Pabst won the blue ribbon
 
So I was giving a buddy of mine a hard time for stocking up on PBR for his 30th birthday party. He responded by saying something about "I don't see any of your favorite microbrews with a blue ribbons from the worlds fair". What do I say to that?

you say "well um....But I'm a beer snob."
Quit giving your buddy crap. PBR is a great summertime lawn mower beer.
This isn't the Beeradvocate forum over here:D

Read "Ambitious Brew."

Pabst didn't actually win the blue ribbon that they use for their namesake! The "contest" wasn't supposed to be a "contest" but Pabst declared himself the winner anyways!

Double +1 to this!!!! PBR and Strohs are my go-to camping/fishing/campfire brews!

The Pabst of 110 years ago ain't what he's buying.

What world's fair? There hasn't been an actual expo called "world's fair" since the 80's.

It was the 1939 worlds fair i beleive...In Chicago.

I don't really mind PBR. I think there is a time and a place for it though. It isn't a beer that I'm going to drink one of at night, but if I'm going camping or fishing with some buddies a case of PBR isn't a bad thing.

It won that ribbon in 1893, hasnt won a blue ribbon at a worlds fair since. it did get gold at the GABF in 2006, but no blue ribbons.
