    Mesparo’s is one of the most popular restaurants in New Orleans. They only serve two beers on draft, Abita Amber (a N.O. fave) and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Not really sure why, just thought it was interesting.

    On the topic of barleywines, try Andy Gator by Abita. It is excellent!! Full body and great with raw oysters. I have only ever had it on draft in restaurants (Acme Oyster House and Brennan’s, both of N.O.).

    I’m no movie geek, but, I seem to remember some little movie called,”Blue Velvet”, well, I don’t really remember it, but I do remember a line from Dennis Hopper, and it was pretty apropos, “What are you boys drinkin’, Heineken, fuck that shit, Pabst Blue Ribbon”, yeah, it’s been a few years, but still, I think that says enough! I know it’s not verbatim, but it’s close enough. What do I know, I have ashtrays with bowling balls and pins, that’s some kitschy shit!

    I couldn’t agree more with your entire last paragraph. And seriously, I’ve NEVER seen anything really that shows me Pabst is for the “hipster” crowd(maybe cuz i’ve never been to their site or seen ads 😛 ), although the Jim Mahfood(AZ native and awesome comic artist/writer) Colt45 art cans are frickin’ awesome. Anyways, if its good, its good, and if its bad, then its bad. To each his own. Just glad we live in a country where we are allowed such a freedom of choice! and c’mon, as far as PBR goes, they painted cans olive drab green and sent them to troops during WWII! That alone gets them props in my book! — CHEERS!
