity pebbles.
Never ride the 211 train.
Keystone (not keystone light)
And my personal least favorite beer:
Milwaukees best light special reserve... That shot was like 10 dollars for.a 30 with bottle deposit (or so said the shitty frat that gave it to me).
i dont get how any beer that is bought by someone else and given to you can be called bad ....
ITS FREE BEER ... one of my favorite things in the world
that being said i wouldnt spend my money on it
... Hamms beer, that is pure skunk. The bar by me does a 9 dollar hamms special all you can drink, ive never seen anyone drink more than 10. Take a miller light and leave it outside to get warm, than put it in the fridge. Do that about 5 more times and you have a stale nasty skunk beer that still is better than hamms. It's 9 bucks for 30 if you think you can handle it.
Genesse Cream ale (as mention above)
Rainier (they sold the first 36 pack?)
Malt Liquer: St Ides, King Cobra.
Good bad beers:
Old make me wake funny
the Beast family
Many of which I have not tried (nor do I want to). My personal worst is Tusker Lager from Kenya. It tastes like the smell of the zoo.
Old-y but good-y from our friends Down Un-dah ....
"American beer is like sex in a canoe: its f-cking near water."
A beer that is 120 proof can't be that great, right?
It was $1.79, including deposit in the late '90s when I was at M, and I drank a lot of it. 1.5 bottles and you're done.
I tried it again about a year ago and it's horrible.
pink can, overweight swimsuit models from the 1920's on the can, and the slogan: "the pale, stale ale with the foam on the bottom"
Goats' Breath. Found this beauty at a drive thru in Kentucky about 10 years ago.
My top 4 Worst
1. Milwaukee's Best
2. Miller High Life
4. Red Dog
I do enjoy PBR because of Charleys specials, but that's about it.
rhymes with shits.
and missed this fun thread. My older brother was three classes ahead of us at Michigan, so he was our go-to man until our 21st. Never ask an older sibling to "get whatever they want" because the result is usually several quarts of Blatz. That swill tasted like it was made with well water and fermented in a rusty drum.
Hudy Delight Light Beer is the worst. Just another bad product from the State of Ohio.
Hudepohl started out doing it through contract brewing, and sometime in the nineties Jim Koch and crew bought the brewery.
I agree with you about Hudy Delight, though. Awful stuff.
Hudy Delight tastes like something that only eats shit crawled into the vats and died. There is absolutely no worse beverage (let alone beer) ever produced by anyone anywhere. I actually threw away 20 cans out of a 24 can case when I bought it.
Miller High Life...played BP with it last weekend and felt sick the rest of the night. Never had that with any beer before in my life...never gonna drink that again.
a few others sub-leased a house on Arch Street which we called the pit. A very frugal guy sub-leased the enclosed front porch(!) for about $25 a month. His beer of choice was Drewry's, which, as I recall, sold for $4 a case.
I bought one bottle from him; worse beer ever.
Not sure where it's from, but it's popular in Qatar. 13% though.
But since Carlsberg bought them, they brew it throughout Europe now. I know they brew it at Baltkia in St Pete for example.
It's the beer of Danish kings.
The worst beer I had to drink was Michelob Ultra Dragonfruit Peach beer. A few friends we had were girls and they insisted on only drinking that beer when they played beer pong. Unfortunately any left over were also used as punishment for the loser of an NCAA '08 game. My friends, it is terrible.
Also, I tried a gluten free beer once. I can't remember the name of it but it was disgusting.
an International Field Study for my MBA in Russia this summer, they sell 3 litters of what they claim is beer. While it is very cheap, under $3, it has a taste similar to what I would expect from cat urine.
You might as well piss in your mouth.
This ^^^^ is the worst beer I've ever had, and I've had just about everything else in the thread.
Freshmen year in South Quad, myself and a few others had very little money for beer. Goebel was too rich for our blood, if that gives you any indication.
Kroger had a special on Beer. No name beer. It had a white label with red trim with big bold black letters that simply read BEER. It was $6 or $7 for a case, if I recall. It sucked. But we didn't care.
If you go to Super Liquor IV (badass name) on State, you can also buy "Gin" and "Vodka".
I'll say Old Style Light... Being from Chicago, I make my friends try it when they visit just to see their faces. Also Red Dog is awful. Schmitt's Gay is pretty terrible too. Sorry in advance.
Time to start drinking.
Cave Creek Chili Beer. Just ghastly.
My least favorite beer comes from one of my favorite brewers, Sam Adams. I usually love the stuff, especially the seasonals and other limited editions, but Cranberry Lambic (found only in the holiday seasonal pack I believe) is simply terrible. So terrible that I ended up pouring it down the drain after half a bottle. That has never happened before or since, as I consider it a sin to waste beer, but that was just foul.
Tastes like cough syrup.
And I like fruit beers. I love a good kriek, or a beer like New Glarus' Belgian Red.
Worst: Red Dog
Best "worst" beer: Milwaukee's Best Light -- stuff isn't terrible.
Red Dog is the worst.
Best "worst" beer is Old Milwaukee.
Out of all the cheap light beers (30s), the best has to be BUSCHHHHH LIGHT
Maybe it's not the absolute worst beer in the world...but I did punch a guy in the arm for getting a pitcher of it when it was his turn.
I think I've figured some things out.
#1: If you would actually prefer a "can of bud" or something to just about any craft brewer, or even a big name micro brewer like Sam Adams, you're not allowed to vote. I'm not saying you can't like Bud, which isn't bad stuff at all, just can't actually prefer it given a straight up choice.
#2: If a beer is flavored (lemon, cherry, lime, etcetera) and you don't like the flavor, that's fine, but that's not a bad beer. That's just you not liking the flavor. A bad beer is the kind that the whole thing tastes like dog crap smells or makes you wake up feeling like your skeleton has holes in it or something.
Fruit can be added as either fresh fruit or as a syrup, which can include artificial flavors. While a bad brewer can ruin anything, syrups are the the most likely to be used in bad beer. Fresh fruit can be heavenly, although I've had some decent beers which used syrup.
One of the worst beers I've had was the Cherry Rail Lager, which may have used fresh cherries. Honestly, it was so bad it was hard to tell. Vile, vile stuff. (The sad thing is that the owner is a friend of a friend.)
Beer itself has a long history of flavoring additives of many types, including spices, fruit, herbs, flowers, twigs and of course hops.
Any kind warm, doesn't matter, it is all disgusting warm
Milwaukee's Special Reserve Ice.
Makes Beast seem like a good drink.
Worst beer I've ever had -- which makes it pretty damned bad! -- is Beer 30 Light
It's made mostly from corn adjuncts, and therefore tastes much like bad soda (which is made from corn syrup)
As I imbibed this disgrace to beveragedom, I could hardly tell I was drinking beer. Afterwards, I had a Stroh's --yes, a Stroh's-- and it tasted like the nectar of the gods in comparison. Just sayin'
