Worst commercial craft brew (excluding anything with the name "Budweiser" in it, of course) I've had so far is the Sierra Nevada Kellerweis. 3 sips and I poured it down the kitchen sink drain. Maybe it's just not my style.
I also like the ridgeback a lot

I pretty much hate Sam Adams Cherry Wheat (Robitussin) and Abita's Purple Haze was moderately awful also. Maybe I'll come around now that my palate is evolving, but I don't know.

I used to love that beer. I guess you could say it's the one that got me into craft brews. (Though I now know it's MC owned.) I definitely don't drink it sny more though.

Second that on Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. Looked sooo good...tastes sooo bad!! Probably the worst I've had so far.

I don't think it qualifies as craft brew, but the Amsterdam Maximator is by far the worst beer I've ever had. Whoever brewed this crap deserves to have their ass kicked.

Somehow, this stuff made me immediately hungover, completely bypassing the buzzed and drunk part. Each sip gave me an increasingly bad headache and upset stomach. Amazing, really.

Here are some comments about it on beer advocate:

"Like Satan's own urine... the taste was something akin to beer spilled into mop water, with a healthy dose of rubbing alcohol thrown in."

"This stuff tastes like my mouth after I used to wake up from college benders when I forgot to brush my teeth. Alcohol, slightly sweet grainy flavor, cheap hooch, aftertaste of nail polish remover and a touch of hops."

"Smell is repulsive. Honestly the homeless people I've seen drinking this crap could've pissed back into the can and barely told a difference.
Taste is miserable at best, downright offensive at worst"

Sam Adams Double Agent-IPL. Tasted and smelled like really cheap perfume dumped into Bud Light.

Sam Adams did a winter seasonal a few years back that tasted like they had fermented it inside a rotten tree.

But it was great when added to a stew.

A few weeks ago I tried Sam Adams whitewater ipa at a local Bww. They don't have much of a craft brew selection, so finally seeing an ipa on tap I asked for a sample. So glad I didn't buy a whole beer. This beer is nothing g like an ipa!!! And I am an ipa Guy! It tasted like a wheat beer infused with apricots! Nothing an ipa should represent. I have never been a Sam Adams fan, I did not know this was a Sam Adams product or I would have avoided it completely.
