[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he notable cheap beer brand branched out into the caffeinated market a few years ago, uniting beer lovers and coffee lovers. Pabst Blue Ribbon, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, makes a rich booze-infused hard coffee. Stand aside hard seltzers, PBR hard coffee is the only spiked beverage you need.
New Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Coffee
According to the brand, the Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Coffee features Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, creamy American milk and a touch of great-tasting vanilla flavor. The product clocks in a 5% alcohol by volume (abv), giving you that caffeinated buzz you can't get from other alcoholic beverages. Pabst spoke with Food and Wine, sharing that the fun drink will taste like a "vanilla infused premium iced coffee with a 5 percent ABV kick". It's almost as if Yoo-Hoo chocolate milk, a Starbucks Frappuccino, and a bottle of booze had a baby.
"Pabst Blue Ribbon has always been a brand that pushes boundaries and celebrates those who experiment and try new things," said John Newhouse, brand manager for Pabst Brewing Company. "Hard Coffee is an opportunity for us to pioneer a delicious and fun new drink, and give America something unique."
