Until you have a PBR on tap at The Miller High Life Lounge in Des Moines, you shouldn't mock PBR.

PBR is the nastiest shiat I ever drank.

I may prefer vomit over PBR. It's close.

Hasn't Miller High Life been the new PBR for hipsters for the past couple of years? I'm personally moving on to this:

When I was in elementary school we took field trips to Pabst Brewery.  The tour guides would give everyone dixie cups full of watered-down beer.  Life in the 80's was fun.

PBR is just as shiatty as every other shiatty American beer.  If you want something undervalued, drink Busch.

They serve more than 3.2 beer in Iowa?

They should just stick to drinking Budweiser. You simply can't surpass American excellence in brewing, and Budweiser has been around for a long time. The clean, crisp taste of Budweiser is hands down the best beer in the world, and PBR should be thankful it's served alongside it.

I always like explaining the fraternity symbols on a can of PBR to hipsters, their face just melts.

I tried to read that article.

But there was something about it that annoyed me.

I'm not sure what it was.

Just as it was about to explain itself.

I have a similar argument with my friends every Sunday at the local pub.

Some of the poor Bastards think that PBR actually qualifies as beer.

Is this one of those times where it's so hipster that it gets popular and then stops being hipster because it's popular and creates a veritable Moebius strip of hipster? I'm so confused.

I'm confused. PBR is shiat. Why would anyone want to be associated with it?

Careful pointing things like that out on Fark. I did once, a long time ago, and immediately my ability to get home in time to watch The People's Court was called into question.

While PBR isn't very good, it can't touch Keystone for nasty beer or my all time un-favorite, Old Milwaukee, which I fondly refer to as Old MonkeyUrine.

Despair of the Cheese: Is this one of those times where it's so hipster that it gets popular and then stops being hipster because it's popular and creates a veritable Moebius strip of hipster? I'm so confused.


Well, it is kinda confusing with Hipsterism because it does rotate in what they think is good and not good based on it's popularity, as opposed to basing their decisions upon sensible factors such as "personal preference", "value", and "quality". For the low end inexpensive beers, I think PBR is a status symbol beer so the Hipsters will always make sure to have a can or bottle of it nearby them at a bar to show off how "working class" their Trust Fund asses are; alternatively Miller High Life is the opposite end for those who want to pretend to be "different" and "independent" by contributing profits to a large corporate London based company called SABMiller.
 
2013-12-03 01:43:30 AM
Does it really matter whether it's a douchey hipster beer or smelly redneck beer? Both groups are total idiots with absolutely no taste, which is why they drink PBR in the first place. Nobody who religiously drinks PBR is in any way interesting or intelligent.
 
2013-12-03 01:44:25 AM
All beer is shiat. There. I said it. You are only debating the color, alcohol and stink intensity of piss water. It's only worth drinking if the water is impure.

If you're under 35 and drink it, you're a hipster. If you're over 35 and drink it, you're white trash.

A tell tale sign if the bar was a redneck bar or a hipster bar....if the PBR sign was brand new, it was a hipster bar, and I steered clear.  If it was old and worn down, it was a redneck bar, and I steered clear.

Really, any place advertising PBR was a s tell tale sign to stay away, tbh.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: If you're under 35 and drink it, you're a hipster. If you're over 35 and drink it, you're white trash.


Pretty sure I was white trash when I was drinking it 20 years ago.

/there's a grandfather clause printed on the bottom of each can. True fact.

Because People in power are Stupid: IPA... Ballantine was into it before you heard of it.


PBR cans, Ballantine cans and Lucky Lager 11 ounce bottles with the picture puzzles inside the caps bought with change because we were poor and desperate, not because they were in any way palatable. They are all crimes against humanity.

/Taka, White Wolf and Burton's vodka too.

I drink it regularly, because it's cheap and cold and does the trick, just like yer mom.
 
2013-12-03 03:20:50 AM
I don't care if it's a hipster or redneck beer.  I like it because it's cheap and doesn't taste half bad.  And I liked it before all this stuff about it being a hipster beer.

Hmm...  Guess that makes me a hipster.
 
2013-12-03 03:21:17 AM
And I miss Lucky lager, and the Oly stubbies too.  Used to have a coffee can filled with the rebus caps.

Ages ago when we 1st started Drinking with a Fake ID, PBR was one we started with. There were no "Craft" beers or "Light" beers yet then. You had PBR, Miller, Schaeffer, Schlitz, National Boh around here and Then you had the "Cheap" beers. There didn't seem to be all that many choices then. Wines were Boone's Farm and Yago Sangria unless you bought the normal "Table" wines. None of us cared much for the really Hard stuff though at times we tried it. I would really guess that what you wind up drinking all the time is pretty much the same as where you wind up getting your coffee all the time. I used to stop every AM at a 7-11 on the way to work and I got used to their coffee. Later they built a Royal Farm Store right up the street from work so I started going there. Later I got moved to another location and for years drank Dunkin' Donuts coffee. You get used to one thing and nothing else tastes the same or as good to you. I've never had a Starbucks and don't know what Latte or all that other stuff is. As far as beer goes, I've been drinking nothing but Coors Light now for something like 30+ years now. Once upon a time you couldn't even get that brand here and you rarely heard of it. It was a big deal when it first arrived here. It's like anything else. I always drink Pepsi at home and only get Coke when I don't have a choice. You drink whatever you get used to and that's it.

I bought a case of PBR in 1982 in an act of pure hipsterism. It was ironic over 30 years ago. I remember it because I still use the box as a toolbox, which is a completely old-school thing to do. PBR is a paradox.
