** And USA prison wine can be tame compared to other prison drinks, with even more relaxed ingredient standards. Chilean "Pájaro Verde" may include any of the above, but is truly infamous for including things like paint thinner or ''actual paint''. It's just as deadly as it sounds.

** When President Obama met Prime Minister David Cameron for a casual beer (in front of eighty million cameras) each brought a favourite beer from their own home country. Despite Cameron's protests that the flavour of the (very cultured) [[http://www.wychwood.co.uk Hobgoblin Beer]] from the Wychwood Brewery in his constituency of Oxfordshire that he brought for Obama to try would be ruined by chilling it to ice cold, Obama absolutely insisted on putting it in the fridge. You would think Obama would trust him, or at least, the guidelines on the bottle, enough to try a beer as intended. Apparently not. See a picture of the event [[http://www.eurobrews.com/images/hobgoblin/World%20Leaders%20Hobgoblin.jpg here.]][[note]]For those wondering, the yellow-labelled beer Cameron is holding on the left is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goose_Island_Brewery Goose Island Brewery's 312 Urban Wheat Ale,]] produced in Obama's adoptive hometown of Chicago.[[/note]] Incidentally, Hobgoblin is well known in England for its [[http://birra.ru/uup/images/news/577/hobgoblin-6.jpg humorously scathing criticism]] of people who drink cheap [[ATankardOfMooseUrine tasteless lager]], something [[MagnificentBastard Cameron would have been very aware of]].

* When European colonists attempted to make wine out of native New World grapes, they didn't much care for the result. They settled on "foxy" as a description of the taste, for some reason.

** North Korean beer is in fact actually ''good''. While not hopped to the sometimes frankly ridiculous standards of craft beer lovers, it offers a surprising diversity of styles and complexity of flavors. It also helps that unlike his father, who was a brandy connoisseur, Kim Jong Un is a beer drinker and keeps the matter under control.

* India pale ale (IPA) is definitely a LoveItOrHateIt style of beer due to being heavily hopped (resulting in the style being bitter beyond belief), and that's not even getting into [[FanHater the hate some people have for IPA]] ''[[{{Hipster}} drinkers]]''. However, what both aficionados and detractors can agree on is when one is bad, it's awful. Due to the labor-intensive and difficult process of brewing an IPA to have the right balance of hop and malt flavors, it's very easy to screw up. And because the IPA is such a popular style, there are always breweries looking [[FollowTheLeader to cash in on a trend]] with poorly-made beer slapped with the "microbrew" tag and sold at an obscene markup from what it actually took to produce. Thus, you get beers like Pig Minds Brewing Company's Prunus the Bitter, which has been described as tasting of rotten peaches and dish soap, and Indian Wells' Amnesia, which has an alcohol taste so pungent it successfully masks ''four different kinds of hops''. Generally speaking, anything produced by Brewdog can be trusted to not have the overwhelming aftertaste associated with IPAs.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV and V]]'' have a parody of shitty, cheap mass-market beer in the form of Pißwasser [[note]]German for "piss-water"[[/note]]. In-game ads play up the redneck stereotypes associated with chugging such brews in quantity.

** Quests available only during certain holiday events require you to bring a specified drink from an inn to a particular NPC. Some of them ''want'' beverages that are reputedly quite nasty (either from a "Completionist" mindset on their part, because they've heard about it and want to see for themselves if it's as bad as everyone says, or because it's terrible but it reminds them of home). A different set of similar quests has you bringing them something other than what they requested as a prank.
This list shows the last 10 events of 356. Show all.
