Alright, you got me. But seeing that I don't think it is the holy grail of beer, not even close, I probably come off as hating it.

Seriously though, the absolute worst craft beer I've had, at least in recent memory, was a "Rye Cream Ale" from a small brewpub in Visalia, Brewbaker's. I swear they served me a glass full of loogies; so bad, I asked them to take it back.

Second place probably goes to Midas Touch.
Triple bock cost so much just to pour down the drain. It was the biggest disapointment ever, cost and flavor, I ever had in a craft brew

Just kidding. Have to say any of the fruit flavored Sam Adams "beers" are downright disgusting. I dig most SA stuff, but I can't choke that crap down.

I've never considered Sam Adams "craft beer". It seems like mass produced stuff marketed to the unknowing as "craft beer".


And Dogfish Head..............seriously................I refuse to pretend to like that stuff just because I'm "supposed to". I'd rather be honest....it's not that great!

I'm with you on that one. I've never had a beer from Dogfish Head that I liked. I'm definitely not one to waste beer and even if it tastes awful but I've dumped plenty of theirs.

Well, I've never dumped them, but I've certainly choked them down! I honestly don't see what the appeal is. I think some beers fall into that "I like it cause I'm supposed to like it" category. I don't fall for that.

I definitely don't see the appeal. I've got my own classification for some of beers they make. To me they fall into the "does anybody like me yet?" category. I feel like that's what they're asking themselves when they decide to mix up some of the stuff they do. They're making money god bless them but they sure aren't making any of MY money.

I'm an uncultured animal that will drink nearly anything but I disliked Dragon's Milk would probably never drink one again.

I too am a Maudite disliker. Maybe I do not understand the style enough to know what to expect, but the bottle I had was nothing but bananas! I like Hefe's but if I wanted bananas I would get a hefe. SA Cherry Wheat is another one.
