It’s not beer – but it is a coffee , milk and vanilla blend with a 5% ABV malt liquor kick.
Made from Arabica and Robusta coffee beans and “American milk,” the iced coffee boasts 5% alcohol by volume and 30 milligrams of caffeine per 11-ounce can. For now, PBR Hard Coffee is available in limited supply in Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey, Florida and Georgia, the company tweeted.
With 5 percent ABV , Pabst said that the drink is “among the first of its kind in the industry,” combining Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, milk, and malt beverage to create a boozy version of your morning cup of joe.
However, a representative has confirmed to Thrillist that it’s now available almost everywhere in the US. You’re going to find it on shelves in 48 states and the District of Columbia. The two states still waiting for their turn are North Carolina and New Mexico.
For reference, a 12 ounce can of a caffeinated soft drink typically contains 30 to 40 milligrams of caffeine , an 8-ounce cup of green or black tea 30 -50 milligrams , and an 8-ounce cup of coffee closer to 80 to 100 milligrams . Caffeine in energy drinks can range from 40-250 mg per 8 fluid ounces.
