Default Пиво Пабст Голубая лента

The Pabst Brewing Company, makers of the hipster fave Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and other marques such as Colt 45, Old Milwaukee, Schlitz, Lone Star, Ranier, and Old Style, has been sold to a Russian company, Oasis Beverages. This means virtually all of the domestic beer in America is now foreign beer. Will it taste better if we call it an import?

I did not even know that Blue Ribbon was a hipster favorite. It was my Dad's beer of choice.

Should be an improvement.

It's EVERYWHERE on Capitol Hill, in Seattle. Except that it's referred to as "PeeBeeAR" (PBR).

Tragically hip. One day hipster tastes will change, and suddenly shops selling fedoras, PBR and suspenders will regret chasing the "ironic" crowd.

I think fedoras are the domain of MRAs, rather than hipsters.

I was at a bar in Vegas (quite possibly the diviest dive bar in Clark County) that advertised those beers, and a few others, as "Shit Beer Wednesday." Stuff people with functional tastebuds avoid.

edit: Actually, worst beer I've tasted is probably Bud Light Lime. Then Bud/Bud Light came out with a clamato beer. :shudder: :nope: :vomit:

I'm pretty sure that Johnny Russell was no hipster.


Though this guy might be.


However, it occurs to me that I may not even know what a hipster is.

My grandfather owned a Pabst distributorship. Bought into it as a silent partner, wound up running it when two of the other three partners died and the third couldn't take the job. I've never tasted the stuff. My dad never liked beer, probably because he spent his adolescence working on the beer trucks.

LOL you normcore* types guard your cultural semiotics jealously, don't you? Your songs consist of little more than dull recountings of a series of objects and references that make up your personal brand identities.

* This is a type of hipster. :iceburn:

PBR tastes just like Budweiser to me. It's to be expected, virtually all large commercial producers of lagers are using the same time-tested recipe. But, the reason most of the people I see at the dive bar I sometimes frequent (ironic, I know), buy PBR for two reasons, one, it's "high point" beer, not 3.2%, and two, it's cheap, the same price for a 16 ounce can as other domestic 3.2% beers in 12 ounce cans or bottles.

That said I drink Miller Lite, because I'm a supertaster on bitter things. Miller, either Lite or "the champagne of beers" Miller High Life, are malty-tasting sweet beers with very little bitter hoppy taste.

Miller Lite won the gold medal for Best American-style Lager at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. There were 32 entrants in that category. Miller Lite won gold in this same category at the GABF in 2010 as well, and silver in 2003 and 2012.

So, up your nose with a rubber hose and in your ear with a can of beer, beer snobs.

That begs the question that there is even such a thing as an American-style lager snob.

Winning the gold medal for the Best-American Style Lager is equivalent to winning the gold medal for the best tasting horse piss.

I'm not competent to judge beer, but I can tell you on the basis of what my hipster neighbors say, you're drinking horse piss. Whatever it is.

I'm not really a beer drinker, but I can say that I recently quaffed a draft at Kloster Weltenburg, hard by the Donau and reputedly the world's oldest working brewery.

The dark, smokey lager was fine.

Does this make me a snob?
