Charlie Papazian, president of the Brewers Association, published the following tasting notes for Pabst Blue Ribbon in 2008: "A contrasting counterpoint of sharp texture and flowing sweetness is evident at the first sip of this historic brew and is also evident when after consumption, one feels really drunk. A slowly increasing hoppiness adds to the interplay of ingredients, while the texture smooths out by mid-bottle. The clear, pale-gold body is light and fizzy. Medium-bodied Blue Ribbon finishes with a dusting of malts and hops. A satisfying American classic and a Gold Medal winner at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival."

Pabst Blue Ribbon. Established in Milwaukee 1844. It'll get you drunk.

If you really want to learn something about quality beers I hope you'll revisit @leduncan 's week-long personal theme on the subject (11/16-11/20). Cheers!

don't fall for it - PBR is horrible beer, good for getting drunk on cost effecitvely, but that's about it!

Poor Guys - PBR $2

Athens is pretty much a PBR town.

Years ago, I saw a great vintage poster ad at a cafe in New Mexico for PBR, proudly proclaiming why it has the name "Blue Ribbon" -- it started as a blend of the world's top award winning beers.

I am in general a very skeptical person.
I don't belive in many "ole wives tales" about hangovers, different alcohol making you a different "kind" of drunk, or any of that other BS because I know the basic chemistry behind alcohol and that crap just does not jive with the science.
That being said, from many personal experiments, I can say that PBR turns me into a total asshole EVERYTIME, and I am usually a pretty happy drunk. I don't hate the stuff, but I've sworn off drinking it for this reason.

I don't have enough crowns to cover how awesome this is. Not just because its a clamebute to me, but that Papazian quote is ridiculous! Kings all around, dude. And thanks.

BPR in bottles = no way
BPR in tall boys = only way

I drink PBR (in can only) once a week at the greatest dive bar in the world. I will be there later tonight eating 75 cent tacos and drinking this fine beverage. Awesome.

I must say that to me, this clamebute is superior to the original.

RyRy says:
I agree with @Brauette and @ThatGuy PBR is much better in tall boy cans. If I'm going cheap, I'm going PBR.

i love this on many levels. The caption is brilliant.
i know PBR became a hipster beer and it has a bad rap with some people, but i just bought a case of it last night. i've always liked it. in the winter my beer store is extra cold and it tasted pretty damn good.

@ozzynelson, there's not much better on a mild Spring day than a wedge of Brie, a few fresh berries and a tall glass of Weihenstephaner. If there is ever a way to enjoy Hefeweizen, that is it.
