I've had a love/hate relationship with Steel Reserve for quite awhile. When I was touring in a band and had next to no cash, it was what I drank when I got home. A few 24's, some fights on PPV, and some buddies to catch up with made for a fun night!

Those days have passed, and now, when I catch a whiff of old Steelie, it sorta makes me sick...like real sick, haha. I tried to drink it again recently, and I truly couldn't stomach it.

I also tried some Harpoon winter warmer the other night... Now, don't get me wrong, I'd never compare it to Steel Reserve, but it was pretty nasty. Overly malty, borderline cloying sweetness, with an obnoxious artificial spice overtone.... Definitely disappointed.

I'd have to say Fat Cat was the worst I've ever had. I love the can, but it's dreadful..

Heres a good use for it:

12oz PBR
2 packets zesty italian dressing mix
2 jars peperoncinis - juice, peppers and all
3lbs beef roast

Throw it in the crockpot and forget about it for 8 or more hours. Should shred on its own when done, serve it on buns with a white cheese. Gooooooood stuff!
I do a very similar recipe minus the beer and dressing mix.

Cave Creek's Chili,Beer would have to be the most undrinkable. Though, I guess I couldn't call it bad. I'm sure it's a fine example of what it is meant to be. The worst would have to be Shipyard's Pumpkinhead. There's no body and no malt backbone to speak of; just an overwhelming artificial cinnamon flavor.

Wild Blue, I picked one up in a mixer 6er and the label drew my eye. It tasted like steel reserve mixed with blueberry abomination. Hands down the worst beer ever

Another nod to Crazy Horse. Got some at party as I "secret santa" gift. Was pretty pleased since I was under 21. The stuff is vile. I think I saw it at the liqure store for $1.99 for a 40. Old E is up there, my college roommates go to favorite. Lastly the plain wrap beer my friends bought for a big party. Even at 17 when I thought coors light and bud dry where the best thing since sliced bread I couldn't get that stuff down.

Fixed- the only beer I ever poured 5 out of 6 down the drain. My sister-in-law brought them and had (part of) one. After trying to give them away to guests for six months, we finally decided it was a waste of space and dumped them.

There are two for me. That one Chili beer that has the pepper in it. Nasty just tastes and smells like pickles.

The other would be Sam Adams' Blackberry Witbeir. Tastes like perfume to the point that it even has a soapy character. *blech* And I actually like flower flavored things. Though after it sat for a couple of months it did become more palatable.

A couple years ago, I was invited to a party at my supervisor's house. Apparently her church had had some sort of charity event that they had several kegs of beer at, and she had graciously volunteered to take the leftover, untapped keg home. At her party, we had all brought beer, not knowing that she intended to surprise her employees with a keg, so we left it untapped. When my supervisor went on vacation 3 days later, I inherited the still untapped keg ("Here, you're Canadian, so you probably know what to do with this"). Free keg of beer? Hell yes, I know what to do with that. Unbeknownst to me, it was Miller Light. And by this point it had been unrefrigerated in Florida for the better part of a month. I brought it home, put it in a barrel of ice, invited some friends over, put hockey on TV, got out a bunch of pint glasses and prepared to do what one would do with a free keg of beer.... Long story short - after choking down 3-4 hard-fought pints apiece, we put about 3/4 of the keg down the drain and bought a case or 2 of Newcastle...

Moral of the story: There is no such thing as a free keg of beer.
