Brew Review: Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR)

After trying many classy brews, it’s about time I reviewed an old standby of mine, Pabst Blue Ribbon. A pharmacy favorite, PBR can be found nearly everywhere beer is sold – and some places it’s not.

PBR pours a light straw color with…oh forget it. Who am I kidding, here – it’s Pabst. If you’re looking for a complex taste, you’ve come to the wrong place.

Now, if you’re looking for the perfect way to get wasted without resorting to drinking out of a trough, well…there you have it. That trashy, piss-drunk at the quarry vibe is here in spades.

We all have friends who are either staunch defenders or serious haters of the beer related to hipster dives and bozo jocks alike – and that’s the magic of it all. Without taking notice, both parties have developed an affinity for PBR’s cheap musk and watery taste.

It’s like world peace in an aluminum can…or something like that.

Pabst Blue Ribbon stats:

Smells like: house party at the McCarthy’s, 1996

Tastes like: minor malts in a tin can alley

Alcohol content: 4.74%, but you can drink a billion

  1. PBR has always had a bad rep. Campuses seem to think the "natural" beers are a better choice for parties, but PBR is a diamond in the rough…

  2. PBR, have been doing a few sixes a week of it over the last few weeks, @ $3.49 a six in Nothern NJ, who could blame me, its perfect for those long poker games when you need more than 10 but less than 24 beers in you

  3. drinking is a sin that leads to homosexual lust and murder. don't tell me I'm a liar either, Harvard has done plenty of studies and they proved it. Stop drinking beer and repent right now.
