1. n. The only beer that makes you feel as though you're looking the devil straight in the face upon cracking open the first can of the evening. It is a little-known fact that in the play "Faust", Mephistopheles is, in fact, summoned by the protagonist's opening of a can of Pabst.
Excessive consumption of Pabst Blue Ribbon, can, in fact, lead to a hedonistic and sanctimonious mental state known as "the Pabst state" (see below).
Example sentence: "Let's get wasted on Pabst Blue Ribbon and kill some strippers!"
2. adj. Pabst. (folk-etymology, back-formation of past-participial form of the (non-existent) verb "to Pabs") Pertaining to the resultant mental state of having consumed too much Pabst Blue Ribbon. People in the Pabst state often find themselves involved in the following activities (seemingly without being able to provide an explanation, no less):
-Passing out in ditches
-Drinking said beer in abandoned buildings and graveyards
-Hitting on unattractive members of the opposite sex
-Dancing and (consequently) vomiting (often at the same time)
-Getting into arguments about who found that hot new underground indie-rock band first
-Not doing laundry
-Making inappropriate cellphone calls at 3 in the morning (see drunk-dial)
-Writing long-winded definitions for the word "Pabst" on urbandictionary.com
Example sentence: "Dude, I'm totally Pabst right now."
Here is a dialogue from the 1986 film "Blue Velet" exemplifying the Pabst Blue Ribbon Mentality (note: Frank Booth is played by Dennis Hopper):
Frank Booth: What kind of beer do you like to drink, neighbor?
Jeffrey Beaumont: Heineken.
Frank Booth: Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!
