Listen, PBR is trash, but it’s proud trash, and when there’s nothing left to drink at the end of a night, PBR does the trick. It is the perfect drink for when you are too drunk to care! Or at least it was back in our house party days before we stopped getting drunk enough for PBR to even be an option. Now we just fall asleep in our pants, wearing our contact lenses while watching Cobra Kai. (Yes, my New Year’s Eve was fine. How was yours?)
Fun fact: Seth still drinks PBR but puts that chile-lime pepper from Trader Joe’s in it, and it’s … not bad. Also, not good!
Anyway, the person running the PBR social media account is not ashamed of what their beer is. They own it, and if your Twitter account is going to mirror your brand, well, this tweet makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
This is a real tweet from the real social media account for PBR, and it wasn’t tweeted by a hacker or an intern who took over the account. It has been deleted, but that hasn’t stopped their social media person from acknowledging the tweet and enjoying the attention:

If you look at the rest of their social media, the tweet was consistent with their past activity, which is fine. I mean, they’re probably the official drink of Barstool Sports, but at least they own who they are.
