A cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer day is one of those seasonal moments that I look forward to all year. When you’re in the mood for an iced tea but could also go for a cocktail, look no further than the new Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Tea Peach.
Yep, PBR has released an alcoholic peach iced tea drink, and it sounds like the adult beverage you’re going to want to sip on all summer long.
According to Untappd, this new drink blends bold black tea and natural peach flavor for “a refreshing and satisfying brew.” It has 4% ABV and 100 calories per can.
Further details on the drink are scarce, but it already has 63 ratings on Untappd, with taste testers giving it an average of 3.17 out of 5 stars. Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Tea Peach is not yet listed on the PBR web site, so it may be a while before you see it on store shelves. Hopefully, it’s available far and wide by the time summer is in full swing!
Last year, PBR introduced another fun novelty adult beverage — Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Coffee, a spiked coffee drink with 5% ABV. It’s made with rich, creamy milk and vanilla flavor. It sounds like a delicious alternative to a mimosa for a weekend brunch cocktail!
The canned drink started rolling out nationally earlier this year, according to this Instagram post from @pabstblueribbon, and may now be available at a store near you.

PBR also got in on the hard seltzer trend with the introduction of PBR Stronger Seltzer. It has an 8% ABV, making it a bit stronger than its competitors, which clock in around 4-5.5% ABV. The Stevia-sweetened beverage has just one gram of sugar per 16-ounce can, and it’s lime-flavored.
Here’s the Instagram post from @pabstblueribbon announcing the product last year:

Strong struts. Stronger Seltzer. Our limited release will include Texas, Arizona, California and Montana. Don’t live in those states? Tag a friend you know who does. It’s a good way to let them know you’ll be coming into town. And that you’re making a date to grab some of our 8% ABV Stronger Seltzer. ð
“Stronger seltzer explores new ground for the blue ribbon while upholding the boundary-pushing tradition that’s been associated with us since the days of our founder Jacob Best,” John Newhouse, brand manager at Pabst Blue Ribbon, said in a statement. “Strong Seltzer is a fun and innovative new drink that delivers big on taste, and gives our customers something different to enjoy.”
Looks like Pabst Blue Ribbon is trying to get a lock on our alcoholic beverage options for the coming seasons! If they’re going to keep releasing tasty products like these, we’re okay with that.
