WTF!!! PBR $44???

And you thought $6 for a 12-pack was too expensive. You’d have to spend a good portion of your paycheck to get drunk off of PBR if you lived in China.

In America it’s called PBR and is the blue-collar/hipster beverage of choice. In China it’s called Pabst Blue Ribbon 1844 and will run you $44 a bottle!!!!

Why 1844? It's the year the original brewery was founded. Is it a new recipe? Or is Pabst Blue Ribbon just re-bottling it's same old crappy self, in the hopes the Chinese are suckers for a decent advertising campaign? The latter, I hope

Kinda crazy to think that a beer like this can go for such a steep price but I don’t think I’d spend more than $4 for a PBR. And that price is still a real stretch.
