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.

In my younger days, read college, this was one of my beer of choice. Now that I am aware of all of the alternates, and can afford a little better brew, it doesn't make it off the store shelf.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 The classic beer to down with your home boys. The flavor isn't so great but it's not designed to be exotic, it's designed for Joe six pack to drink during a football game. Nostalgia aside, it's one of the less disgusting American mass market brews.

#1000! P-B-FUCKING-R! This is one of those bad beers that somehow slipped under the radar all this time. I was in Lake Tahoe and fast approaching the milestone. I went to Dart Discount Liquors and picked up a few brews and the 24 oz can of PBR was calling, it was begging to be the one. So, it was....the beer is bad, like carbonated corn syrup.....nothing good to say about the beer, but being able to drink it in Tahoe with the bro while smoking victory cigars was special. There are a few people I need to thank who helped me reach this ridiculous moment in my life....in no particular order....Chaz, Nate, Legion242, joet, my girlfriend, beerlimey, austinpowers, Brenda, Matta, Mom....all of these people, and some others I cant think of right now, in some way, shape, or form hooked me up with beer.....hmmm....now what?

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [can] A pale golden color with very little head. Good carbonation. Very slight malty flavor. Very watery. Goes down easy.

Aroma: industrial east with sweet malt. Rather unpleasant mix. Light in body, with some thin malt base. Hard to belive that they use real (finest grain). Oh well. Aftertaste of mineral water, thin. Short lived. Slightly salty. Lower quality than most mass produced beer available on market.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Pabst, king of the swill! I believe Pabst has enough character to lift up and over all of the other tasteless American Standards. It really does not taste like beer; it sort of reminds me of sweetened sake that has been carbonated.

Okay, I gave it a shot, and, believe it or not, this was tasted blind (no label, just in the glass) Golden clear-ish slightly carbonated thin to no white head. No lacing on glass. The nose was not present some (wheats) where present but it could have been residue from an earlier beer. The taste was bland and watery, slightly salty. Thin bodied

After everything I have read about this beer I finally took the opportunity to try it. It's certainly not much to rave about but it is probably the easiest drinking inexpensive ($1.29 for 24oz) macro brew I've tasted.

It really doesn't offer much in any of the categories, but at the same time is an entirely drinkable domestic when you're on a light budget.
