When old becomes new…

Isn’t if funny when something which has been around for quite some suddenly become new and hip to the in crowd?

Pabst Blue Ribbon is one of those things. The hipsters have brought it back into vogue and everyone is drinking it. They have renamed it PBR for short and a favorite way to drink it is called a PomBR which is pomegranate juice and PBR. First thought is eww but it actually works out !

A PomBR and a How do you Q?  are enjoying the patio at The Borough (Raleigh, NC) on the corner of Dawson and Morgan Street!

Meanwhile, in the garden the daylilies are still going strong with the wild, orange blooms everywhere! I have a ton of these in the garden.

  1. I had no idea about PBR! good to know! Beautiful flowers. I cant/won’t grow day lillies because of a bad experience with them. It wasn’t their fault, so I shouldn’t hold a grudge, but my mother, during her Chinese phase, cooked tiger lillies, and I can almost gag at the thought of what they felt and tasted like. ugh. And that was over 40 years ago…

  3. How funny about PBR. I still remember going on a tour of the brewery in Milwaukee, WI as a Girl Scout. At the end of the tour, adults got a beer and we got orange soda. LOL. Gorgeous day lilies!

  5. But are they drinking the PBR ironically? And is it possible to be ironically intoxicated?
