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.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 Good stuff. Timeless classic, very inexpensive. A very smooth drinking beer. According to my dad 'Its called Pabst 'Blue Ribbon' because it won the award for best beer in the world at a certain point in time'. True story. I forgot to mention I'm from a white trash neighborhood so this is key to my survival. Anyone who thinks that a bullshit foreign, candy ass specialty beer is better than PBR is a daisy who cant handle the taste of a real man's beer.

PBR is not bad stuff. It is similar to some other mass-produced American junk, but it has a better flavor. Nothing complex. Just a refreshing taste. It is average. I did like the 24 oz. can that I got at the bar. I could stand and drink and B.S. with friends for a long time before the can was empty :)

Metalliic flavor. Watered down. Better than Bud, or Beast.

Can be found in most "dirt farmer" small town bars or "taverns" as they like to be called. More often than not, it will be found mixed with tomato juice. "Set me up with a Red Eye Helen" is also a pretty common saying when PBR is being poured. Not my beer of choice, but it will get you lit up in a pinch. See you at Smitty’s in Tabor Iowa.

I’m going to rate this beer in context to Schlitz, mainly because they are similiar beers and I really have trouble finding stuff to rate about these kinds of beers because they are so simple it’s hard to describe them. While I found the Schlitz to possess both more hop flavors (grassy)than any other common macro I can think of, the PBR was much less bitter. The Schlitz was also metallic tasting (the grassy hops meshing with another flavor perhaps?) and the PBR lacked this. The PBR is a bit sweeter than the Schlitz, but still remains crisp. It doesn’t even become undrinkable cold. Too bad typical beer swillers think this beer is below them. It really is a good cheap beer. That being said, the only times I’ll be likely to buy this is for times when I’m not looking to really enjoy the beer, but looking for something that goes down easily and provides some social lubrication.
