    sorry dude, but I stay away from all those communist hippie microbrews.

    I would rather settle back with a six pack of pabst blue ribbon rather than blow my night by trying a 22 of Sunshine Forestshades rosebud nutmeg amber brown summertime red haze ale.

    suit yourself, but one stone beer at 9% alcohol by volume will get you as drunk as 4 or 5 blue ribbons, and it tastes good too.

    pabst blue ribbon is shit beer, by brewing law, its not even beer.

    ok, here we go:


    beer is made up of four basic ingredients: fermentable sugars (normally from malted barley), hops, water and yeast. there are a bunch of other additives and adjuncts that can be put in beer to affect smell, taste, color and/or mouth feel, however, the above four ingredients are essential for making good beer.



    now the reason that the blue ribbon, is not really beer, is because insted of barley, corn is used (this is called an adjunct) witch greatly affects the amount of alcohol, the taste, the smell, and the overall quality. If beer was made like this in the late 1890's/early 1900's in germany it would have been against the law to produce.


    and and extra fact:

    its called blue ribbon because it won a blue ribbon at the world fair sometime around 1880, but that was when it was still made with quality products insted of piss poor excuse for brewing barley.

    i think pabst is between 4%-5% alcohol by volume, here is how you ca find the abv% of a beer if you know some of the brewing numbers( this wont do much good if your trying it with cheap beer, because this numbers are not listed on the bottle). this is the formula all most all brewers use to get the abv% for a beer.

    this is going to be like a forein language to alot of you.



    say the brewer crafted a high-alcohol beer. the original gravity measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a final gravity measurement of 1.011. Simply subtract the FG from the OG and multiply by 131.

    1.080 - 1.011 = 0.069 x 131 = 9.039%

    so we've got a 9 percent alcohol by volume beer.

    alot of your higher quality beers will list these numbers on the bottle if the abv% isnt already there.

    the highest abv beer iv ever had is a unibrou bottle fermented beer, that checked in at about 11%, but i belive sam adams had one running for a while that was somthing like 18%

    the only reason i was asking to explain was because nobody could tell me what the alchohol content of my beer was when i was south of the border. its just fun to know, because the beer is so cheap and its fun do do a comparison when its drinky time.

    unghhhh, na na na naaaaa
