I dont mean to offend anyone who drinks this horse piss, but back in the 70s only little old men and bums would drink that shit. In the 80s and 90s you did not see it anywhere, but it seems to be the drink of choice by so many nowadays.

I guess Im just old and dont get it.

:dunno:

I dont get it either. It is typically the cheap drink of choice, but honestly the cultural craze for the stuff (i.e. hipsters) has actually made it popular to drink so it has become popular. Honestly its not any cheaper than other piss type beers.

however maybe its just because im young, but even a nice chilled PBR is refreshing on a bus ride down from the ski hill at night

I'm not sure if I'm older than you or not. This is the likes of Hamms, Schlitz, and remember good ole Miester Brau now that was nasty.

My buddy turned me onto PBR and it isn't bad. I like it better than Bud. I'm a red guy or porters if I can.

This is much like Leinenkugel coming back to life and I enjoy their beers.

I've drank PBR for 20 years now. I happen to enjoy the taste. I'd still get it even if it was more expensive. Just different taste buds than most I guess.

"Voted America's best in 1893" and like the great white shark it never had to evolve...

Way better than bud, coors, miller. It is cheap "crap", and one of the better tasting ones. Fwiw, Schlitz and Raineer are good ones in this vein too.

Road tripping, that sort of crap this crap is great.

There are certainly better beers but it does fill a niche.

i think the recent pbr phase is pretty funny, all the hipster joints in town have pbr on tap and on special certain days, when 2 years ago you never would have seen it. i think it's just a trend, i personally don't like the taste or find anything special about.
for cheap brew i prefer old mil, call me crazy

What your beer of choice? Please don't say bud or coors cause then to me your post makes no sense. Not that PBR is my beer of choice, I usually just get a variety pack of micro-brews or Colorado native.

Down here there's a little liquor store than does 30 packs for 14 bucks. That's cheaper than coors at 20 for 30. So if I just need a cheap shitty beer I'm all about PBR. It's great for "session" drinking where I can't do a 6 pack of IPA without the taste burning me out. It serves it's purpose as its equivalent to coors, miller, and bud taste wise while usually being a little cheaper.

It's been a long, loooooong time, but back in High school PBR was popular cuz it was cheap! It definitely wasn't the best tasting beer! Then again, WTF did we know? We were kids looking for a cheap drunk!! Hell, when we could get it we would also drink god awful shit like Mad Dog 20/20, Boone's Farm strawberry wine, and (...uhck!) Slo-Gin & OJ!!!


Can't recall for sure, but I believe PBR had (has?) a slightly lower alcohol content too! 3.2% or something! Had to drink a LOT of it to get totally wasted!

In fact to have a "PBR Experience" was synonymous with a really, REALLY bad puking hangover! :yahoo: :eusa_clap:

I only drink it at one certain bar because they give away a nice Mountain Bike away at the end of the season. You get a ticket everytime you buy a PBR.

Why Not?

Rainier is my cheap shred beer of choice.

PBR is ehh, but I'd drink it over Bud, Coors, Miller, etc. I drank it a lot in college when it was cheaper, but since it's "hip" now, the price went up.

Otherwise give me a good black IPA and I'm in a good place.

If I walk into a bar that has PBR on tap, I walk right back out...



Can't say I've got ONE beer anymore that's my fave. Most of the stuff I drink is made in Canada. For mass produced stuff, Alexander Keiths isn't bad, Ricards White, Stella.

I'm not sure if I've become a beer snob, but I think if I'm paying ANYTHING for the stuff, it should actually taste good! I'd rather drink 2 good craft beers than 10 bottles of piss.

Noticed this in the car parked next to me the other night.

Apparently they were road tripping to the liquor store (in the same parking lot) thus PBR filled the niche for their road sodas. Clearly they didn't even bother to conceal them.

It's the cheapest shit they sell at bars generally, especially mountain bars, therefore I buy it. Nothing to difficult to understand about that, and as always, when comparing something as dumb as beer choice to masculinity and sexuality you just let everyone in that little secret of yours. :eusa_clap:

Also, I enjoy not lining the pockets of InBev or MillerCoors.
