Cheap local beer plays an important role in American drinking culture. There are few things in life more enjoyable than indulging in a delicious, relieving frozen snack without breaking the bank – but distinguishing between cost-effectiveness and great taste presents quite a headache. Fortunately, Pabst Blue Ribbon has understood this.

PBR is crisp enough to be registered as a 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. Containing none of the complications of a black stout or an IPA, PBR is beer personified, and it doesn’t try to be anything else. Whether you choose the 12 oz. cans or the 16 oz. big boy, picking one up is about to get a whole lot cooler.

For 10 consecutive years, Pabst Blue Ribbon has run an Art Can competition that gives emerging artists around the world the opportunity to see their original artwork featured on cans and win a cash prize. To commemorate the contest’s landmark tenth edition, America’s favorite lager upped the ante by raising this year’s prize money tenfold to $100,000 and rewarding 10 winning artists with $10,000 each.

How to vote:

PBR received 7,000 registrations this year and just announced the 25 finalists of the Top 25 for the current competition. Pabst Blue Ribbon also brought in four esteemed judges from the community to weigh in on the winning design. These include current Art Can contest winner Ashley Dreyfus, 2019 Art Can contest winner Tenbeetee Solomon aka Trap Bob, Talenthouse artist Andy Arrangoiz and Juxtapoz Magazine Art Director Rosemary Pinkham .

More than 18 cities are represented in the competition, in which fans can interact and vote for their 10 favorite designs. Now is your chance to make your voice heard and vote for your favorite! Fan voting will take place from February 2 to 18, and the winning designs from the final ten artists will be announced on February 23, 2022.
