Holy cheap beer Batman! The Argus shows respect for PBR! affraid

Pabst Blue Ribbon isn’t just a fad. It’s a 168 year old brand that began in Wisconsin, where cheap beer and good beer are often interchangeable. That it’s popular with the cool kids isn’t a reason to deride - it’s, in fact, a reason to celebrate. PBR is a brand that has grown despite a lack of major marketing. While Budweiser and MillerCoors are spending millions on Super Bowl commercials, you can toast their excess with a can of Pabst. It’ll taste better, at least.

Monk’s House of Ale Repute now has Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap. Maybe it’s a nod to its clientele. Maybe enough people asked for it that they were forced into it. I won’t begin to assume the reasoning behind putting PBR in an upscale beer bar, except to say that Jerry Hauck himself said when I interviewed him last month:

“If I’m going to go for one of the American lagers, it’s probably going to be Blue Ribbon.”

What is important to remember is that with Monk's deciding to offer it for patrons PBR is no longer "just for breakfast"!

The beers with flavor infused by honey seem to be popular among the group that I hang with. The beers with flavor from fruit/berries also pretty popular. Not too many seem have adopted any of the retro-beer choices, like PBR.

My favorite is Busch Light.

Agree but when you couldn't get it around here it was a big deal (late 1970s).
