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.

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."

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.

Sep 2, 2012 - 07:18pm PT
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.

When I was studying in China in the early 1990s, just about the only beer that didn't use formaldehyde as a preservative was Tsingtao. And there are a shocking number of breweries in China... my friends and I traveled a lot and made a point to try every beer we could -- making sure to never drink more than one big bottle before switching to Tsingtao. They all, absolutely universally, were total dog piss.

PBR is misery in a can along with all cheap canned beers. I know because ive choked down thousands.. Those cheap beers dont use any real hops they use a chemical to make a hop like taste. In Bishop you can get 5$ twelve packs of Olympia at the Grociery outlet. After about nine of those on an empty stomach the miseries of freezing and suffering through a Bishop Winter vanish and im ready to go highballing. Worst beer i ever had though was an Alaskan beer called Silvergulch. It was actually undrinkable...

now i see on their website they recommend it paired with beef stew, the two tastes have now been conflated in my memory. current theory is the new guy spilled beef stew into the batch ... yeah that would pretty much explain it

Ha! Carling's Black Label! My dad would go through a case of that stuff on a weekend pretty much by himself. It was in bottles though. But I don't think he was drinking it for the taste.

I don't think I've had a can of Bud or similar US Beer that appears on ads at large sporting events in 20 plus years. But back in the day... way back... someone once dared me to drink a can of bud warm. I did just to win, but that shite was nasty. No wonder they promote chillin' the heck out of it. Numbs your taste buds or something like that. The same probably applies to many other canned beers and beyond.

Interesting that this thread just popped back up. Last night my wife and I went to dinner with another couple, which goes directly against my anti-social tendencies. Anyway, we went to a BYOB joint and the other guy insisted on bringing the beer. Ugh, he is known to be a beer snob to the point of paying a lot of money for what I would consider really crappy beer (ya know, flavored beer).

This didn't taste bad, in fact it was quite good, but a half hour later it was instant pounding headache,

Wasn't just me or a matter of volume either. We split the bottle.

Keep this at 35F or less for most satisfaction

According to this article 1) I need to try Steel Reserve and 2) I need to be wearing a white coat more often.

I imagine that I were to combine those two things, anything might be possible.

Had most of those mentioned above, back in my dirtbag days (you never know, those days could be in my future...but for the grace of dog:-), but I'm still gonna stick with these babys, do you want quality or do you want quantity?

Any beer sold in Utaaahhhhr.
Still only 3.2%

Poor devils still have to make a run to Evanston to get Real Beer just as we had to Back In The Bad Ole Days. And then make the 90 miles back in the middle of the night without the driver drinking any of the good stuff?
yeah….get real.
At least it's all freeway now
High Traverse

Ehh. Most of the 3.2 microbrews in Utah from Wasatch, Squatters, Uinta, Bohemian, etc are much better than the swill people are mentioning here. And then there is EPic, which doesn't make any 3.2 beer, including various 10%ABV+ imperial styles and has won various awards.
We're not quite as much a beer backwater as we used to be.

The worst beer I think I've had is Cave Creek Chili beer.

Damn, at one party or another I think I've had 18 of those 25 beers to avoid.

I've got a special beef with Coors Light though, as some fool drinks it on his commute home and my property is one of the areas he cleans out the car before he gets home, I accumulate at least a six of empties a week. Once in awhile he seems determined to reform his ways, and in what I imagine can only be revulsion he lobs a bag of cans that still contain one or two full Coors Light tallboys. I don't care, it all goes in the recycle bin when I clean up.

To apprehend the varmint I think I need to spend a few evenings sitting in a low lawn chair near the road with a wrist rocket and a bag of marbles, but sadly, or perhaps providentially, life is to busy these days for that kind of entertainment.

Leaving malt liquor and flavored concoctions off the list...

Blatz.

Hands down, THE worst beer I've ever tried to drink. And I've tried many hundreds.

When Walt, Duane, and I spent our summer in Chamonix, we constantly worked at finding the highest alcohol per dollar. This first consisted of cheaper wine, all the way down to the big tank at the grocery store where you could fill up any container for about a buck per liter. The dollar was insanely strong back then, interest rates and inflation were sky high in the states during around the end of Reagan's first term. That meant that at 10 francs per dollar, you could live high on the hog for 3 bucks per day.

We had all walked by the local butcher shop, which was cool because it had hanging legs of all manner of hoofed animals, and not chilled, either. I guess you went in there and just pointed to that horse hind quarter and he buzz sawed it off for you.

They had this beer there in the window...the only beverage sold there. I now know that it was Chimay, the Belgian Trappist Ale, which has been brewed for centuries by opening vats of wort and letting whatever wild yeast that fell from the sky ferment the ale. It is vile and despicable, and even found in the states now.

We found that only two of the suckers would bring even us close to vomit status. It was officially the Olde English of Europe. You can find it at a good liquor store, and I think that it still has a real cork similar to a champagne bottle.

I have some blisteringly funny Walt show accounts from that summer, but the Chimay sent him off into another universe even by Walt standards.

Walt and I would fill up old plastic one liter mild jugs with the vile cheap wine from the grocery store tank and take it with us. I remember him getting super torched and shocked a bunch of Poles or other eastern Euro's. This was before the iron curtain fell, and Walt would tell them the craziest stuff about democracy to twist their heads. I had to kind of hide, lest fists fly. I rescued him from a couple of good ass beatings that summer...

Chimay. It tastes like somebody boiled stinky old running shoes and dirty socks, but it was so strong that I anoint it the LSD of the alcohol clan.
