Whiskey by, uh, PBR
Denver was the first city in the country to get a taste of Pabst Blue Ribbon’s new whiskey when the brewer recently debuted the brand at a recent party at the ReCreative Denver art gallery on Santa Fe, according to The Denver Post. Bottles will go for $25.99 when bottles of the new whiskey, which is aged for just five seconds, begin showing up at retailers later this month, though they could vary depending on the retailer.
Why five seconds of aging? According to Esquire, PBR originally wanted to sell an unaged whiskey but the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau said the brewery would need to market it is a moonshine. The brewery didn't want to do that and so decided to age the whiskey in a barrel for five seconds in order to comply with regulations requiring whiskey to be aged in wood but not stipulating for how long.
