Ann Arbor Book History: “Hold my beer,” 1875.
The Michigan Argus revealed tricks of the trade for preserving books,
one of which involved beer.
Books and brews have always made a great combination .
(note: the closest i’ve come to this is when spilling a beer on a book
and unsure if it actually helped to preserve it)
“books and beer are the best and worst defense.”

Pabst Blue Ribbon latest offering
ensures plenty of beer to pass round
Last year, Pabst Blue Ribbon offered its gigantic 1776 beer offering. While the powers that be thought that 1776 was just the right number last year, it appears that 2022 has the iconic beer brand going bigger, jumping right to the 1844 pack.
According to Nick Reely, Vice President of Marketing – Pabst Blue Ribbon, this summer’s offering is all about going bigger, basically one upping themselves. “That was really the genesis of the 1844 pack; 68 more beers than our original big box, while also paying homage to our heritage and founding year and trying to lend a hand to our consumers across the country. While that number is brewed in history, not everyone will be able to get their hands on this special offering. Only 250 of the special packs have been made and it’s unclear where they can be purchased.
But, if you do happen to find this, there is a big question to ponder.
Who will you share all the beer with?
happy 4th of july!
