Maybe Lone Star is the local equivalent.

Note, I have no problem with people drinking cheap beer, I just think it's funny that people make such a big deal about PBR.

There seems to be a rising popularity with shiner bock as a trendy beer too.

Not anymore. The headquarters moved to Woodridge IL a few years ago.

The official website has an iPhone app to locate PBR:
PBR (http://www.pabstblueribbon.com/AgeVerification.aspx - broken link)

I didn't even think they still made PBR and Lonestar anymore. Years ago we were going to Padre Island (leaving out of Arlington). We had the truck full of Coors iced down because the further south you went you starting running out of Coors first, then Bud, even started running out of Schlitz, then it got to be all you could find it seemed like was Pearl, Pabst, Lonestar, OM, etc. We partied in SA, went on down the next day to Mexico, that night to Padre and every one on the beach the next day wanted to know where we had found the Coors!

My dh would just die if they quit making LoneStar.

As far as PBR fad, maybe its the Zac Brown song "Toes".

"Got my a$$ in a lawn chair, toes in the clay, not a worry in the world a PBR on the way, life is good today............."

Me too!! I hear a lot of people knock Lone Star, but the reality is that it's got a stigma because it's priced lower than others. But folks from out of town, or those that aren't familiar with it REALLY like it. It's a GREAT beer. MUCH better than the Miller/Coors/Buds that are so popular because the run commercials.

Lone Star is really good beer.

Agreed. Lone Star has a good taste and its cheap. Its quality and taste is superior to Bud/Coors/Miller IMO. Though it is manufactured by Miller Brewing... I think. (*tear*) Even their light version still has a pretty good taste which can be almost impossible to find in most light versions. Those people knocking on Lone Star are usually the ones sipping on toliet water also known as Budlight.

Lone Star has a pretty decent history too, right here in San Antonio!
