Interesting discussion about Pabst, I had wondered where this was with Miller putting the screws to them. I would hate to see them forced out.
As a home brewer and judge I enjoy a great well crafted beer. But, once in a while, probably close to but not quite payday, I just want a cheap night out and don't want to spend an extra $20 on craft beers. A year or two back I did a cheap beer, bar hopping night. I decided to compare some big beer commercial standards - Busch Light, Miller Lite, Coors Light and PBR (I ignored Bud/Bud Light). These are the beers that most places and a lot of dives have either always on special as tall boys or have on $2 "domestic" pint nights. IMHO PBR was the heads up winner. I realize it isn't a light beer, but it by far was the best tasting cheap beer of the night. If I am at a bar that doesn't really have a decent craft selection or I don't feel like paying an extra $3 for a craft beer that evening a PBR tall boy and a glass has become my go to (it use to be Bud or Bud Light, but I don't really like it any more). Don't hate me.
