1. Jakob Best, ironically enough. Laser sucked pretty badly as well.

2. If it's made in America, or FOR America, you can count my vote against it.
Bottled Heineken in Germany is the same thing we get here.

On tap? That's an entirely different story. The real European stuff is lots better.

How I miss Brand beer :(

8. My major complaint with Heineken...
...is that it's REALLY easy to get a "skunk" bottle. I stopped buying it long ago after opening one too many skunks.

126. I've never had anything *but* a skunk bottle of Heiniken
Edited on Sat Dec-15-07 12:15 PM by Richardo
After the first three in a row, I figured that's just how the shit tastes.

Heineken is my choice for the poll. x(

I think I might have only given it a second chance, but after tossing out that last six-pack, that was it.

13. Dude, there's some great American beers!
You just gotta keep away from the mass market stuff!
You can't write off out small brewers!

http://www.newglarusbrewing.com/Beers.cfm

New Glarus Spotted Cow FTW.

Their Rsapberry Tart framboise is absolutley delicious! (Then again, I do enjoy flavored beers.)

79. I'm a friend of flavored beers, such as the Belgian Lambic ales.
I do like some of the small breweries, and wish that I could still drink (alcoholism, d'oh) as Taverner keeps posting about all of those small brews that I'll bet are pretty good...

See if you can get fresh Trappist Ale in your area (on tap). Worth the search. :toast:

91. Oh, me, too, me too! I hate the taste of regular beer but am jealous when I see people drinking it
and enjoying it because it looks so good. But the Lambic Belgian beers - "aux framboises" is my favorite -
eeee-lish! In fact, thanks for reminding me. Gotta go out and get some for the holidays tomorrow - if I can get
through the 8" of snow on the ground.

78. We have to agree to disagree now that we're into relative perspective.
I don't like the Sierra Nevada beers... :shrug:

Guinness was where I'd start, as a standard. Fresh Trappist Ale, and other fresh brews are where I found my friends.

:toast: regardless!

83. I guess I wasn't sure how much experience you had with
American microbreweries - there are several excellent ones out there. I just threw Sierra Nevada out there as it is sort of a "go to" beer for me...I can find it just about anywhere locally. Bell's out of Kalamazoo, MI makes several excellent brews; Rogue makes a great variety of stouts, Stone in San Diego makes some great ales, Dogfish Head IPA is fantastic, Goose Island in Chicago has a great IPA. Southern Tier in upstate N.Y. and Surly in the Twin Cities are great finds that I managed to get a hold of when I visited my family in those towns. Three Floyds and AleSmith are supposedly awesome - I've yet to find their products on the shelf, so I can't really speak for myself with regards to their products.

Whatever you preferences are, :toast: to good beer!

fresh Hefeweizen...I'm on the wagon so I couldn't test it, but it smelled heavenly.

Yes, Fresh Good Beer! :toast:

As if the U.S. is the only country with mass-produced beer.

Guinness sold in the U.S. is made in Canada. Deal with it, snobs.

127. In Holland there is. I learned that the other day at Total Wine.
I was perusing the Amstel Light stack and the older gent next to me asked where I thought the regular Amstel is. I said that I'd never heard of it, and assumed Amstel Light was just a light version of Hieneken. He said that he'd had regular Amstel in Holland when he was there. Very popular.

I love Amstel Light.

29. 'IC Light' was even worse
I didn't think it would be possible to produce a worse beer than Bud Lite etc., but Iron City managed it. I see that Iron City went out of business in the years after I was in Pittsburgh, but has now been resurrected; does anyone know if they've brought The World's Worst Beer back too?

Iron City was the refreshing beer of which I had 5 pints at Primanti Brothers in the early afternoon of Sept 11, 2001 when waiting for my mom to come pick me up because all the busses had stopped running regularly in Pittsburgh. It was delicious.

39. Nah, it's an association thing...
...the Hamm's wasn't the problem, but he's linked those sandwiches and Hamm's in his mind and it was easier for him to give up Hamm's than it was for him to give up tuna fish sandwiches, so Hamm's became the inevitable scapegoat.

68. I have a friend who left a half-eaten Subways crab salad sandwich...
...under the front seat of her car for about six hours in the blistering summer heat. Fake crab lovingly drenched in mayo...She then finished it off for a snack. She brought new meaning to the term "cast iron stomach." I tend to know a lot of people who don't respect refrigeration.

