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 have often driven by the big rotating sign in downtown Milwaukee that has the big blue ribbon on it, and have wondered how this beer tastes. Now I know, and it is pretty crappy. But for the price, it cannot be beat, and it is a great alternative to that other Milwaukee beer.

It may not rate high but when compared to other cheap beers Pabst takes the Blue Ribbon.

I don't know where this beer got a blue ribbon, but those people were on crack. This stuff is water and...well there is nothing else to say.

Bitter, bitter, and more bitter. My Wisconsonite friend swears by the stuff. So cheap, yet so bad. My stomach and GI tract did not appreciate this, suprisingly, I can take live yeast culture but not PBR.

Better than malt likka, worse than Busch. Tart, clingy aftertaste. Goes to show you that you can make beer out of only sugar, rice, cornstarch and yeast.

Another of the old stand-by college party beers.. but then this was one that I usually wasn't too disappointed in.

Light in appearance as well as taste. Weak on the hops and heavy on the yeast. Weak, fizzy head. Taste is rather bland and salty. Overall not that great, but damn it's cheap and it goes farily well with pizza.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Very good for an inexpensive beer. Quality uniform from batch to batch as far as I can tell. Color darker than others. Good head and head retention, lace on the side of glass. No cloud or other problems. Aroma moderately strong, mainly roast malt. Slightly resinous hop bouquet. Taste much better than AB beers, malt and hops reasonably strong. No floral or vegetable overtones. Not too sweet. Nice tingle on the tongue and pleasant lasting finish. Good with food. A real bargain and a growing trend for us mountain freaks.
