There's an old country tune with lyrics, "Red necks, White socks and Blue ribbon beer."  😈

Now it's " Red plaid shirts, Birkenstocks and blue ribbon beer". West Coast hipsters love the stuff for some reason.

LOL there is a long list of things the West Coast hipsters love but if I list them I will never be able to log in here again! Roll Tide!

A friend of mine once commented to me that PBR "tastes like goat piss." I asked him why in heaven's name would he drink goat piss anyway? :rolleyes:

Growing up in Milwaukee, you were either in the Pabst camp, or the Schlitz camp.  A few would go for Blatz but I don't know anyone back then who admitted to drinking Miller (and my dad grew up within walking distance of the Miller brewery in the Valley).

Then they had their "budget" lines and the "Red White and Blue" vs "Old Mil" battles, neither of which were all that drinkable, but did fill the bill at UW for $1 pitcher night.  Back then the cool kids came back from skiing in Colo with Coors in the trunk.  Didn't know then that "Coors Light" is redundant.

I agree!! ALTHOUGH The American Craft beer industry is very much vibrant and of high quality. Better than I have found in my European travels. Not a criticism as thee are great German beers in Austria. 😉 .

Sure, but it seems like all I see anymore are IPAs.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!   I'm an American who has spent much time in the UK, so I'm not even going to try and argue that point!  I've never been able to drink "like a Brit" or any other nationality where toddlers are weened on pints!  My belly just won't handle it!  But the taste?  Excellent!

This is mostly true.

When I first got to Germany, I decided, "hey, I'll go in this little bar across from the train station, and have a beer"

So I started ordering dunkles bier ... and hey, I'll have another bitte.   I read the newspaper, as best I could (my German wasn't good) and after about an hour or so, when I got up to leave....WHOA...my weight and balance was off, to say the least.

Some American beers like Bud Light are swill-water...just awful.  Budweiser is good though.

Notice how, in the spirit of the forum rules, I tied my post to aviation, comparing my physical state to the weight and balance of an airplane.

Good stuff! Had a couple at the Hotel in Vienna or Wein. A couple Weihenstephan Hefeweisen's also. A few beers from Brewers who have been in business 100 of years before America was a country.🙂

 LOL I can remember being pretty happy to get a cold PBR or schlitz over in SEA even if they were in rusty cans that had been stored out in the rain. No Alum cans back then.

I grew up in MKE in the 50s and we had epic beer parties - Schlitz, Pabst, Miller, Blatz, Fox Head 400, Waukesha Weber, Brew 92, Hielaman's and God knows how many others. We drank a bunch of Hamm's as well. 12oz long necks were 35 cents! When I went to England the first time in the 70's I fell in love with Bitter and then real ale! One time I spent the entire night drinking those mega steins in the big beer parlor in Munich. Walked outside into the sunlight bleary eyed. So glad those days are distant memories! This Jerry Lee song hits home!

I'd ask how they knew what goat word not allowed tastes like.

So an admin can use the word word not allowed, but the rest of us cannot?  OMG... seriously? LMAO

Ok, I thought PBR might be that fancy new texture technique, but ok, it's the PBR I grew up with.  I've had PBR in the past, not impressed.  I agree with Matthew Kane, most American beers are like canoes, very near water, and PBR is no different.  There are a lot of really good American craft and micro-brew beers available, but my favorite for a relatively cheap beer is Yuengling Traditional Lager.  Yuengling is now America's oldest family owned brewery, so I'm still supporting "local" business.

Back when I was in college and was working in a Winn-Dixie supermarket, we sold tons of Red,White & Blue Beer as well as Goebel Beer.  Red, White & Blue was a product of PBR and it was their economy beer.  The stuff did not smell good, tasted bad, best to drink it ice cold so the cold would numb your taste buds.  The color of it as it was going into you and then coming out of you later on was about the same.  Goebel was also a very cheap beer, but was a little better tasting than Red, White & Blue.

Agreed - the beer scene in the US has changed drastically in the last decade or so.  While mass produced "American" beer is still generally awful, there's so much good craft beer out there that I don't why anyone would drink the other swill.

Perhaps I'm spoiled, but the craft beer available in Colorado (which IS admittedly a craft beer meca) goes WAY beyond just IPAs.

As for PBR's reprieve, there are dive bars all over Chicago sighing in relief.

Wow! Even I did not realize that. Sometimes I think the "filter" is just a bit too tight, as that particular word has many different meanings among the world's English speakers, many of which aren't in any way objectionable...

That was actually what I meant to imply with my question. How did he gain his comparison experience?

Smutty Nose Old Brown Dog Ale from New Hampshire is a true American Ale if you can find it.

This guy covers the history of American Beer very well. Also the joke I made above comes from Monty Python as shown in this video but I took the sex part out of it as it includes the F-Bomb
