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.

Obviously Pabst is a macrobrew. But Pabst in my opinion is a lot better than most of the macrobrews like Bud and Coors. It still has that macro after taste. But it's not nearly like most of the macros. I'm not going to drink this on a consistant basis, but I can handle once in a while on a hot day.

OK, this isn't the Pabst of the days when Milwaukee was the Beer Capital of the U.S., and Pabst was perhaps the most distinctive of the major brewer's offerings. Today's Pabst is hardly Blue Ribbon caliber, but it's a fair budget beer. I don't understand the recent upsurge in popularity. Pabst is a decent budget brew, not what it once was, but OK for the intended market. Would I drink a PBR on a hot summer day (if that was all that was offered)? Sure. Would I have more than one? I don't think so.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Fizzy, yellow, corn-smelling, corn-tasting, bland, and watery. The first one cost me $1. A second was offered for free but I declined.

Horrible beer. Not even worth the .25 per can they charge you for it. Equal to Steel Reserve 2-11.

Like most American Standard style beer, this one is bland and nasty, with it's sole saving grace being that it's cheap (and .1% stonger than Budweiser).

This is the beer to like if you are young hipster anti-beer snob. (Don't believe me? Look at all of the 4 and 5 star reviews of PBR by folks with only one rating.) It used to come in cool returnable bottles that were great for homebrewers. It tastes somewhat like all of the other American Standards, but it still has a place in my heart. A PBR in a bucket at the Delta Cafe is hard to beat, and I do not even live in Portland! Must be served cold!

The fallback standard. Great for the beer helmet. The gas station 2 doors down sells this shit at 30 for $13.00. Joeldude and Sethdude definitely rock this a lot.

Pabst Blue Ribbon was awarded the Blue Ribbon of excellence at the 1893 World Fair. It rocked then and it rocks now. PBR is the nectar of the gods, a good for what ales you choice for the young and the young at heart. For bang for buck, Pabst Blue Ribbon stands heads and shoulders above the rest. When your tongue tickles for a tall one and your liver wants some liquid say this simple phrase and get the world in return- PBR me, ASAP.

It looks watery and smells pretty nasty, but it is surpsisingly tasty for a cheap, mass-produced american beer. My only real complaint is it is a little too gassy.

Okay so you're layin on a beach, minding your own buisness when all of a sudden...BAM!!! you get hit in the crotch with something...it's an ice cold PBR. You crack it open & take a sip and all of a sudden the Doobie Brothers show up and they're playin "China Grove" and it rocks...hard. You've just experienced Liquid Cold Sunshine that gets better each and every time. Natty Ice and Genny Cream Ale are for fratboys...Pabst is for the distinguished alcoholic.
