Pabst Blue Ribbon

Nothing says Good Cheap Beer like Pabst Blue Ribbon!! This beer has to be responsible for more unwanted pregnancies then Kareem abdul Jabbar. I can't even begin to fathom who many Punkrock parties I have been to with nothing but Pabst blue ribbon. Rubbermaid garbage cans as far as the drunkin' eye can see , filled with Ice and Pabst. The Grough sound of bad local punk bands playing in the background over the sounds over drunkin' punk rock fucking. At one of these said events i watch a guy lay on the ground and beg a girl to kick the shit out of him, to which she booted his face in and broke his nose. I give Pabst at least 15 percentage point towards teen pregnancy at the least. They should change their slogan to making baby punk rockers since 1844. Pabst did infact win for america's best beer in 1893 , but never actually won a blue ribbon.The name came from the Blue ribbon tied to the neck of every bottle from 1882-1916. Granted at the time most water would make you sick if not boiled. Warm water or a cold Pabst on a hot summer day , thats a no brainer! On top of the cultural relevance to Pabst there is also something to be said for the box and can art. Something about it is very American and almost patriotic in the design. Utilizing red white and blue and also the hops and grain on the bottom of the seal is very similar to the american dollar bill. unfortunately Pabst numbers are going right along with america's economy. Hitting all time highs in 1977 at 18 million barrels and dropping to below 1 million barrels by 2001. More recently Pabst has had some deal of merit in the world of beer , winning the gold medal at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival. Pabst also has markets outside of the USA, such as China Pabst Blue Ribbon. Who recently released a beer call Pabst Blue Ribbon 1844 , that sells for 44 USD per bottle. They also export to sweden as of 2012. Giving so love the our Canadian folks out there , we know you brew some pabst in Ontario :)

Well we have talked about everything Pabst other than the beer itself. Pabst has a slightly malt flavor nicly balanced with hops to give it a darker flavor in a pale beer. Its a American style Lager and goes down really easy. You can find your self a six pack deep pretty easy if its cold on a hot day. As for color Pabst is a light gold , i would say a light for a lager. It is far more flavorful then any beer i have found in its price range. Runners up have been Olympia , and Lucky. (mind you Pabst is very cheep beer)
