I actually like Strohs.

My worst beer was a Rasberry Lambic that I had at Michigan Winter Beer Festival in GR two years ago. Tasted like Rasberry vomit. Other raved about it, so what do I know.

This is followed closely by Leinenkugel's Berrry Weiss. I like some Leiney's, but not stuff can go straight back to hell.

No story, just bad beer.

Great night he pissed himself like 3 times cause he couldnt get his fly down.
hahahahaha!!!!! I want to leave work right now, go home and play "Forty Hands".......Pure Genus!!!!!!



My worst beer is Silver Thunder......HANDS DOWN! We were buying beer to tailgate a concert. We were about 21, 22 years old, still in college so money was a little tight and since we were fairly new to legal drinking, we weren't knowledgeable when it came to good beer. We had X amount of dollars....our total came to X-$9 so we had and extra 9 bucks. How do you split that between 5 guys? You don't, you walk take another lap around the store and look for something that cost $9: Silver Thunder

I think it was the next day that I decided that life is too short to drink bad beer.

Going to school in Milwaukee we had a lot of bad beer around. Standard issue for keg partys was Busch light delivered with 2 bags of ice and a sleeve of cups for $30/keg.
One day we decided to "save a buck" well $2 actually and had them send over Milwaukee Best Ice Light. - Gross-
I tasted like an MGD that got a little too warm so to fix it they threw a twinkie or two in there and re-chilled it...

But the all time best (worst) Involved trying to save money on liquor. My housemates and I used to pregame on saturday by spliting a handle of Captain Morgan before we hit the house partys/bars. Every Satyurday (barring a match) was the same routine: Wake up at noon, hit the McD's drive through for supersize Cokes with our Big Mac meals, drive to Badger Beer and get 2 cases beer and a handle of captain, pour captain into the half empty supersize Cokes...
One saturday the "helpful" guy at the store suggests an alternate spiced rum that tastes just like Captain and for the cost of 2 handles of Captain we could get a case (12) 750ml bottles of Mohawk Rum.
We couldn't even finish one bottle. We left the rest of the case in the house when we moved out 2 years later. The new occupants thanked us for the "sweet score" ah to be young and foolish...I always wanted to findout how much they left behind...

I don't even want to remepber the time we made jello shots with generic 151 rum...

Opaque beer in Antiqua, TWI. This is made by fermenting a very thin mash, then bottling it, grain, husks, yeast, everything. Alcoholic gruel.

I once went to a house party my friends were throwing in downtown Madison. Big party, lots of people. I asked what they had for beer. Their response?

My friends: We've got everything!
Me: Define "everything".
My friends: Coors Light and Natural Light!
Me.... F*ck it. *buys a cup*

When I left the party 3 hours later I made it across the street and puked all over a Birch tree. I don't even remember walking home (which was a mile away).

Tequiza.....

But, I always like Mickey's Ice - there were three different flavors, and you never knew which one you'd get until you were about 1/2 way thru and started to warm up:

1) skunk
2) satan's ass
3) champagne

(3 rarely happened)
