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 was unimpressed by this beer. It's certainly more satisfying than Budweiser and the like, but save your money for some Sam Adams. You'll thank yourself for it.

F*** this S***! Heineken Lager! Except that is little better. PBR is the typical Am. St. light gold--perhaps a little darker, with a litter nicer head than usual. I've always wondered what people meant by the cooked vegetable smell; I guess like being "5'd" you just will know it when it happens. Man, I just want to put some salt and pepper on this and eat it with some pot roast. It's a bit sour and lacks both hop and malt flavors, although it does have this interesting flavor that is like the smell when the motor is burning on your vacuum cleaner. Swillable, but there are better cheap beers.

I heard Pabst was making a bit of a comeback so I bought a six pack of longnecks and chilled them. I must say that Pabst is once again an excellent example of the American standard style. It's miles better than Budweiser or Miller and it has a nice balanced flavor. I'd definitely keep some around as a summertime lawnmowing beer. PBR is better now than it has tasted in years. I always thought the old Milwaukee-brewed PBR was much better than the version we used to get out of the Pearl plant in San Antonio but today's PBR is a nice, reasonably priced beer.

Not so good. Why, of all the acceptable cheap macrobrews out there, is this the one that the hipsters have latched on to. Blatz, Old Style, and High Life are way better.

Not too bad for a macro-brew. If you don't mind a cheap beer this is one to try. My grandfather is very cheap and I can see why this was always in his fridge. I can buy this stuff warm for 3.99 a 12 pack at the local pharmacy. How can you really argue with that.

Pabst is a real beer drinkers beer. This is the kind of beer that you rip down with your buddies while watching the Sox game on NESN. Great for getting hammered off of with a solid 5% alcohol by volume content. The flavor of this beer is also far superior to similar overpriced beers such as bud, coors, and some miller products. This is truely a time-honored hero of beers.

When poured, this beer had a small white head that consisted of small bubbles that quickly diminished. There was good lacing with this brew and the body was clear and yellow in hue. It had a light malty aroma to it and it was bitter tasting from start to finish. This beer definitely lacks character as there is nothing special that I have to say about it.
