Cheap, domestic beer plays an important role within American drinking culture. There are few things in life more enjoyable than indulging in a delicious, ice-cold snack that takes the edge off without breaking the bank — but toeing the line between cost-effective and tasteful presents quite the conundrum. Fortunately, Pabst Blue Ribbon has it figured it out.

PBR is crisp enough to register as legitimate beer, and you can drink it from sunrise to sunrise without getting tired of the taste or feeling weighed down. It’s like that reliable car you want to drive until the odometer breaks. Holding none of the complications of a dark stout or an IPA, PBR is beer epitomized, and it doesn’t try to be anything else. Whether you choose the 12 oz. cans or the 16 oz. tall boy, picking one up is about to get a lot cooler.

For 10-straight years, Pabst Blue Ribbon has run an Art Can Contest that gives emerging artists from all over the world an opportunity to have their original artwork featured on cans and win a cash prize. To commemorate the contest’s milestone tenth edition, America’s favorite lager upped the ante by increasing this year’s prize money tenfold to $100,000 and awarding 10 winning artists $10,000 each.

How to vote:

PBR received 7,000 entries this year and just announced the Top 25 finalists for the ongoing contest. Pabst Blue Ribbon has also enlisted the help of four reputable community judges to weigh in on the winning design. These include current Art Can Contest winner Ashley Dreyfus, 2019 Art Can Contest winner Tenbeete Solomon aka Trap Bob, Talenthouse artist Andy Arrangoiz, and Art Director at Juxtapoz Magazine, Rosemary Pinkham.

More than 18 cities are represented in the contest, in which fans are able to interact and cast their votes for their 10 favorite designs. Now is your chance to make your voice heard and vote for your favorite! Fan voting will run from February 2-18 with the final ten artists’ winning designs announced on February 23, 2022.
