Broke-Ass Porn: The Pabst Blue Ribbon Factory

Once a week we present Broke-Ass Porn.  It’s visually stimulating material for the financially impaired.  If this shit doesn’t get you going, you’re not as broke as you thought:

This my friends is where Two Dollar dreams are made.

PBR is not the best beer in the world.  It might not even be the best beer for the buck.  But you and I both know it’s always been there for you.  When The Thirst hits you and all you’ve got is the change you were supposed to use for laundry, which is the beer that’s always whispered, “Hey pal, me and my buddies here really wanna be inside your belly.  Why don’t you bring us home with you.  You’ll get more of us for your quarters than any of the other fuckers here in this corner store fridge.”

Pabst won it’s famous “Blue Ribbon” at the impressive Chicago World’s Fair over a century ago and I have a feeling it tastes pretty similar today to the way it did back then.  America’s taste buds have just become snobbier since then.  But you don’t have snobby taste buds do you?  No, you can’t afford to, and half the time it’s not worth it anyways.

So please, look at the photo above and give it a salute.  That place has been getting hipsters laid since the 19th century.  And if all this sounds like complete and total nonsensical babble, you’ll have to excuse me.  I drank too many PBRs last night.

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".

    Pabst has some strange memories for me, it was the featured beer at my grandfather’s bar, one of the thousands of bars in the nation with the title “Hill Top Inn”. It was the cheap working man’s beer in a cheap working man’s world.

    I used to work construction in Kentucky and Indiana, lived on this stuff, thanks Stu.

    they are turning the darker building into condos, so now you can really get laid there in the comfort of your own bed.

    pbr is brewed at the miller plant a few miles away. they don’t own the brand, they just brew it. some dude bought pbr for his kids to run.

    i hate pabst but i grew up in milwaukee which is why i know this stuff.
