As it continues to launch new products, including boozy cold brew, white whiskey, strong seltzers and new Captain Pabst-branded beers, Pabst Blue Ribbon is releasing a 100-calorie, peach-flavored hard tea this summer.
The sparkling tea beverage has 4 percent ABV and 3 grams of sugar, and is brewed with real tea leaves.
The Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Tea is now available in 26 states, including Wisconsin, and you can order it online in six-pack cans here.
At the same link, you can buy a wide variety of Pabst products that may be new to you.
The rumor mill has also been buzzing with the idea that Pabst might also be tinkering with other spirits, too, in addition to the whiskey it released last year. Stay tuned!
