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.

PBR is not anything I will ever drink again. It was however the first I ever drank.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2006 If you gave me a choice of a Michalob Ultra or a Pabst it’s Pabst by a mile. You get what you pay for. A blue collar retro beer. Nothing fancy just a drinkable beer at a good price.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Water, heavily carbonated beer. Not as bad/offensive as some other mass produced american beers. Dennis Hopper loved it in Blue Velvet so I'll give a bonus point to it's overall rating

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2003 This is by far my favorite american standard beer. It has a great taste, good aroma, and is cheap to boot. This is the beer for almost any occasion. Throw it in a bucket of ice and have a good time! Hey, it also won a blue ribbon!.... like a 100 years ago.

Surprisingly slightly tasty for american standard. Has a bad reputation but I’d take it over anything bud or coors anyday.

I think this is the best tasting cheap beer you can find. Smooth and easy drinking, but great tasting too. There is actual hop presence in this one. I can’t find anything foul about this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 This was one of my highest ratings at a 4.6(and still is my favorite beer), but I feel like it's finally time to bring its rating into the greater scope of realism. I like it but it's not exactly a super-high-end beverage. Standard straw-yellow American Lager. Sweet corny flavor. Hops? Who cares!? It's less than 6 bucks for a 12 and God would be lucky to drink out of cans half as cool. So the flavor/aroma/palate ratings are all going down but PBR is still a 20 in overall impression for sentimental reasons.
