D.C. and Pabst Blue Ribbon: A Hundred Years of Love

This is the beer you’ll see dominating bars like Solly’s, Red Palace or Wonderland. So this short “Old Ads and Classifieds” post is for them. Pabst was a much larger brewery in the early 1900s and this is an ad from the Washington Times in 1903. So, in honor of what’s probably going to go down in these bars tonight, here it is.

I’m sorry, but this is not a good beer. Give me a DC Brau any day. I love our local D.C. brewery.
