- 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.

Pabst is by far the most overhyped macro beer in the north america. It looks the same as almost all other macros but the smell of grain is really strong and the taste is very bitter unless served ice cold. I still take regular bud any day
