    I think the patch affixed to the helmet answers that question: I love it. That is what is special about it.

    Wow. A rating of 4.

    I suppose it matters less when dispensed through a beer-bong?

    Maybe it is more satisfying on the way back up?

    I wouldn't drink a PBR with a gun to my head. Life's too short to drink crappy beer.

    Come to Wisconsin, you'd be surprised at the multitude of situations you find yourself in that very closely resemble the one you just described

    I simply can't help it - I just have poor taste in beer. All my ale-drinking buddies chide me, but I've tried everything else and the cheap lagers are what I like best (although I really don't like Budweiser - go figure).

    It's not something that typically happens on purpose, like getting caught in quicksand. Most people who live here unwittingly wandered here from surrounding states. Luckily, we have managed to survive with a few basic necessities

    Pabst is the best cheap American mass-produced domestic beer, which is a bit like saying you can whisper the loudest.

    Checked out the beer site; I'm in trouble!

    Been away from the beer scene WAAAAAY too long -- the only listed beer I recognized was Samuel Adams, not a brand I like (my sister does, though).

    But I can say I won't drink domestic...Heineken, Molson Ice, Mannheimer Export have all pleased me. Curious about Guinness, but it's not in the budget.

    Stay away from japanese beer, though -- lost a perfectly good gourmet Asian meal that way....

    I've had a few over the years.

    However, one of the best beers that I ever had was an MGD after a ride in surisan, south korea.

    Mass produced American beer generally sucks, but it does have its place.

    Unless you're talking only about the macro-breweries, you're missing out on some great beer. The best beers I've ever had have been American micro breweries.

    You've clearly never been to college. PBR is rich stuff here.

    For mass produced, I prefer Sam Adams or Yeungling, esp their light. Only 99 calories.

    Micro-brews, I like Natty Greene's, a local brew from Greensboro, NC, and Highland Gaelic Ale from Asheville.

    Imports are all over the place, but lately I am really enjoying New Castle on tap. Rich brown goodness

And you're proud of this?

    You can drink a half gallon of garbage, get a buzz, pee like crazy, and wind up with a nasty hangover in the morning, or you can drink half as much stout or IPA, actually have some flavor in your beer to enjoy, not have to pee unstoppably, and feel slightly groggy in the morning, all for within a buck or two of the same cost.

    Even the Pabsts don't drink that crap.

    Whats the point of drinking if you don't black out? just a college student's perspective and PBR is amazing since usually my only other choices are keystone light and busch light. Altho I do drink micro-brews for the taste occasionally that is usually perceived as a waste of money. (quantity>quality)

    Those basic necessities keep me going back...I'd add the WORS series and South Kettle moraine for riding.

    I'm a FIB, but find myself frequently visiting.

    It's all marketing.

    I remember when Corona became so popular...I was in that age. The price shot up due to the fad and never fell back. It's not very good beer either...

    Then later PBR, then Red stripe.

    There is no real bad beer, but there are lots of not as good beers.

    Seems people want to associate themselves with a beer for some odd reason. PBR really hit that... It is like having a Harley Davidson but a lot cheaper. Following the crowd but seeming different.

    Wow never in my life have I seen such strong opinions about another's choice of beers. I am a micro brew drinker for taste but an cheap beer drinker for the buzz. That being said I had my 1st Pabst ever recently after a race, a local team is sponsored by them and hands them out to all who are legal to enjoy. Wow that is a great beer post hard ride.

    Now there's a healthy attitude about alcohol consumption.

    Well of course WE (collective voice of the internet) know what's best for you (happy go lucky poster)....once everyone gets in line, Gore's real reason for creating the internet will be fulfilled...until that time, enjoy PBR, Corona (if you can gag it down), Black Label, Mamba, etc in mass quantities.

    Give me a good Belgian any day!

    Am I the only one who likes storm king after a ride? Or if I'm in the mood for something a little lighter, Old Chubb.
