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.

Better than Bud. Same category. Worse than 95% of whats out there.

A lot like Bud, but a smidge better. The other comments from people are amusing. Some people seem really attached to this brew, for some reason.

This is really realy gross. I really really didnít like this. Why oh why do people consume this on a regular basis? I just like to make fun of it.

Re-rate 10/15/02: Initially gave this a 3.5. What the hell was I thinking? Must be the emotional connection--this used to be my old manís beer of choice. For schwag, it ainít so bad, but, hell, itís still schwag.

The only thing I have ever had that was worse than PBR was this time i spiked a PBR with cheap vodka. Atleast that got the job done really quick.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 10, 2002
Clear yellowish. Fizzy white edge head. Minimal carbonation. Zippo aroma, maybe a touch of rice. Chemical free. Briskly crisp. Candy like sweetness. Clean and fairly adjunct free tasting. Medium light body. Not much malt depth but a touch of toasted hay. Finishes drier, a hair bland and somewhat sticky on the palate. A decent brew, if it had any aroma. Something I would drink, free or not.

What can you not like about PBR. Nice price, easy drinking, and a quick induced buzz. This is "lawnmower beer" if any beer can be classified as so.

My wife says it reminds her of high school, thatís not necessarily good. Best of the cheap, keep cold, hardly taste, get drunk, drink a lot, all the time beers.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Itís not the worldís best beer by any stretch of the imagination, but it has its place. This beer is great at summer barbecues, while eating catfish and coleslaw, and with a bacon cheeseburger and fries at the local greasy spoon. Thereís something to be said for beers that are unchallenging, very smooth, and inherently drinkable. Iíll never turn down a PBR.
