Food / drink 🍗 PBR me ASAP


Pabst Blue Ribbon. Hamm's. Grain Belt. Rhinelander. Old Style. The list goes on. You can find a tavern in just about any crossroads in Wisconsin. Just about all of them served some beer you can't (and maybe don't want to) find anymore. Every one of those taverns advertised their beer with a projecting backlit sign. Not many of those left. Am I getting nostalgic for bad beer and roadside clutter? The days when the drinking age in Illinois was 21 and it was 18 in Wisconsin? There must be a few of these icons out there. Show me you signs!
