Pabst Blue Ribbon... quality vs. quantity Question for Beer Drinkers

jrvedivici | Jan 29, 2014 10:12 AM

Let me preface my question with the fact I am NOT a beer drinker. On average I probably drink 10 beers a year and that would be after doing yard work during the summer, nothing quenches a good thirst like an ice cold beer. But that's really it, other than that I don't drink beer. Not since high school which was 25 years ago.

So the point of my post is this......I was recently at a new restaurant called Brickhouse (here in NJ) and they have a happy hour special of a can of Pabst Blue Ribon for $1.00. per can. I was so amazed by this, I haven't seen a $1.00 beer anywhere in 20+ years so as a novelty I ordered one to wash down my food once it came. I had a martini and a beer chaser. (don't judge me lol) The funny thing too about the restaurant they serve the can in a small paper bag, to hide it's identity I assume? Anyway when I tasted the Pabst I was surprised that it seemed "ok". I was expecting a rather vile, bitter or really shitty tasting beer, but it wasn't. I won't say it was the best beer I've ever had but it certainly wasn't hideous. (to my novice beer taste buds)

So my question is.....for $1.00 a can is Pabst Blue Ribbon a good deal, or is no price a good deal for that beer?
