Perhaps a conundrum, but there are some beers that I just don't like. I ran into one beer that I really didn't like a couple of months ago in the Republic of Korea (a.k.a. South Korea)... Cass. I actually had to use a Heineken to wash my mouth out after having some Cass. Hell, Cass makes a warm, skunked can of PBR taste like manna from heaven.

Stay away.

Beautiful place, terrible beer. I'll take a warm Pilsen (from CR) over an ice cold Panama any day.

I remember when genetic products were all the rage. They came out with beer in a white can with black letters that said BEER. Was pretty bad.

There used to be a "Low Brew Society" with the best under $1.99 a six pack list.

There will be no further debate, period.
The 'beer' on the left is so far ahead, or behind if you will, that it isn't
funny. I thought this an apt juxtaposition.

There were several breweries, now thankfully defunct, in St. Louis when I was growing up there. Falstaff, Griesedick Brothers, and Stag. All were cheap and ensured devastating hangovers. They would achieve the desired effect while drinkng the swill. An analysis came back on Falstaff: "Your horse has dibetes."

It's from Canada, but it still sucks.

Isn't beer sort of like sex? Even bad beer is better than water. Yech! I tried that stuff once. Nasty!

^^^ worst of the acquired taste Neebee

Yeh, the Buckhorn is a favorite worst beer ever.

You kinda like it after awhile, and at the time I was drinking it, a buck fifty nine a six pack was unbeatable (early 80s)

A pile of dirt.

PBR tastes like a fine wine when compared to Angkor beer in Cambodia.

I have to quibble with Olympia being on the list. This was the first beer I ever had (in the sand dunes at Coronado Beach). Thought it was pretty good and two quarts of Oly became a staple for many years.

The others suck.

There were 40 oz. bottles called Little Brown Jugs that were horrible, but cheap.

Rheingold used to sponsor that famous TV show Archie's Tavern

Rheingold happed to make it on to the 25 beers to avoid at all costs list:

#1 Schaefer
#25 National Bohemian

Yeah, that's the real name of the awful swill. They used to be the radio sponsor for the St. louis Cardinal baseball team in the mid 1950's, and touted by the reknonwed Harry Carey. Blech!! Even my Dad, who drank almost any beer, wouldn't touch the stuff!

I have it on decent authority that this is the worst beer ever:

However, I think that this is the worst:

Put it this way, if given the choice between free Michelob and paying for other beer, I ante up...


A long way from where I started

Growing up in Saskatoon many many decades ago, the Carling Black Label Stich put up as one of his nominations for WBE (Worst Beer Ever) was actually the best beer available.

I somehow managed to get involved in a six-week road trip to Mexico when I was about twenty-one or twenty-two. Driving straight south from Sask through North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas made me realize how fortunate I was to live in Saskatoon -- both beer-wise and everything-wise -- but when we crossed the border into Mexico the first thing we did was pull into some little roadside tavern so that we could sample some of the amazing Mexican beer we'd heard so much about...

Well, I'm sitting here typing this, so you know I didn't die, but that first taste of Mexican beer opened up whole new vistas of ugly. Tasted like a horse had had first go at it, and then pissed it out before we got it.

No idea what brand it was, but it was the worst swill imaginable. No surprise, I suppose, because this was in 1970, the nadir of American beer history, and it was being served in a tavern in a border town that only American tourists would ever order a beer in.
