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.

First beer I drank with my Grandpa. Bitter, bitter, bitter. PBR tastes better today than it did then.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 You know, we used to get a case of natty for our band practices in Dougherty Hall. But then I picked up a case of good old PBR one time and it was a much needed change. Sure you pay a little more for PBR, but anything to get that nasty natty taste out of your mouth, right? Straw colored, white fluff head that can be pretty big but soon dissipates. Taste some malts through the filtered water. Lingering taste of white bready malt and alcohol notes.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2007 Wow this is cheap beer. It stacks up with the other mass produced crap, but only cheaper. Its making a comeback in my area. Original rating: 07/25/2003 RE-rate 08/16/07: I found a redeeming quality for this stuff when drinking some at a friends "cheap beer night". The bottle caps can be saved to create a deck of cards as they have the suits and numbers on the bottom. Not sure the reason for this but I guess if you are too poor to buy a deck of cards this is what you drink.

Pretty bad, yet affordably priced beer. If you're on a budget go for Stroh's or Schiltz Bull instead, it's way better though apparently for some reason pabst is now "hip". Pabst tastes too much like a light beer, Coors Lite in particular. At least it's not Milwaukee's Best Lite, Miller High Life, or Schlitz Ice though. Those are truly un-swillable beers. This one goes down easy - there's just not much taste to it.

It ain't handsome. It ain't ambitious. But when you're low on funds, it's the best you can get.

Pretty decent. Very mild, almost like a light beer. Tasty, but watery. Nice for a change, but doubt it is anyone's all-time favorite.

Beer is light in the yeast, malt, and hops. This actually tastes like water. But oh well..

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 I rate this beer higher based on value. Better than most swill from BMC, it is overly carbonated and warm it is just horrid. But, hey, it’s cheaper than budmillercoors and I DO get a tad of malt on the finish. There are not many other flavors there and the adjunct taste is reasonably attenuated.
