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.

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.

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.
