Thirsty Thursdays: Pabst Blue Ribbon

Pabst Blue Ribbon, an American beer since 1844 and like many other American beers is a shadow of what it used to be. Still, the beer keeps winning awards at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup.


For me, it's my go to beer when I don't want something heavy or a complex taste that I can't enjoy while cutting the lawn, fishing, or after a quick ride where I need to remain lucid for the rest of the evening.

When all the micros are emptied it's always great to know that there is still at least 15 or so ice cold PBRs waiting for me in the Beer Fridge. After all, at $15 a 30 pack there is always another 30 waiting in the wings!

I like an ice cold PBR after I take the 'Horse out for a quick hammer in Upper Paugussett State Forest.

PBR is great after a three hour gravel grinder on the Qball.

A PBR is always smooth after a bone shaking, rigid ride on the Dillinger.

PBR is of course the beer of choice for fixed gear riders, the world over!

What is your go to beer?

Ballantine Ale is my favorite budget brew in a bottle.

Schaefer in a can is my official remodeling beer.
