NOOOOO!! Pabst sold to the Russkies!

Now my beloved PBR will be tainted by Putin and his ilk.

Seriously: I actually like PBR. If you move beyond Budweiser which is truly swill, there are a few cheap American (erm....formerly American) lagers that are pretty decent. The other one being High Life.

hal, granted: Fine Beer it's not. But have a look at the ratings at beeradvocate.

[www.beeradvocate.com]

It actually reviews pretty damn well. I have no talent for describing flavors, but I like it. By contrast, I can't stand Budweiser and will NOT drink anything labeled "Lite."

Nope. In fact, I had to look it up! Is it any good?

I don't usually drink cheap beer... But, when I do I prefer Pabst.

Seriously, it amazes that American brands can be sold to other countries. Maybe someday Apple will be sold to Turkey ... or Saudi Arabia. Wouldn't that be dandy?

I just ordered a PBR and a shot of Jim Beam at a bar yesterday. I was congratulated by the guy sitting next to me. He said the combo should be called "The Americana". Not anymore. Pretty depressing...

Sorry Shakes, that site was pointed out to me earlier. Maybe even here. She's so completely full of shiit she makes Dr. Oz look like fricken' Dr. Walter Reed.

Yeah... on the internet, just about any article or blog title that contains, "SHOCKING" should be dismissed.

American companies have purchased international brands, why shouldn't it slice both ways.

Try Stone or any other decent IPA and then tell me you still like Pabst. Say what you will about Bud but all they had to do was hiccup to get the NFL to start cleaning up its act.

So much for those severe economic sanctions we are putting on the Russians.

I have tried Stone and decent IPA or pale ale is my favorite when I go out. I love Dale's Pale Ale on tap. Believe me, I like good craft beer. I love it.

I still like Pabst.

Here's a Wiki article that I passed around to friends last month. I see that Oasis is listed as the new owner.
[en.wikipedia.org]
Pabst and the beers on the list below are made by various Miller Breweries around the states.

Actually, its the other way around. Apple could buy several countries, with a check.

Oh sure, and after that Apple will make electronics in Communist China and move its operations off-shore to avoid taxes. Ya, right.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I've only read a few things on that site, but haven't seen anything that was inaccurate.

Silvarios, it's become hugely popular in bars that cater to "hipsters." I don't drink it when I go out; I usually go for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. But I like it at home.

Ah, I don't go to bars, but I know many drinkers. None of them drink Pabst, so it flew right by my head.
