Some kind of bacon smoked porter I tried last year at a beer festival in Quebec. To say it was godawful is an understatement. It tasted like sucking on a band-aid that had been roasted over a fire.

I also had a dead guy ale that must've been mishandled. It tasted like a whole team of sweaty football players had taken a foot bath in it.

There are many piss poor craft brews running around. One that comes to mind is Shipyard Monkey Fist ipa. Just a bitter unpleasant mess.

I've only had 4 drain pours, so they all get my label as 'worst commercial beer'.

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy- tasted like Pledge furniture polish
Rivertown Pestilence- smelled like puke... tasted like puke
Rivertown War- way over smoked. Tasted like chewing on a cigar
Sam Adams Triple Bock- tasted like soy sauce

Grand canyon brewing co. in williams arizona is absolutely horrible. I tried all their beers. They seem to have the same bad after taste.

Big River Pilsner (chattanooga, tn) tastes like skunky PBR. Bought a 6 pack months ago, and 3 are still in the back of the fridge.

Bluegrass brewing company makes some delicious brown ale, but their version of a Hefeweizen is disgusting. I drank 2 bottles to see I'd I can get into it, but couldn't, so I kept them in the fridge for unsuspecting friends, and girlfriend, do drink the rest for me

Is Leinenkugal considered craft?

I pretty much don't care for anything they make, but that nasty-assed Fruity Pebbles tasting Sunset Wheat is the worst beer in the history of beer.

I've had great beers at all the Raleigh area breweries so I didn't think twice about buying tickets to a wing festival at Roth Brewing a few weeks ago. The wings were okay but the beers, and I tried 3, were awful.

Their cinnamon porter had overwhelming hot fusels that gave the beer a cinnamon rubbing alcohol taste. The Raleigh Red, an amber, was bland and watery with zero hop flavor and aroma. The honey hefeweizen was drinkable but crystal clear with no hefeweizen characteristics.

I felt bad for all the hipsters drinking these beers and trying to act like the beers were great.

Haven't had a lot of drain beers but the one that comes to mind is Lagunitas Lucky 13. It was just... terrible. I can only presume it's a style thing as I know at least 1 other person who really enjoyed it but... ugh. hated it.
