When I had a PBR last summer, there was something wrong with the tap and the beer was spoiled. It was basically undrinkable. Now, considering I can drink even the worst of beers without a flinch, I decided that Pabst Blue Ribbon deserved another try. Pabst Blue Ribbon is the first beer to sell 10 million cases of beer in the United States. It’s an American staple and deserves recognition for that alone. Let’s give Pabst Blue Ribbon the chance it deserves: A Whiskey Goldmine Review.
Pabst Blue Ribbon Tasting Notes:
PBR is sweet, dry, crisp with a grain aftertaste. Very refreshing! There you have it. That’s our review. It’s an easy drinking session lager and pretty good flavor. We love it. If you got a problem with that, nobody cares.
Now, it wouldn’t be a Pabst Blue Ribbon article if we didn’t address the hipster issue. Yes, Hipsters drink PBR at staggering amounts and the Hipsters are multiplying exponentially like a badass zombie movie. The Hipsters where PBR t-shirts, and drink PBR like it’s their uber sudo liberal (but not the democratic party) political identity. Yup, their socially advanced, and your craft beer is just too cool to be cool. Drinking real beer is uncool. It’s scary, frightening and Hipsters could simply revolt and kill us all. However, now that everyone knows the Hipsters drink PBR to be cool, or un-cool, they are moving on to a new beer. And they probably will officially move on after this review. It’s too cool to be called un-cool. Hipsters are moving on to National Bohemian. Yup, they be drinkin the “Nati bo.” Review coming soon. We’re gonna single handedly do our best to destroy the Hipster Nati Bo revolution. Someone might get smacked in their face for this one.
Pabst Blue Ribbon
American Style Premium Lager
Pabst Blue Ribbon is a premium lager brew crafted with a hefty infusion of 6-row barley in its ingredient package, a carefully balanced carbohydrate profile from corn syrup, and a unique combination of Pacific domestic hops blended with an imported Yugoslavian variety. Fermented with a pure culture of yeast and aged at high gravity, PBR is cellared and finished to the smooth, robust likeness of a fine Pilsner.

Pabst Blue Ribbon Light
American Style Light Lager
Pabst Blue Ribbon Light is brewed with the traditional grains and malts of a fine lager, and is tailored to the brewing specifications of a low calorie beer. Hopped with the same intensity as PBR, the light version is a satisfyingly superior way to bend an arm.
