Oh I love coffee that's what I like about them but in general I just can't drink them. I try them as little samples but I cannot drink more then 4 ounces if them. The macho comment is true I ran into a buddy from high school at a bar and I told him that I homebrew and he said that you can't say you know beer I you don't like guineas then he told me the best beer is bud light so he made himself out to be a meat head. It's like those dudes he want to look sophisticated and drink heinekin lol

I'll add Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat, the Imperial Wit (which was syrupy and sweet), and their summer wheat that came in their mix 6 pack. 

I also won't bother with anything in a green bottle (Heineken/Stella) or clear, as well.  Heineken in a can, though, rocks.

Spaten Oktoberfest comes in a green bottle, and it is delicious if you buy the sealed 12 packs.  I've never had a skunked one.

I think most macho beer geeks drink Imperal IPAs now, since beer geeks know that Guinness is actually a "light" beer in alcohol and body.   ;)

Well at least the drive from Denver will be pretty. That stretch of I-70 has to be the most scenic piece of Interstate system.
It is beautiful in a traditional way (certainly better than going from Denver the OTHER way on I70!  :D), although keep going into Utah and hang south and things get pretty amazing there too! 

Yes amazing drive, nice that you can see the mountains of denver-grand junction immediately followed by the desert of grand junction-moab.  Let me know when you're ready to make a special trip for a "never again" beer; actually if you wanted you could have all 6 or so beers that they make and go for six "never again" beers.

I will second the Never Again at Rockslide in WColorado.  Garbage.  Shame, bc they have a cool location.

Great location.  The owners are truly thick headed and stubborn.  At this point I think a campaign should be launched to make them into a tourist hot spot.  Come have one of the worst brews made in the US, "wash" it down with mediocre cafeteria style food served as if it were California cuisine.

Gotta disagree..there ARE some bad beers out there.  Not just no to my taste, but truly poorly made.

It's not the beers fault the brewer is a idiot lol. I guess that is true but no madder how bad it is there is still a lot of effort put into making it.

Again, I'd have to disagree (regrettably) in some cases.

You can't blame it on the ingredients, in most cases. It all boils down to the brewer. He's in charge of what goes in and how it's prepared.

To me, for a beer to be a "never again", I'd have to be in a bar with it on tap, and order wine instead.... There are not very many of those.

I have to second (or third or fourth) the Sam Adams triple bock It wasn't BAD perse but strage and soy saucy/maple syrupy course the one I had was 6 years old so who's to say what it was like a little fresher.

Well, when it came out, everybody was saying that it just needed some age to get rid of that flavor....;)

I guess that explains why I found a 6 year old bottle in a liqour store in boston.  ;D

I have a bottle or two from 1994/95.  Maybe it's time to see if they're better now.

I paid nearly $20 for a bottle in 94. Awful. What does it cost now?

 :D

The last time I went there (as in never again),
it was with my homebrewing brother.

The ultracool hipster California cuisine waiter says "whaddya have"
My brothers mulls a second and says "I'll try your Cream Ale"
Ultracool hipster California cuisine waiter says, "BMC drinker aye?" ::)

Yep, not only the attitude and service, but the beers all stink.
Never Again.
