What's the worst craft brew (commercial) you've had?
 
Let's face it, not all craft brews are winners. We've all made at least one undrinkable homebrew and we've all had at least one craft brew that was so turrble we misspell terrible.

So, for me, I tried Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale tonight and it is an absolutely atrocious beer. I love bacon. I love maple syrup. But together in this beer...oh dear lord. It doesnít help that the flavor sticks to your palate, not that smokey bacon isnít delicious, but in this context? Iím usually forgiving in my reviews, but this, this is just, guh. Iíd rather drink the 22 of Brian Baroo I got one time that tasted like armpits than this.

Up until tonight, that Brian Baroo (3 Floyds) I had was far and away the worst craft brew I'd had. It seriously smelled and tasted of sweaty armpits and I'd gladly drink that before Voodoo Doughnut. I honestly can't think of anything else that I found offensive like those two, and VD really out did itself.

So, what say you?

Shipyard Summer Ale. It tastes exactly like nothing. Pretty amazing really, if you think about it.

I'll second the voodoo, it was f'n nasty. 4 of us couldn't finish the bottle.

There is this place called Dempseys in South Dakota and they make the most disgusting beer I have tasted. Everything is old/stale and has bad off flavors of butter.

Southern Tier - Imperial Creme Brule - too sweet for me when i was drinking it. Andygator (on tap) haven't had it in a bottle but every time i had it on tap (in same joint), it was bad. BYO just ran a piece on it, singing it's praise so I am willing to give the bottle a shot in case the place i drank it at wasn't taking care of their lines or their kegs.

Try having the creme brule beer with brownies after dinner. Have if as a dessert beer and that might change your mind. I hated it too the first go at it. But with some fresh baked brownies after a nice steak diner, and I was in heaven!

I liked that one, I didn't like the Pumking beer, that tasted overly sweet and I couldn't drink it. I ended up at my parents that night for coffee and cake and my mom and wife liked it though so not a total waste.


For worst craft beer? I still harbor a deep hatred toward Anderson Valley Solstice. Everything about the beer I should have liked, and I was on the beach to boot. I just could not drink it.

I really enjoy a number of pale ales but not this one.

Hands down, Legacy Midnight Wit. One of only two beers I've ever poured out (the other being DFH120, I really love IPAs, and I love most of the other DFH stuff. Don't see the fascination with this crap). Thought it was me....so I shared the rest with five friends. All dumped. It wasn't infected or anything. Just horrible.
