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. Natureís choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as Americaís Best in 1893.

The Blue Ribbon is tough to choke down. Iíd chase this beer with a shot of vodka.

Of course have had Pabst before, but not with a discerning eye. And, following a Grain Belt Premium, which I feel is a notch better in the same category, the Blue Ribbon had its work cut out. Fresh, crisp and clean both in nose and in palate. Decently thick, small-bubble head. Not as complex as Grain Belt Premium, but thatís like saying Harry Dunne is not as complex as Lloyd Christmas. Anyway, itís a hell of a lot better than Bud, I can tell you that.

Had a pint of this the other day at the local watering hole. YUUUKK. Dirty tap? Bad keg? I dunno, but awfull. Will try again maybe somewhere else or a can. Rerate: Tried on tap at a different place. Didnít seem nearly bad as the time previous, but still has some funky aftertaste I didnít care for.

Oh man. The PBR. This beer looks like pee! A quintessential classic. Made for front porches, bondo camaros, and cut off flannel shirts. I have to pay homage to the true king of working class beer. Plus, it makes you look really really cool to be drinking the blue ribbon. I look for this specifically when itís time to work on the car or do any sort of house/yard work whatsoever. It looks really awesome surrounded by greasy wrenches and oil.

Pabst is a refreshing beer with an even better looking color. This is not one to pass up for the price.

I once said that any beer 5% ABV or greater was O.K., I must renege with this one. No one should drink diesel fuel.
