In 2010, Pabst Brewing Company launched its first product in decades called Blast by Colt 45. A premium fruit-flavored malt beverage, Blast comes in four delicious flavors: Strawberry Watermelon, Raspberry Lemonade, Blueberry Pomegranate, and the most recent addition, Fruit Punch, which was introduced in 2012.
Established in 1848 by Jacob Best, the Pabst Brewing Company is home to popular brands such as Colt 45, Old Milwaukee, and Schlitz. In 1892, the company purchased nearly one million feet of silk ribbon, which workers tied by hand around each bottle of Best Select Beer, and soon thereafter Pabst Blue Ribbon was born. Today, under ownership of the Metropoulos family, Pabst Blue Ribbon continues to be one of the fastest growing consumer brands in the country.
