For several years King Street dive Recovery Room sat in second place for Pabst Blue Ribbon can sales, but today they can finally boast that they sell more PBR 12-ouncers than any other establishment in the world. Congrats, Charleston — you chug a ridiculous amount of cheap, hipster beer cans.

City Paper has an extensive article from 2013 on why/how bar owner Chris "Boston" DiMattia goes through so much PBR, including DiMattia's take on the brew:

This is beer. It is what it is," DiMattia says. "They're not gonna give you an ad with a bunch of hot chicks dancing on a beach. You're not gonna get laid drinking this beer, but you're gonna get drunk ... you know, if you have about 15 of them.
