The Worst Beer in the World

I'm no connoisseur, but when it comes to drinking beer I usually like to maintain a decent standard. This almost always eliminates beverages sold in 30-packs of cans, sold individually in bottles of 32oz or more, and virtually all malt liquor. In fact, I tend to avoid any variety of canned beer altogether.

This past weekend, however, I was thinking of economy over quality and I succumbed to the evils of "that section" of the beer aisle and dropped about $14 on a 30-rack of Old Style. I had been jonesing for a PBR, but sadly the Copps on Park St. doesn't carry beers that nice. So Old Style it was. And after having already downed a few bottles of imports and micros, it wasn't as terrible as it could have been. But it was still pretty bad and it's not something I'm likely to do again in the near future.

Now let's talk about Danny. Danny likes decent beers (I've seen him drink them!), but when the order of the night is home-based boozing and general hangouttery (and there isn't enough in the house already to keep all parties adequately imbibed) he inevitably wanders to "that section" of the grocery store to pick up a 6-pack of 16-oz cans of the Worst Beer in the World.

Nope, it's not Natty (Ice, Light, etc), or Keystone (all varieties), Miller, Busch, Blatz (up north) or any of the preferred beers of the guys whose favorite season isn't summer, but rather "cargo shorts and flip-flops time". It's not Lonestar, or Schlitz (which holds the same special spot in my heart that Carlo Rossi does, but I'll likely not ever drink either of them again), or even fucking Milwaukee's Best (false advertising!)!

It's Olde English. And according to ratebeer.com (which is an awesome site), Olde English is the absolute worst beer in the world. It's even ranked below every type of non-alcoholic and low-alcohol beer.

Danny, please start drinking better beer. http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/TheWorstBeers.asp
