I drink infected / bad home brews all the time. We were gifted a ton of them for our BJCP sensory studies.

The beer analyst in me can't stop trying to figure wtf went wrong.

At my last homebrew club meeting a guy had brought in some experimental beer that he made where had put a bunch of wormwood in it. That was just undrinkable. I mean, truly awful. I've had infected beers that tasted better.

During college I drank a warm Mickey's 40 that had been in the sun all day at the beach. Horrible. Remember trying to put it in the water awhile to cool it down but the water was hot. So then I had a warm beer still with salt and sand all over it.

No funny story really. Went to the beach and didn't have to drive so I wanted to get more drunk and we ran out of beer and money.

Probably that abortion of an American wheat I made for my second batch. I drank it all because I'm a total fooking idiot and should let it get friendly with the sewer.

This is a dangerous game. Never let one of your friends play it if they like to tell stories when drunk, and like to use their hands when they tell stories. Thankfully, the party wasn't at our house, so the carpet and vases that got destroyed weren't ours.

Worst I've ever consumed on purpose? I had a full keg of...something. I think it was supposed to be a light pale ale or cream ale, but something went wrong and there was definitely a funky clove/cider flavor. Ran out of beer pong beer at a party at our house so I just swapped QDs onto that keg. A couple people who drank from that keg haven't been to one of my parties since. Thankfully, they're all people I don't really like anyway who I've never let try one of my good beers

Do any of you guys remember the "generic" beer phase from the mids 80's? We used to get cases of this stuff and head out to the drive in movie. You weren't supposed to have alcohol but nobody ever cared. We'd drink it right out in the open.

I don't know who actually brewed this stuff, but it was generally pretty foul.

The generic I recall was called USA beer - U Save Alot.
If you dropped a can, the aluminum was so thin, the can split open.

Steel Reserve kicked off the 'nake' fight in my neighborhood. A grown man fight. Bad beer.

Some chocolate milk beer at Flying Saucer. Hey, chocolate, milk and beer. I like all those. Must be good. No. Not at all.

That is seriously wrong to bring up generic beer. I completely pushed that out of my head. My sphincter immediately puckered when I saw the picture. That stuff was seriously WRONG and would always cause some awful beer $h*ts.

When I graduated from high school I moved to Belgium for a year for a student exchange. I had all the money that I managed to save up during my senior year, plus the 60Euros a month that my Rotary club gave me since they were hosting me. When I was with my host families I drank great beer. For a matter of fact, for the first 5 months I was there I drank great beer. Then I started to run out of money.

There are two beers that one should never drink in Belgium. One I remember clear as day because all of the exchange students would pound a .5l can or two of it when they needed a cheap, quick buzz to get into party mode. It is called Carapils (thats right) and I swear to god it is made from straight carapils with maybe an oz of hops per BBL. It costs a Euro a can. The second beer... I cannot remember the name of it for my life, but it was 12% ABV and it tasted like satans anus the day after he eats taco bell. The beer comes in 8, 10, and 12% so if you're in Belgium, and are feeling cheap, for the love of all things sacred, do not drink it....