124. To this day, a friend can't stand root beer barrel candies
because he was traveling in the back of a station wagon once, and his father, who was driving, broke wind at the precise moment he popped one of those candies in his mouth.



The stench was so foul, he tossed his cookies.

Yea, it's an association thing.

Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 06:30 PM by TreasonousBastard
a chili in it?

Billy Beer was so bad we sent it to the lab for analysis. It came back with a note saying they regretted our horse had diabetes.

Other than that, Bud, Coors and Miller aren't really beer, by my definition. And Heineken here is a faint shadow of the Heineken you get on tap in Amsterdam.

44. Milwaukee's Best : Heck Yes!
We used to buy that horror because it was (seriously) $2.50 for a 12-pak "back in the (proverbial) day".

It had to be cold near to frozen solid to drink at all. I guess that numbs the 'buds.

We also smoked loads of marlboro reds (aka "cowboy cigarettes") then so that hadda help.

It was only about a month past the 'best by...' date and it tasted like an old bar rag.
Now I always check to see what month is punched on the edge of the label.

But I agree, Coors Light is pretty bad. It's a ritual for Colorado guys to go up and take a piss in the stream that eventually becomes the water supply for Coors.

Coors is fine Belgian beer in comparison.

87. No Way! Lucky Lager was fantastic - can't get it any more
a 12 pack of bottles was like $6 in 2002 (they stopped production in 03 or 04) and I bought it every week. Not only was it great for the money, but a lot better than most beers you could get at the grocery store. The bottles were awesome too, and at 11oz "just one more" seemed just a bit easier.

45. With so many horrible beers it's hard to choose!
Schlitz is horrible shit. Coors Light is proof that you can sell anything to the public with a slick advertising campaign. However, I'll choose Stroh's Light as my all-time worst. It was actually carbonated, since apparently they couldn't get any natural fizz through fermentation. :puke:

136. Well, then, why are they bringing it back?
albeit, not in its original form...

http://starbulletin.com/2007/11/29/business/story05.htm...

Nearly 10 years after running dry, a beer called Primo is back....

After its last pour in 1998, the brew's name is being revived by Primo Brewing & Malting Co., a division of Woodridge, Ill.-based beer giant Pabst Brewing Co.

Primo, which will hit the taps of between 30 and 40 Oahu bars and restaurants during the second week of December, is made from a different recipe than the beer Stroh Brewery Co. made in the 1980s and 90s.

"It was a good beer, but I'm not sure if it was an award-winning beer," said Primo spokesman Kyle Wortham.


I'll bet you don't like poi, either. :P

I never drink anything by a major brewer (except Guinness), because it's never any good. Microbreweries, that's the way to go. Their beers have personality simply because they're not intended "for everybody".

But of the ones you listed, Schlitz is totally gaaak!

66. Miller Chill - start with a lousy, watered-down product with
absolutely no personality, add some lime flavoring, along with a little bit of salt for good measure! :puke:

Marketed so heavily this past summer, I felt compelled to try it - there's six bucks I'll never get back! How insidious is this brewing concept? Feeling hot and needing refreshment, you start drinking this shit, and the salt just makes you thirstier, and what exactly are you supposed to drink to quench that thirst if that's all you've got??

Yeah, Coors/Bud/Miller are shit. I agree and never drink them. But if given the choice between any of them and a PBR - no contest. I can swallow cheap mass produced American beers, if not enjoy them. But I can't even choke down an entire Pabst, even if I'm already drunk and my standards have lowered. WORST. BEER. EVER.

128. I used to drink PBR back in the 1960's
Because it was the cheapest beer that the bar near my college sold.

Fast forward about forty years, and bar opened here that served PBR on tap for one dollar a pint. After drinking various other mass produced beers over the years, the PBR seemed to have a robust beery flavor missing from my usual quaff. PBR is my beer of choice whenever I visit that bar!

God that stuff is awful. My friend said "hey we're at the Outback - have a Fosters".

Bud light is pretty bad but it goes down easy. I have a funny story once about it. I was very drunk one night and went through my friend's brother's refrigerator and was drinking the bud light without paying attention, and my reaction was "wow, man this beer tastes just like water! What is this stuff?".

