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.

Draught: come on, Big Buck Hunt, Red buys you a beer and your not happy? This smooth beverage will wash away the rough edges of a long week, easy your troubles after a skirmish with a hog, and wish any number of people a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Cheers, everyone. . . and may I never have to drink this before eating White Castle burgers at 4 am again. . .

Its pretty typical for a really cheap lager...nothing special to note. I have an aversion to this typical beer because in every college town its the cheapest at EVERY bar...all the girls at my college fear PBR breath, apparently it shows not only a complete lack of taste in beer, but is also related closely to irritating drunk colege frat losers.

What I remember most about Pabst Blue Ribbon is the time that a local nut went scuba diving for kegs from an overturned Pabst truck in the Clarion River here in PA. We were pretty young and gave him $20 for a keg. Sweet and normal lager. Really sweet. That's about it.

On draught in a bar next to the Moore Hotel, Seattle. I must admit I was inspired to try this by Dennis Hopper (as alluded to below), and it was better than expected. OK it hardly has a taste, but there is some lemon and dryness there, and it looks immaculately light and yellow. Fizzy, cheap and unpretensious.

Perfect if you are a poor college kid. Tastes kinda like Bud Light, although some might disagree.

I have to admit that I prefer this to macroswill otherwise known as "Budweiser" or "Miller." This went down well tonight, considering Miami's (OH) resounding victory over Bowling Green for the MAC Championship. Golden-bodied, with a sour socks aroma. Has some flavor (albeit mostly adjunct) and still goes down smooth. A good cheap bar beer for the masses.

yeah, i drank it, belched and it was cool. cheap and not that bad. pale, bland, some funkyness etc. lacing stuck a little more than expected, nice to see.

Glad to see this one back in some bars. A good alternative to other macro beers out there. A litter better then Miller or Bud
