Anyone ever get a trusted beer (Sierra Nevada), that is undrinkable?
I just ended up throwing 3 beers down the drain, because they were nasty.
One, maybe, but three? I'm wondering if they changed the formula. sick

I've run across that, I just usually attribute it to some shipping or storage screwup. Probably got too hot or was refrigerated then it got warm again.

Since Sierra Nevada makes different types of beers, maybe you got some mixed in your 6 pack?

Was it the type or what?

Oh, and there is such a thing as sour beer

Pale Ale (the usual).
I just chucked the whole thing.
Life's too short, etc. etc.

You need to brew your own beer, then you won't be disappointed. wink

Ditto here. It rides around on a truck... gets warm.. then refrigerated again. The store near me kept getting Corona like that... it was skunk beer. Smelled nasty on opening.