Pabst was pretty bad too. I've heard Milwaukee's Best is really bad but I've never tried it.

I guess it's considered "piss water" kinda like Bud and Coors are here.

I seem to remember Fosters being better back in the 80's than it is now. Granted, my taste in beer evolved a lot since then, but it might also have something to do with changing American distributors, maybe? I think it's the same company that distributes Labatts, and I know that shit used to taste better than it does now.

159. There's a scene you'd appreciate in the Jerky Boys movie...
...they're in the corner dive bar in Queens and their arch nemesis from their school days, Brett Weir, condescendingly treats them to free beers. He walks to the table with three bottles of Rolling Rock. They pick them up and look at each other and shrug their shoulders like "What the hell, it's free" and drink them down. I took it as less than a ringing endorsement for Rolling Rock.

I've gone sober at parties (unheard of for me) rather than drink the stuff. I absolutely refuse to take even a sip of it. It makes me wretch.

143. Foster's export
Dunno what the stuff is like in Australia, if they even sell it there, but the stuff they sell in England isn't fit to flush yer turds away with.

163. Indeed.
Their beer is such crap that they actually used the tagline, "Schaefer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one."

154. I tried my hand at brewing a couple years ago..
I vote for it.

Mike's Dreadful Ale. I followed the guidelines, but it turned out rank.

I have tried other home brews from friends where they have supposedly thrown in any kind of ingredients, and they turn out well.

I may try again someday :)

164. Cold Spring beer.
I am not even sure if Cold Spring is still being brewed (and I use the term "brewed" very loosely here.)

Think skunky ass beer made out of ditch water.

165. Had to put "other" You forgot "Milwaukee's Best" aka 'Milwaukee's Beast'
The poison of choice amongst my friends back in the late 80's through mid '90s.

Me... i can't stand the taste of beer (even supposedly GOOD beer), so i'm sure while they were guzzling down their $6 case of "Beast", i was mixing some cheap rum with generic cola. *L*

166. Rolling Rock, how could you forget Rolling Rock?
I don't care if it's brewed here in PA, it's crappy beer that got aboost by a half-way decent marketing campaign.

167. Lowenbrau, Bud Lite, Bud Select.
There are many bad beers, but these three come immediately to mind, for different reasons.

I first tasted Lowenbrau back when I was visiting the 1964 World's Fair, here in New York. Fresh out of college, where I had consumed a great deal of beer indiscriminately, I went for a better class of beer at The Fair. I tried Lowenbrau and was completely unimpressed. Next, I tried Heinikens, which clearly showed how bad the Lowenbrau really was.

Bud Lite... this is just terrible stuff.

Bud Select. A couple of years ago, I was spending a lot of time in a bar in Key Largo, Florida. So I got to know some ladies and bought them a beer or two. Almost all of them asked for Bud Select... "That's my beer!" they proudly said. So I tried it too, and said to myself WTF is this about? Just another phony marketing scheme from your friends at AB, who sells more bad beer than anybody.

173. Ridley's Rumpus
That was the worst beer I've ever tasted. However, that brewery has since been closed down so I'm going to have to nominate something else. I tried a Japanese beer called Kirin the other week that was pretty rank so I think I'll nominate that!

And beyond that, you have your big corporate beers such as Stella Artois, Fosters, US Budweiser, Miller etc.

180. Ahh, Ridley's!
"If I'd wanted bits in my pint, I'd have ordered Ridley's" - me, trying to get a drunk friend to stop putting peanuts in my pint. Last I saw, before the brewery closed down, Ridley's was being used to flavour mustard - because it clearly wasn't worth drinking.

Edited on Wed Dec-19-07 01:27 AM by Thankfully_in_Britai
...is quite possibly the only good thing that Greene King have ever done for the brewing industry in recent years. The problems arise when they take over and muck about with good breweries such as Morland or Hardys and Hansons. Small wonder that we at CAMRA have developed something of a grudge against Greene King in recent years.

Still, if we are talking about bad British beer, then we have to mention Watney's, seeing as the mere mention of that stuff still causes howls of displeasure from anyone over the age of 45.

179. Red White & Blue, Tequiza
Red White & Blue was the cheapest nastiest stuff and was a staple of high school parties because it was so cheap. People only drank it to get wasted. Tequiza was this beer flavored with Blue Agave. I tried it once and got a migrane.
