Trouble is brewing, nation.
Stephen Colbert has learned that Pabst Blue Ribbon, Old Milwaukee, Schlitz and Colt 45 are all being sold to a Russian brewing company, and he is understandably outraged. PBR is a beer that's enjoyed by both your grandfather and hipsters trying to look like your grandfather, but, with the sale, the future of the brew is somewhat uncertain. Colbert refers to Pabst as the "quintessential" American beer and is calling on the nation to "defend our PBR."
Defend it, but don't necessarily drink it.
