But what is your favorite brand of beer? I know this is a screwy question. The newspaper article in yesterdays paper talked about the resurrection of the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer company. It was as good as dead a few years ago, being overshadowed by Bud, Coors, and Miller. The younger crowd in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco have brought it back, and the company has resurged.
The beer has been described as "good ol' plain beer". The company spend only $427,000 for advertising, mainly ads, and local promotions. Unlike the giants who spend $300 million just to advertise, like at the superbowl and big events.
There is supposed to be a rebellion, the article stated, against the "naked girls and fast car" ads Budweiser uses.
Plus the fact that PBR is about $1.50 per drink opposed to almost double that at the local pub for the "brand names".
I don't think I ever had one, as my favorite are the craft beers, like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
