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.

Iím going to rate this beer in context to Schlitz, mainly because they are similiar beers and I really have trouble finding stuff to rate about these kinds of beers because they are so simple itís hard to describe them. While I found the Schlitz to possess both more hop flavors (grassy)than any other common macro I can think of, the PBR was much less bitter. The Schlitz was also metallic tasting (the grassy hops meshing with another flavor perhaps?) and the PBR lacked this. The PBR is a bit sweeter than the Schlitz, but still remains crisp. It doesnít even become undrinkable cold. Too bad typical beer swillers think this beer is below them. It really is a good cheap beer. That being said, the only times Iíll be likely to buy this is for times when Iím not looking to really enjoy the beer, but looking for something that goes down easily and provides some social lubrication.

Pretty bland. Not much of an impression either way for me...good or bad. I grew up in Indiana seeing everybody drink this, so it has a special history for me.

Donít get me wrong, this beer is crappy, but it has a certain mystique that lifts it above the rest of the bottom feeders in the beer world.

I give the Pabst people an A+ on the cool can. Was extremely drunk when I consumed this beer. Almost didn’t make it home that night. My buddy Mike drinks this sludge all the time. From what I remember it wasn’t all that bad and went down rather good with my frying pan cooked rare burger. Reminds me of two old guys sitting out on a deck in Texas staring at a dusty desert road. Staring into nothingness.

Definitely bad....but I too have a soft spot for it as it was one of the first beers of my youth. Havenít tasted it 10 years...since it became a virtual brewer, I had to buy a 6. Bad, not the worst.
