That's a shame.
Why would anyone want to drink stale beer?

PBR has been my go-to most of my drinking life. I don't like this. I'm switching to MGD.

All I can say is: BIG FLATS BABY!!!  ;D

My favorite lawn mower beer is Berliner Weisse.  I'm going to make some this weekend.
We can get Full Sail Session here, but it's kinda expensive.

Around here it's $10-11 for a 12 pack.

Big Flats is kinda sweet tasting.  CHEAP though.  It's like $2.99 for a six pack here.  Blue Ribbon isn't that sweet tasting.  I like it because it's light, but it's not flavorless like Budlight or Bud.

IMO...PBR is one of the best of the LAL's less Munich Helles and Dortmunder styles.

Good all around lawnmower swill.  :)

The only time I drink the cheap stuff is at a baseball game. But we're getting shortchanged on choice in Chicago. We went to a game at Miller Park in Milwaukee last year and they had all kinds of craft beer choices. I was shocked, given who paid for the naming rights.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I always thought Jeff used to play in the Doobie Brothers.



I got a chance to meet the skunk about 10 years ago when he graced the guitar shop I was working at in Nashville. Far out dude!

As for PBR, it's usually dirt cheap around here. Certainly not any more expensive than other light American swill. I see it often at trendy bars on special (usually $1-2 tallboys).

So, my avatar is the National Bohemian guy, Mr. Boh.  The brewery in SE Baltimore has long since been converted to offices and luxury condos, but his giant neon face sits atop the building in a nod to the past (one that I see often from my roof deck).  Pabst now owns the brand along with Colt 45 and other National brands and produces the beer God knows where.  It could come out of the same vat as PBR, Old Style, and others as far as I can tell.

 I really have few or no occasions where I drink macro swill, but I'll drink one if I'm eating crabs on a hot summer day.  Pabst recently introduced Natty Boh on draft... even if they are all marketing, Pabst is smart with the brands.


Maybe now that the new management couldn't care less, they'll sell of the rights to some of their smaller brands and some enterprising Baltimore brewer will try to recreate the old recipe.

Maryland Blue Claw Crabs and PBR are a really nice combo.  :)

I picked up a 12 pack of Olympia 95% Malt in orange cans. It's fairly good, although head retention is not as good as the older recipe. It's sill cheap without marketing hype. Put money in the ingredients and not the marketing department.

ahaha my grandfather used to drink Olympia, I remember the slogan on the can was "Its in the water" and we always joked that the logo should be a picture of a bear standing near the side of a stream facing away from you with his arms crossed infront of him near his waist. ;)
