Had a Tailgate IPA, out of San Diego, at a brewfest - tasted like green apple juice with a bit of beer and hops, maybe they rushed it for the event? I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Worst I think was Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian IPA - I think I paid $14 for a 6er. Worse than Rogue's voodoo maple

I didn't read through all 23 pages, so sorry if this is a repeat, but by far the worst beer I have ever had was the Pizza Beer:

Just couldn't drink the stuff...

Another beer I had trouble swallowing was a beer from Green Flash (maybe their Imperial India Pale Ale? I'd have to look it up when I got home). Basically there was an overpowering garlic flavor that just did not go with beer in my opinion.

DFH120. Why on earth they would try to make a beer taste and affect you like jet fuel is beyond me.

OBX Beer. Had the same label as you would find on a bumper sticker. I think it was a pale ale but it was just horrible.

The DFH/Stone/Victory creation Saison Du Buff. Like drinking beer made out of wood.

Saranac Maple Porter.

It was the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival. Coors was not invited!

I'd take a Coors over that nasty Lambic ANY DAY. It's the Banquet beer!

I wouldn't say it's near the WORST ever, but I have to agree that it seems like a big gimmick. I love the 60 and 90 minute, but the 120 just tastes like vodka with a shot of 90 minute IPA. Nasty.

The point is a fun thread where we share our dislikes and find others love what we hate. I've seen several beers others hate that I like, doesn't offend me.
Yeah. It IS fun complaining about things. Let's talk about airplane food and DMV lines next!

Yup, it is fun complaining! Part of life, my friend. We complain, get it off our chest and feel a bit better that someone has heard us and may agree.

When's the last time you got food on a flight? Used to be if it was during a meal time, now it's only on flights 12+ hrs.

My DMV is fantastic. I love going there. They're fast, friendly, and I've yet in my 10 years in Lafayette been disappointed when going.

Again, the point is to first have fun, then provide folks of similar taste clues of brews to avoid. We're not looking for folks with sticks up their butts on this thread.

complaining rules, i dont get why so many people are against critical discussion, its healthy and fun.

ive found over time that the people i get along with, it doesnt matter so much what they like, but what they hate (beer, music, life)
