Blatz, 1982. Mixed bag though. It was awful but I could buy lots of it. After the first one I didn't care as long as I kept it really cold.

Rolling Rock is nectar of the gods compared to some Sam Adams fruit beers, and Natty light

Bud Light Chelada. The worst thing ever, and I only had a sip in college and I still remember it. As far as craft goes, the worst was a 2008 bottle of DFH Fort. Tasted like raspberry juice and grain alcohol. Don't know went wrong there, but every other Dogfish Beer I ever have had has been enjoyable.

I won't even try Chelada. I hate tomato juice (and bloody marys) so the thought of mixing that with beer just makes me avoid it like the plague.

I suppose one of these days I will end up judging fruit beers or vegetable/spice beers in some competition, and end up with a tomato beer....

Anything that came out of the trunk of my brothers 70 Chevelle had the opportunity to be the worst beer ever. It all depended on the seasons. If it was late fall / early spring you had a chance at beer that hadn't undergone either freezing or extremely hot temps.

Barring that it has to be anything Michelob. I don't understand wht they are still in business. Somehow regular Michelob gave me the squirts every time I drank it and that was from bottles.

Down here in southern New Mexico they drink that crap like it is going out of style. Nothing is better than going to a buddies house only to be offered a beer and getting a chelada!

I'm going to have to go with Grolsch. I bought a four pack for the nice swing top bottles, and I'll never do that again. Absolutely the most disgusting beer I can imagine drinking. I seriously poured the remaining 3 down the drain. Actually it was the toilet, since I was worried the smell might come up from my sink when I was trying to cook food. And this is from someone who spent most of my early 20's drinking King Cobra 40's, and Mickey's when I had a little more cash. I've even FINISHED a Steel Reserve 40 once, and I'd do that again before I'd drink a Grolsch.

Wasn't me who made that post, but I agree. With both of you.

He indicated they were the swing-top bottles. Those happen to be green. Why some brewers put beer that gets exported across the Atlantic into green bottles is beyond me, but the result is an inevitable skunk bomb. Same thing with Pilsener Urquell and Heineken - the latter makes me snicker every time a douchebag drinking the stuff (typically straight from the bottle) refer to themselves a beer snob, almost inevitably as part of a complaint about how they are "too" picky about beer.

But if it's from a can (and I assume the same for draught), it's alright. Certainly not horrible. Although of the three main euro-skunks I mentioned, Pilsener Urquell is the most notable - pretty much just as bad as the others when bottled, but when it's from a can or a keg that's reasonably fresh, it's actually a fantastic beer.
