On our latest podcast, Don and I discussed beers and whiskeys that are well regarded, but we can’t stand. My beers included Duchesse De Buorgogne, a Flemish red ale that it just waaaay too sweet for my tastes. Other people rave about this beer and I just cannot understand what all the hubub is about. Bell’s Oberon is another beer I’ve heard a lot about and finally got to try this week. I found it tremendously average and think it’s a bit overrated.
This points to one of the great thing about craft beer – tastes vary and all that really matters is what you the drinker enjoys. There is no “right” and “wrong,” there’s only “like” and “loathe.”
Don and I had fun going negative on the podcast and burning a couple of bridges as we went, and now it’s your turn. Hit the comments below and let us know which popular beers just rub you the wrong way based upon your personal tastes. After all, you can’t please everybody, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bitch about it!
