What would we do without PBR?

If/when Pabst loses the lawsuit to MillerCoors then the likely outcome is a sell off of their profitable brands to other brewing companies. Pabst Brewing owns quite a number of brands (PBR, Schlitz, National Bohemian, Stroh's, Colt 45, Lone Star, etc).

My hunch is that other brewing companies (either AB/InBev, MillerCoors or North American Breweries[makers of Genesee]) will likely snatch up any brands that are worth having. I could even see a scenario where one of the larger independent craft breweries (Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, or New Belgium) could buy Pabst Blue Ribbon and keep it alive.

So Pabst Brewing Company (which, of course, has not actually brewed beer in many years) is likely to disappear in the coming years with some of their stable of brands living on under new owners.

Fans of PBR and other Pabst owned brands can relax. MillerCoors and Pabst have settled their lawsuit. PBR will be around for a good while to come...

But why? Pabst being considered a "craft" beer is like Rolling Rock being considered one.

PBR was rated the #1 Dive Bar Beer in the Williamsburg,Brooklyn hood not too long ago. Narragansett was a close second. 16oz cans for 3$ were in high demand in the beer drinking bars proudly described as "dives"..not a bad deal in NYC...They say the recipe today is the original from 1844 in Milwaukee...who knows but it's stood the test of time. Good to see Pabst will be around, always thought the can design was special, price was fair, beer wasn't half bad. I see it in all the stores around NYC for 8.99 a 12 pack.. Can't go wrong with that...

I don't believe that assertion for a minute.

NYC hipsters have moved on from PBR, it's all about High Life and Tecate now
