I first heard about Original C Cave Creek Chili Beer online in the forum posts at beeradvocate.com with the topic being "Beer You Hate the Most". It is also one of the worst ranking beers on the website as well. At this point I was so intrigued how so many could despise this beer, I vowed if I ever came across it, I would try it.
This past weekend after having a couple other drinks to get my courage up, I cracked open the bottle and began preparing myself for the tasting. Luckily, my wife and a friend were around to try it as well. I poured about half of it in a tulip glass and my nostrils were already burning with the scent of chilies before I even got close to it.
In a last ditch effort to find something positive about the beer, I sampled the chili inside of it, but was greeted by a soggy spicy mess. About 75% of this beer was poured down the drain, but I felt like drinking even that much was a compliment to this novelty of a beer.
If you want to try something drastically bizarre in the beer world, this may be for you. If you want it be drinkable as well, I'm afraid your out of luck with this brew. Better luck next time.
