- Pabst Blue Ribbon is brewed in the finest traditions of an American Premium Lager dating back to 1844. Brewed with a combination of 2 & 6-row malted barley, select cereal grains and American and European hops, Pabst Blue Ribbon is fermented with a proprietary lager yeast. Our unique fermentation and maturation process results in a smooth, full bodied beer with a clean, crisp finish with a fine noble hop aroma.

The only adjunct I'll buy. Just glad the Russians didn't get their hands on this brew. I feel it's our duty as BA'ers to promote this to the younger/cheaper set so that they avoid lining the pockets of BMC. You see a college kid with a bud lite, dope slap him and give him a PBR. It's American dammit!

Good beer. For $17 for a 30 pack you cant get anything better. I love that this beer comes in 30 packs. Not many good beers come in 30 packs.

Sweeter and perhaps more flavourful than other AAL's; that can be good or bad. Sometimes I want something more watery, just to chug back, like Busch or something. Either way, I'll play the hipster game when I want to.

PBR is the "white trash chic" trend beer today. I have always liked it. It has a great hop flavor and is very smooth.

I will never understand why anyone likes this beer, tastes like dirty water and the after taste is even worse

If it's 110 degrees and your at the lake and you wanna be able to drink beer all day, then grab this. I really can't see any other time where it would be a good idea.
