    For those who don't follow PBR on Twitter, this is pretty on-brand for them and I wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional.

    Totally unprofessional by the folks at Pabst. One would think that their Twitter account was hacked by some hater. Instead, it seems as if they put some airhead in charge of the Twitter account.

    Yes, but authorship of the tweet will look good on his resume when he looks for a job at a number of craft breweries with similar "humorous" brand names, labels and ad campaigns.

    Saw this and thought it was fake. I work for a corporate company and before anything is ever published with their branding it has an approval process. Sounds like they need someone to approve posts as opposed to giving complete authority over to idiots.

    on a side note while inappropriate it was funny.

    When is the last time anyone noticed or even knew PBR had a Twitter? You know now - mission accomplished.

    It's 2022, even brands eat booty :joy: I have been told "don't knock it until you try it", and maybe since I have Covid and can't taste shit anyway the time is right. (I'm talking about PBR get your minds out of the gutter)

    I feel bad for servers who have customers observing Dry January and will inevitably be asked if they have any ass to eat from this.

    So all jokes aside, in the 21st century who in their right mind would think this appopriate? Pabst is not a mom and pop organization. If InBev or MolsonCoors did this someone would be fired publically.

    In the reviews I half suspected the aroma notes to be judged to the beer name and not style

    Crude. The Christian Right always bemoaning the "coarsening " of society. I hate those guys but beginning to think they have a point. Dumbo stuff from PBR..I guess they think they know their audience.

    I was laughing at this shit because I thought it was initially some photoshopped bullshit from Instagram beer meme pages I follow and come to find out it's actually real.

    A coworker and I were theory-crafting whether this was an employee/intern that finally had enough or a really odd marketing campaign. The logic behind the latter was that the people who are fans of PBR likely wouldn't be offended by the tweet just by virtue of the kind of people who like PBR (thus, wouldn't be driven away from the brand) and anyone else might be interested/offended enough to see what's up and it would be in the collective beer unconscious (at least for a little while).

    It was fun to talk about the kind of people who drink PBR, especially reminiscing about metal/punk shows and talking about how most would gravitate toward PBR because it was usually the cheapest thing at the venue. Some of the memes that sprung from this caused further laughter from myself and coworkers.

    The social media person who crashed and burned from this is a hero in my book.

    Eat ass, drive fast.

    I don't know if I was ready to go that far but we got a good chuckle out of the discussion. We partake of shitty beer ourselves being avid beer drinkers so it was more of a discussion about who wouldn't be offended by this and who this might attract to PBR (in the absolute rarest of circumstances), and general reminiscing about our experiences with the beer.

    The people I know who drink PBR drink it because it's cheap which is a valid reason.
