That is odd, not because of the oddness of that ingredient, but because that ingredient doesn't really taste like much on its own. Any time I've eaten them, they've been grilled with plenty of dipping sauce, or a BBQ sauce applied while cooking. Can't see what adding them would add to a beer?

No, they are brewing styles you don't like. I dislike sours overall....but that doesn't make them all bad.

I love IPAs.... my daughter prefers whitbeers....doesn't make my choice better or worse than hers.

And the great thing is....this may be shocking news to you......but breweries can make more than one style of beer!! It's such a radical notion that if I don't like one offering of a brewery I can try a style I like better.

Anyone remember Bootie Light???

Could find it back in college from 2004-2007 and like $2.99 a 6 pack. Absolute garbage.

Couldn't have said it better. I don't like overly hoppy beers. The only beer I've poured out in the past 4-5 years was Whitewater IPA from Sam Adams. However, Boston Beer Company makes over 60 types of beer, and I like more of them than I dislike.

I think the all time worst beer I've ever had was Corona, or maybe Strohs many years ago. Just gross. I'm a Sam Adams, Bass Ale, Guinness guy, and cant stand any of the watered down, corn and rice adjunct filled beers like Bud, Coors, Miller, etc. I'm also from RI, and the new Narragansett they have out now is pretty bad too. Tastes like someone took a half glass of real beer and filled it back up with water. Nasty!

IPAs like drinking acorns. I don't know why, everybody pretends to enjoy that garbage.

All Heineken tastes skunky to me. I kept thinking I was getting bad batches but after trying if for the third time, I realized it just tastes like ****.

Coors light
Heineken
Budweiser

I know these are popular brands but they taste awful to me.

^^ This

I tend to like Sam Adams, Anderson Valley... I've also found that I like the Gose style of beer.

When someone mentions Bud/Corona/Coors/Miller...

In Canada there's a restaurant/pub chain, a small one, called The 3 Brewers (Les 3 Brasseurs in Quebec) with their own craft brews. I tried the blonde, and it had very little flavour, even for a pale ale. Smooth yet watery. Only fit for an extremely hot day when you'll drink anything cold.
