It is clear that Missoula loves beer. It is obvious that one of Missoula's favorite beers is good ol' Pabst Blue Ribbon. In fact, Missoula's Orange Street Food Farm is the home of the highest retail PBR sales in the country. That's right, they sell more PBR at Orange Street Food Farm than anywhere else in the US. But, do you think Missoula's PBR fans can put down 1,776 beers?

To commemorate the birth of our nation, the people at Pabst have decided to unveil a 1,776 pack of PBR. That is 74 cases of beer or equivalent to 10.5 kegs.

According to Food and Wine

"We figured the best way to honor the year America claimed its independence was to make a box that held that many beers -- 1,776. It's the least we could do," Nick Reely, PBR's VP of marketing, joked in the announcement. "Actually 1,776 is the most we could do because 1,777 seemed excessive."

As good as one of these giant packs of beer would look in the back of a Missoulian's pickup, they are not for sale. Only 4 of these 1,776 packs were made.

According to Food and Wine

PBR has given one each to four different partners: the beer chilling specialists at Igloo Coolers, skateboarding podcast crew The Nine Club, comedian Ali Macofsky, and the Michigan emo band Hot Mulligan.

These 4 teams will have until Labor Day to finish the giant pack of beer. Which sounds like a challenge any of us would be willing to take on these hot summer days. But, dry your eyes, as PBR also announced that the infamous 99 packs of PBR are hitting stores now. Just in time for your 4th of July celebrations.
