So the every couple month controversial topic came up once again on a Hamm's facebook beer group claiming that Pabst and Hamm's are the same exact beer. People that do or used to work at Miller in the group claim that they literally change cans and fill them up with whatever the Hamm's/PBR concoction is. I do know a little about something and I can tell you they are two different beers. I even did a side by side test once. The abv is 4.6 for Hamm's and 4.74 for Pabst. The Ibu ratings were not available for Hamm's but Pabst came in at 10. I will say they do have the same color and the aroma is slightly similar but both beers differ in flavor. Hamm's has the classic corn/grain American beer flavor while Pabst tends to lean towards the German pilsner bitterness side of a lager. So here's the question, Is Hamm's and Pabst different recipes or does Miller Brewing secretly make one beer and put them in two different packages for an easy buck? Anyone anyone Bueller ?
