** Same with the beer in the Baltic states, which manages to be [[UpToEleven even worse by a wide margin]]. (NOTE: These rules generally apply only to the standard pale lagers in Russia and the Baltic. They do not usually apply to "Baltic porter", a darker beer that--despite being a lager and thus technically not a porter--does some justice to the English style that inspired it. They absolutely do ''not'' apply to "Russian Imperial Stout," a style of ale historically brewed in England for export to the [[RussiansWithRifles Imperial Russian Army]] starting in the days of UsefulNotes/CatherineTheGreat and today a favorite for American microbreweries looking for a high-gravity dark beer.)

*** Also, any kind of high-gravity lager or "malt liquor." If you see a student drinking 40s of malt liquor (super-strength super-crappy beer, sold cheap and usually associated with the 'hood), you know that he/she is on a "[[RamenAsDehydratedNoodles ramen-noodle-every-night budget]]." Famous varieties include Olde English 800, Steel Reserve (frequently referred to as "211"), Colt 45, Mickey's, St. Ides, Hurricane, King Cobra, and Big Bear.

* During the American prohibition era, many bars were forced to buy home-brewed beer of dubious quality. While plenty of speakeasies got good home-brews, a lot of crummier places had to sell cheap, poorly-made and terrible-tasting liquor. Being as these beers had been known to cause blindness, bad taste might be the best you could hope for.

* In ''[[Literature/GentlemanBastard The Republic Of Thieves]]'', Locke and Jean are settling down to do some scheming and specifically ask for some awful red wine, "plonk with sand in it", most likely to keep them from getting too drunk.

* Ever had prison wine? [[http://www.thesneeze.com/mt-archives/000373.php Steve of Steve, Don't Eat It! has]]. It's not so much "wine" as it is poor man's moonshine. Let that sink in. It may be made in a hidden plastic bag ''or an actual toilet'' with, unless you're very lucky, moldy bread for the yeast. The results vary enormously, of course; Steve's test run resulted in one that was "wine... like... ish" and another that was "sour, watery alcohol" with a foul smell. Remember, ''in Hell, this is all you get!''

** Some cheap Spanish red wines (''vino tinto'') can be really icky. A popular method to render them potable is to prepare ''kalimotxo'' out of them: a mixture of red wine and cola drink in 1:1 ratio. The phosphorous acid in cola drinks will neutralize any bitter substances to great extent. Kalimotxo is a popular drink on ''botellons'', grand impromptu booze-ups by the Spanish youth. Kalimotxo is also known as ''Diesel'', ''Cubalitro'' and ''Rioja Libre''.

** Another use for Spanish ''tinto'' is ''tinto de verano''--"summer red", the most popular drink in the Spanish summertime. It consists of a 1:1 ratio of red wine and a lightly lemon-lime-flavored soft drink called ''gaseosa'' (a 50/50 mix of 7-Up and club soda approximates a ''gaseosa'', so non-Spaniards can think of it as 2 parts wine, one part 7-Up, and one part soda water). The wine for ''tinto de verano'' needs to be ''slightly'' better than that for the kalimotxo, since the phosphoric acid isn't there, but not by much.

** Finnish word for "moonshine" (illicit liquor), ''pontikka'' derives itself from the French province of Pontacq. The province is not known of quality wines.

* There's the joke about beer company owners having a get-together, each ordering their own beer, and the last one, who considers them all horse piss, orders a fresh, stating "since no one's having beer..."

* In ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' there is a beverage called Moonlight Mead, which actually isn't mead because it is made from mushrooms and not honey. When you drink it, the game tells you "It tastes like something just died in your mouth". The only bar that serves this drink is in a town where almost everyone is a werewolf, possibly because werewolves like the taste of something dying in their mouths.

* In a ''TheTwoRonnies'' sketch in which Ronnie Barker plays the President of the Institute of Scottish Tourism ("In other words, I'm PIST"), he warns tourists that identifying yourself as English in Scottish bars will usually result in being served with a disgusting concoction made from distilled ptarmigan (Which begins with a p, and so would you if you were being distilled), which is unfortunately identical to the Scottish malt whiskey he has in this glass here... ''(drinks, spits=)'' ...which is even more revolting.
