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!

“seasons pursuing each other,
the indescribable crowd is gathered,
it is the fourth of the seventh-month,
what salutes of cannon and other small arms!”
The designer of our current 50-star flag was Robert Heft. It was 1958 and there was some talk that Alaska and Hawaii were going to officially become states 49 and 50. One of his high school teachers capitalized on the current events of the day and had his students design a new flag incorporating the two new states. Inspired by Betsy Ross, (and cutting up his parents’ flag), Heft did just that, arranging the stars so it wasn’t very evident that he had added any. His teacher gave him a B-, saying that the design was unoriginal. When Heft balked at the grade, his teacher told him that if he could get the flag adopted by Congress, he would bump the grade up to an A. Heft jumped at the opportunity, sent the flag to his congressman, and after a long campaign and a refusal to give up, he ended up getting the flag approved. Heft got his ‘A’ as promised. Since then, Heft’s original homemade flag has flown over every single state capitol building, over 88 U.S. embassies, and over the White House for five administrations. He is now deceased, but has left behind a design with 51 stars ready to go if the need arises.
happy 4th of july!

what better way to celebrate the day than walking all together
the local merchants
the roller derby team
the pedal bikers
the musicians with a cause
the snow buddies
and so many, many, more.

“you have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks and soldiers who file by the white house in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy and the flies die from happiness. you may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
happy birthday u.s.a!
