Pabst Blue Ribbon Lives On

Hipsters and budget beer drinkers alike may rejoice. The once in peril Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer has reached a settlement with MillerCoors. Hooray beer! The original dispute is that according to PBR, MillerCoors wanted to charge them an exorbitant amount of cash money to continue to produce the beer after 2020. So PBR filed a $400 million dollar lawsuit against the brewing giant.

While the jury deliberated, the two sides apparently decided to handle their shit like adults and come to a settlement on their own. We’re quite certain that behind closed doors there was a series of fisticuffs with the hearty PBR guys winning out in the brawl, but remaining humble enough to not initiate a hostile takeover of MillerCoors. Well played gentlemen!

One that pleases both sides and allows Pabst to continue to offer the blue ribbon beer that everyone will drink provided they don’t have to pay for it.  You can continue to go down to some hipster bar and get a can of Pabst for $15 or go to a normal bar and pay fifty cents for their entire stock of PBR. Either way, your drink of choice is now safe!

Whatever way you celebrate this “victory” in favor of Pabst Brewing Company, just remember to make good choices. We know we sound like your mom but don’t sour this victory doing something dumb, like drinking and driving, calling your ex, marrying the stripper, eating at Taco Bell, or marrying the girl you picked up 10 minutes before last call.

Celebrate, drink, and be happy that one of the longest standing and most recognizable and affordable beer brands will continue to provide you with beer that you can buy for party guests you don’t really like, but don’t really dislike either. Drink up, or don’t it’s your life, you can live it how you want.

    Good for Pabst, people look at me funny when I order a PBR but I don’t care.
    What really T’s me off is when some server says “we don’t carry that”.
    Long live PBR!

    Bred born and raised in Milwaukee. Drank a LOT of Pabst and toured their brewery several times.
    I knew I was a really heavy drinker, when I was in basic training (1979) and my brother sent me a newspaper clipping that Pabst was laying off the 3rd shift. True story. We had a good laugh at that.
    Now I’m in Texas and PBR is harder to find down here, but it still tastes like home.

    Can’t say I’m a beer drinker on any given day, more of a whisky man and proud of it! But glad to see two of the oldest brewers in the nation come to settlement for the good of the people and well F__k the lawyers. Why in this nation of we the people do we have to continue to fight for our heritage and past against the all mighty dollar. Rest in peace George H. W. and carry on people!

    This is GREAT news…. I grew up just 3 blocks away from the PBR Brewery in Newark, NJ….. That bottle stood tall for as long as I can remember…. and the sight of it always said to me “You’re home now…” This company brought me wonderful memories before I could ACTUALLY purchase beer myself…. #StandStrongPBR

    So, PBR will continue?…this is a “victory” for beer?…umm, How?!
    Yes, I have consumed “a number ” of PBR(mostly in college & financially challenged). So, I do feel qualified to ask.
    Thank you,
