I actually like #9, the apricot does kind of smell like dirty gym socks though before you drink it.

Boatswain Heavy Lift Vessel from Minhas brewery in Monroe WI, they sell it at Trader Joes, it is way too syrupy for me to be called beer. I tried another from them after SWMBO picked them up for me, I figured "Free beer" but...dumped it after half a glass and picked up a magic hat #9 from a variety pack I had.

I agree that Dark Construct and Valkyrie CAN be good, but you are spot-on about the variability. When I was at the festival I had 2 Valkyrie's back-to-back. As I was waiting in line for the refill, the keg tapped out and had to be changed. The new keg had completely different color, aroma, flavor and cloudiness that the one I had just finished. Frustrating...

People's Farmer's Daughter Wheat

So bad I told the bartender I thought they had a bad keg of it on tap. Later after reading other's review I learned that's jut the way it tastes.

I was extremely disappointed with 16th, but I wouldn't put it up in the "worst" category. The weird bitter astringency from the lemon verbena was very unpleasant, though.

I picked up Knee Deep's Simtra Triple IPA recently, expecting an awesome beer made from Simcoe and Citra. The aroma was amazing, but there was a weird spoiled meat flavor in the aftertaste that made me pour out most of the bottle, just nasty.

The absolute worst craft beer I've had though, is Brewdog's Tokyo. Cloyingly sweet cough syrup and hot alcohol. I got about two sips in and poured out the rest of the $18 bottle (it should be noted that I didn't expect it to be very good, but I saw it and had the money to burn, so I went for it). I will never try any of Brewdog's other high grav offerings and I seriously doubt I'll ever try any of their other stuff on general principle either.

Ballast Point's Indra Kunindra is not one I'll try again. Also I HATED Avery Maharaja. To call that an Imperial IPA is a joke. It's a s****y Strong Ale if anything.

Not really a craft beer, this is a bud product, but yeah, that's my worst too. Bud Heavy+ grape Nyquil

Wild Blue might be the winner but I've had some nasty Rahr beers. I like the alt and winter beer but the oktoberfest tastes like it was filtered through trash.
