While I wont disagree that RWB is bad, the worst beer i ever had was Iron City Light. I literally could not finish one and threw out the rest of the six pack. I know I know thats sacrilegious but i did.
Where does Milwaukee's Best land on this scale?
The Beast is not bad after the first six or seven. And The Beast was the first to invent the SUITCASE if my memory is correct. Another honorable mention on my bad list include Mickeys Big Mouth. http://collegetimes.us/10-worst-beers-you-should-avoid-in-college/
I remember a Georgetown bar where hipsters consumed Iron City at $5 or $6 a pop -- ironic indeed...
Anonymous Commenters,Thanks for your thoughts concerning cheap beer. Before I go any further, I have to explain why I singled out Red, White and Blue beer as The Worst Beer Known to Man. I came across that can one day and it brought back foggy, ugly memories from college. What exactly did Red, White and Blue (for some reason, it was never shortened or given a nickname) taste like? Now, I think PBR isn't bad but it does have a chemical 'finish.' Red, White and Blue was NOTHING but that PBR aftertaste from start to finish. If you traveled to Bayonne NJ and licked the first the 50 gallon drum that you came across, it probably would taste like Red, White and Blue. The rubber taste of a funnel tube actually improved the taste if that helps at all.Beyond that, I'm sad to say that I'm not in a good position to address your beer questions because I really haven't consumed many 'bad' beers since my St. Elmo's Fire days in Washington back in the 80's so I don't have much to offer regarding the merits of Mickey's Big Mouth or 'The Beast' (Milwaukee's Best). However, I've given your question about Iron City Light some thought. I'm very reluctant to disrespect Iron City Light for a few reasons. Like Pottsville's Yuengling or Latrobe's Rolling Rock, Iron City is a PA heritage brand that is full of Pittsburgh history and I love that (Rolling Rock, on second thought, is owned by Anheuser-Busch and is open season- it's overrated) Second, I haven't tasted it recently because, in Raleigh anyway, Iron City is expensive! It's priced like a micro-brew and I'll choose Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA every time for that kind of money. Lastly, I have to like it because I have an awesome bright yellow Pittsburgh Pinguins/ Iron City Light promotional cap that I don't want to give up.

I'll admit that I do enjoy Schlitz but it is neither bad nor (unfortunately) cheap anymore.http://trailertrad.blogspot.com/2010/09/what-made-milwaukee-famous-beer-band.html
Where can I purchase this generic swill?
What kind of cheap beer did Emilio Estevez drink?
Since Emilio Estevez is of Hispanic heritage, he may drink Tecate or Carta Blanca. -Wait, there's a little problem with that theory.How about this. Since he could be broke, his Brother Charlie probably buys the rounds. Boom Winning!
I think I read where Judd Nelson drinks Red White and Blue...
This post makes me think that the blog operator must have puked some Red White and Blue on a college friend. Doesn't he know that madras shirts and pants are natural camouflage for beer puke?
Beer not bad. Beer good. Me like beer
Disliking beer borders on the communist craze that is destroying the country: God save the USA and our beer
Anon. 8:42,Thanks for the great tip! You're right that a busy pattern like madras will hide vomit stains better than, say, black-tie evening clothes for example.Anon. 12:44,Your mastery of grammar makes me think that you've got what it takes to be a foreign exchange trader.Mr. Babcock Letheridge,I concurr with your sentiments, Sir. But just because there are bad apples in a basket doesn't mean that we should throw the baby out with the bath water. Frosty cold Schlitz all around!
