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.

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.

Ah, man, that was my teenage beer. A good beer for teenage hooliganism.

Had a "beer" in Bhutan--Druk 11,000 I believe it was called. Tasted a bit like a yak urine sample--the only beer I've ever dumped out. In comparison, the PBR's smuggled in from Tibet tasted good...that one time. Sorry no pics

Ghost,
remember the beer in the bar in Desperado?

Dispenses with a belching sound, and then there is the Cheech Marin response to the patrons' question; "We piss in it (,and that's not all,...")

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...

Bullshit. Hops are cheap. They grow TONS of hops here in Idaho.
They range, like all things, from meager to the sublime.

There are SEVERAL actual undrinkable brews, though, I'll concede that.

I don't know where you get the idea that hops are cheap. Prices have been going up like crazy, and there has even been a bit of a shortage.

Cpt. or Skully, there's actually a global shortage of hops.

Maybe that's WHY we grow Tons? Hmmmmm?
Crops that pay are awesome.

There are quite a few craft brewers about, as well. Look out, Oregon!

Steel Reserve, Colt 45, King Cobra.
Bud light, coors, and all those aren't beers, just beer flavored water.
