Sure PBR is an inexpensive beer, but it isn’t just for crushing during game day. Pabst Blue Ribbon is a super refreshing light beer and can be paired with some sophisticated foods to enhance the flavors and the experience of eating rich foods.
Take cheese for example. Have you tried Camembert with PBR? Probably not! This soft, creamy cheese can have a stronger more pungent aroma than Brie and pairs perfectly with the light clean taste of PBR. Next time you have friends over, create a cheese plate that features Camembert and serve PBR to pair with it! Your friends will love it!
Having guests over inevitably means serving snacks and appetizers along with drinks. This is where budget-friendly PBR shines! Pair a tall-boy with some classy snacks to elevate the entire experience. Try goat-cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates. They are super easy to make and will wow your guests. The super rich snacks beg to be paired with a super light refreshing drink, and what’s better than an ice-cold PBR?
