According to Ratebeer.com, the worst beer in the world is Olde English 800 3.2 (the 3.2% ABW version). Can’t argue with that, although suckiness is pretty much par for the course when it comes to malt liquor. It’s the kind of beer you pop open inside a paper bag on a park bench when you are completely broke, miserable and just want to get tore up.
I don’t have a problem with much of what’s on the rest of the top 50 list either—although I defy you do go out and buy the most popular beers from Coors, Bud, Miller and the like and tell me you notice a difference. The mainstream, commercial beers that everyone swears by are all pretty much equally crappy. The popularity of these beers is more a function of good marketing than it is quality.
