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. Natureís choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as Americaís Best in 1893.

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 Iíd 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 canít 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.

This stuff is miserable. Yellow, fizzy, cardboard smell. Super sweet flavor, like drinking sprite. Belch inducing carbonation.

This beer is the absolute BEST! At least I had the best time when my friend bought a round for a table of beer geeks just to rattle their cage. I drank mine as most sat and pouted. Whiners. It isnít THAT bad. Sweet after drinking hops all day. And rather nearly flavorless, but a good bucket oí fun. (or foam)

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 As bad as this beer is, itís worth the money. It has more flavor than most beers in itís price range. Just remember: Donít expect too much, itís from Milwaukee. or texas. or where ever. Actually has a mild hop flavor, a rarity in this class. If Iím swilling, this is it.

Well... it wasnít as horible as I thought it would be. Damn, I hate pilsners, but had to try the ole redneck favorite. On the positive side, with itís lack of color, flavor, malt, and hops, it did quench my thirst. Tap water is cheaper though...
