So, a light Malt Liquor like Mickey's? That could be okay.
They've got a ways to go, but I guess they're trying to catch up to AB's "Budweiser family" line extensions.
And that's not counting the PBR Light and the PBR 5.9% brewed by Sleeman in Canada.
(I guess PBR is one of their lone bright spots, esp. now that Not Your Father's/Mother's FMB's are crashing).
No Pabst Blue Ribbon Ale revival yet?(Just as well, MC can't brew a decent American-style ale. Or maybe they just can't do it for the money Pabst is willing to pay them).
Sounds like bud light platinum
Why don't they cut to the chase and call it "Imperial PBR"?
A little low for an Imperial, but works.
Sounds good to me, PBR is about as easy drinking as a beer can possibly get.
I have been thinking this for years, but never said anything, until now.
I sincerely appreciate the images/pictures you find and post.
Thank you for all of your efforts.
As long as it doesn't smell like Bud Light Platinum.
Yup and with this being released soon it will be fresh. I will definitely be checking this out when I see it.
Me too, one thing that’s absolutely certain is that it will not suck.
So just regular high-gravity-brewed PBR that isn't diluted?
Got a sample. It’s dangerous. I think people are going to like it.
Yeah, who knows? While the geekery is ridiculing the websites of AB's and MC's listing of their ingredients and mocking AB's "corn syrup" ads, Pabst (Contract) Brewing Co. offers nothing of the kind and yet maintains it's "hip" image for many.
Check out the Pabst Blue Ribbon website - lots of articles about PBR "art" and a large online store for PBR hats, sweatsocks, golf tees and Jenga games - but if you didn't know it already you'd have no idea that Pabst Blue Ribbon is a beer, much less any info on it.
Then there's this headline about the tiny brewery they opened in a building in the former 5.5M bbl. Milwaukee facility they closed in the 1990s:
"Brewery made beers". What does that even mean? That's the best they could come up with?
[Bartender, pointing to tap handles]: "Hey, see these beers here? Yup, made in a brewery!"
Maybe they mean they were made in their brewery, unlike +99% of the 5 million barrels of beer they sell, brewed at MillerCoors or City or other companies' breweries?
A previous version of their site had a description of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer that read like a parody:
"original brewery made beers". That is the way I read it (i.e., their brewery) but I am confident that you will comment that it is not really their "original" brewery.
I will snag some to check it out, curious how people will react to this one.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but PBR prices have skyrocketed as of lately. Used to be a solid $8.99 12pk now I'm seeing it at $12.99.
Here in AZ at TW its 18 cans for $13.99.
My thought as well, but without the misleading "light" description on the label. That being said, if it's anything like BLP otherwise, I'll be avoiding this latest batch from PBR like the plague.
Minneapolis 24PK of Pabst 12OZ can's ...$14
I really like PBR but not sure I'll buy this, at 6.5% it's a bit too heavy to session and if I'm just going to drink 1 beer, I'd rather have something with a bit more flavor. 5.5% would be better IMO.
Michigan has had it for about a month. My first impression was a poorly cobbled together Marzen that turns into a sweet AAL as you get to the bottom of the glass.
I thought the APA was actually a pretty decent beverage for the $$$. *shrugs*
Maybe it's because my expectations were "This is gonna be basura." and it turned out to be "okay".
Well it’s PBR, if you want the lower abv it’s available.
Or, why not just resurrect Pabst's BIG CAT MALT LIQUOR?
Other than because no one remembers it (or, those who did died in jail)?
Lol. Heard of it but never saw it.
Jaguar or Leopard?
Added it to my list of stuff to try.
Never heard of it, but I love the can.
Going shopping for this tomorrow or err today
Picked up some today. A very decent beer for the price. The flavor is good and I don't pick up any offensive flavors. Some sweet malts and a crisp finish. Definitely not malt liquor.
What was your cost?
Not 100% sure because I didn't get a recite, and I'm not 100% sure what the DFH super 8 ran me.. but I am going to say anywhere from $8-$12 dollars for a 12 pack of cans.
OK, thanks I was figuring it to be around that, not a bad price at all.
Might be a solid summer beer from the sounds of it.
Saw an ad from one of the local beer stores. $6.49 a 6pack.
I'm sort of interested, but at the same time, I don't understand what the target for this is (Ice beer drinkers?). What is appealing about PBR, Hamm's, High Life, etc. to me is that you can drink several of them and not get drunk. I'll probably give it a try because I enjoy PBR quite a bit, but I doubt it'll supplant the good ol' standard Blue Ribbon for me.
I would rather see them go full, genuine German Helles or a Classic American Pilsner instead. I think they have the capabilities to do both of those very well.
Making a pils or helles would be playing themselves. This is true Pabst, you can drink a few of these and not get drunk the abv is 6.5% it is stronger but it's not outrageous.
I would love and buy the Hell out of a good Helles or Pils from them, and I'm sure others would, too. It doesn't matter about what-ifs, though, because it likely won't happen.
I can easily drink many 6-8% beers and not get drunk, but it's not usually a pleasant session because beers that ABV are usually heavy to me. I prefer to be drinking 5% or less these days, and the closer to 4% (or even better, 3%), the better.
I'd actually be really interested, if that's what it is.
I thought of you when I typed it, but I really would love if they'd do one. I bet it would be great.
It would be great if they indeed brewed this beer like an American brewer would circa 1900 - highly hopped and limited amount of adjuncts.
In the past I have advocated that a regional brewery make a beer such as this (e.g., Genesee, Yuengling,...) but needless to say no luck.
A very small regional brewery (PA and eastern OH) does brew a beer like this: Straub 1872 Lager but needless to say it has limited distribution and availability of Straub beer in the Philly area has been problematic of late. I discussed this beer in a New Beer Sunday thread:
