Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.


Established in Milwaukee in 1844, this is the original Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Nature’s choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America’s Best in 1893.

I don't like this beer. Nothing to offer in flavor. I'd rather drink water than this.

this isnt good beer. this is barely drinkable shit that comes at a great price and has a cache that transcends "taste" this is a ethical beer choice. when you show up in a crew of peeps that might not seem that friendly, and you pull out a 12 pack of pabst tall boys, you will make friends with stranger. you whip out some super tasty microbrewed mega stout...you may have made the right taste critically, remember that when you have a bloody nose and people are laughing at you. not a tasters choice, but will prevent you from getting your ass kicked at several portland punk rawk house parties.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 Pabst. A nice strong feeling beer. Kind of hard to define wafty taste that comes of it, but a memorable one. The tap handle at the bar even looked classy too. A burnt orange/golden color, good fidelity of beverage. Tastes a bit like cereal, but a mean serious cereal. Not abrasive to the tounge at all. Probably best when very cold. Edit: Whew, I had to knock this rating down a few points after the horrible hangover it gave me the next morning. Aiya.

No question that this is the worst beer I have ever had. I would even rather drink milwakee or natty.

The basic party beer. Essentially flavorless. Good to bring out after you've knocked off a bunch of better beers and are getting to the point where you can't tell the difference anymore. A strictly get-drunk brew.

Metallic in aroma, perhaps some 'carefully selected' corn in the mix. nasty.

Poured draft "lighter than Miller Lite" in a frosty pint glass a piss gold color with no head. Very mild corn aroma with a taste of adjuncts, metal, and sweet corn water. This really was not that great, and made me want to puke.

PBR. Gee...I was at a concert and had one of these - does that count? I had already had several other more quality beers priorly but I could still tell the palate on this one was quite bad and I realised why my friend had bought it for me after we had other beers: it's not really good. Gee...

Pabst is sickeningly drinkable. Its easy to quickly guzzle 3 or 4 cans before you realize that you're drinking one of the worst beers around. A classic for college keg parties, Pabst Blue Ribbon doesn't taste very good, doesn't go well with anything, is frighteningly cheap, and well, is an American standard. I like it for what it is.

A tall can for $.99, how could I resist? Well, it's better than Bud, that's the nicest thing I can say!
