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.

Not as bad as everyone thinks if you consider it competition (Miller & Bud). Ice cold this is a good beer, they actually serve it at Milwaukee Public Golf courses. Don't let it get warm, however.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 cheap, somewhat better than other macros... the price is the main good point of this.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 For $12 a 30/pack and $3.75/6-pounders, it really isnt horrible. Just drink it REALLY cold or it will taste like crap. The upside is that the more you drink, the less you taste it.

It's not good, so why do we love it? Is it because it makes us thing of paneled basements and the stolen pleasures of Dad's forbidden stash? Whatever. Just make sure to drink it really really cold.

I drank this on the beach today..and it did the job..it's one of those thirst quenching but NOT good beers that i would never buy unless i was going to the beach (cans only) and had no choice..but i must say..very creamy mouthfeel although the carbination was a bit low..everything else mirrored adjuncty american lager though..but not all that bad.

You can actually find this on draught in Champaign, Illinois. Surpringly good for a frat beer. Weak color, nose and palate, but richer taste than I expected and highly drinkable like I did. Grandpa's beer has come of age.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 Too bad this beer is trendy and all the hippies like to order it at the local pub. It's a small notch above the other BMC suspects. It actually has some malt flavor and its an easy one to chug back. Quite a thirst quencher on a hot day and it doesn't have too much of that corn flavor showing through. Standard stuff but a decent pick up for some swillin and chillin.

I have often driven by the big rotating sign in downtown Milwaukee that has the big blue ribbon on it, and have wondered how this beer tastes. Now I know, and it is pretty crappy. But for the price, it cannot be beat, and it is a great alternative to that other Milwaukee beer.
