Aug 6, 2021
by Handup Gloves  

Press release: Handup Gloves

Camaraderie has been at the forefront of our minds since the inception of the brand. For us, that means good times with others, on and off the bike. Pabst Blue Ribbon has been the center of our post-ride parking lot cheers more times than we can count so, we thought it was a match made in heaven to link with them and outfit some rad folks in a complete PBR round-up of gear. You can now rep a classic American cold-one company via Handup Summer Gloves, Most Days Gloves, Button up Jerseys, Standard Jerseys, Socks, bandannas and even a Coozie!



The full HANDUP x Pabst Blue Ribbon collection can be found HERE.

 @Trudeez: Yep and it was Pabst who killed the Olympia brand just this year! Following beer acquisitions is worse than bike companies.....Pabst owned OE 800 in the 90s and I bought some merch at their Tumwater gift shop along with a giant Oly patch.

"Owned by Pabst Brewing Company and part of the brewery’s portfolio of legacy brands, Olympia Beer has not been brewed in its hometown since 2003. Olympia Beer got its start in 1896 when Leopold Schmidt founded the brewery in Tumwater along the banks of the Deschutes River. Through the years the brewery grew and expanded from its original location that is currently being restored to a new, larger facility that is easily seen along Interstate 5.

In the 1980s the brewery was sold to G. Heileman Brewing Co. and then a decade later to the Stroh Brewery Co. in 1996. In 1999, Pabst Brewing Co. purchased many of the brands under the Stroh Brewing Co. portfolio that included Olympia Beer. But the brewery itself ended up in the hands of Miller Brewing Co. where it brewed Olympia in Tumwater until closing the brewery down in 2003. Most recently, Olympia Beer has been contract brewed by Molson Coors in Irwindale, California, a brewery that just recently changed hands and is now owned by Pabst Brewing Co."

 @suspended-flesh: rumor is that they're going to re-brand Oly as a super premium vodka la-la Belvedere/Ciroc etc. They now own the "Its The Water" phrase and apparently that's something they can successfully market. Sad day as Oly was definitely my favorite cheap canned beer.

 I am holding out until Colt45 Malt liquor has some merch to buy! If I am going to represent disgusting beer, I need to get a full buzz in minimal time and a hangover to match! At the best possible price! Plus the Billie Dee Williams commercials are so great. "It works every time!"

 Sweet, I was looking for something more obnoxious than a Primal Jersey.

 Worst beer in the world is Double Brown. I am actually ashamed that the shittest beer in the world is made here. More ashamed that people actually pay money to drink the shittest beer in the world. Totally f*cking ashamed and embarrassed that people I know knowlingly and willingly pay money to buy and drink the shittest of shit beers in the world. More so that it's a 4% beer.

When's the Woodstock Bourbon & Cola riding kit coming out? (New Zealand/Australia in joke).

Also. I like PBR. It does not taste like Double Brown or any other generic NZ rugby beer.

 Saw a guy riding yesterday in a Woody kit... Trakky dax and a footy jersey that is. Brand new fox gloves with no poofy helmet of course, and a pack o' Winnie blues in his back pocket.

 At least if DB brought out riding kit you'd get to look like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix.

 I can’t imagine being this salty that other people drink different beer then you, also rumor has it, Wild Buck beer is actually PBR.

 @ReubenSandwich: rider of the year right there. I'd prefer a VB riding kit to go with my ute and flannel shirt collection. Yeah VB's Aussie but someone in NZ discontinued the NZ version for the shittest reason(s).

RIP DB Bitter.

 @commental: tatty old jersey Matrix or slo-mo flowing leather trenchcoat Matrix?

 @streetkvnt-kvlt: Leather trenchcoat obviously, what could possibly go wrong?
  • 1 0
 @commental: maybe it's the Southern Hemisphere air but I ain't seeing any connection between DB and leather trenchcoat Matrix Keanu. I reckon a proper DB riding kit would be a Swanndri, stubbies and jandals with socks.

 @streetkvnt-kvlt: Admittedly it was a while ago that I'd last seen it before I dug it up.

 @commental: haha I remember that one. The ad was at least more entertaining than drinking an averagely average tasting 4% lager.

 Only a brand like handup could fail to deliver on a PBR collab…. Everything Is an eyesore despite PBR’s classic color scheme and logos, which they failed to incorporate

 PBR f'n sucks but Handup make the only gloves that have lasted me longer than 2 weeks. Give credit where it's due! Just because you're old and boring doesn't mean you have to hate on styles you don't like. Smile

 Being a true northwesterner it’s Rainier or Henry Weinhard Private Reserve. Toured the Oly plant back in the 80’s as a kid (my dad’s beer choice).

 Would be a good idea to include close up video of the gloves either at the end of the video or separately. Assuming they're good quality of course LOL.

 No that's Coors. Panther piss to be exact.

 Hey. NOJZILLA…….Dang, you know what piss tastes like? From golden showers or did you just decide to try it independent of an erotic persuasion?

 @Tigergoosebumps: tastes like American beers.....

 @nojzilla: America makes some of the best beer, wine, and buds in the world and a load of watered-down garbo too. Sometimes you just want to power down 5 light beers without the sledgehammering of a real ale.

 I love it! Even better, my dad used to work for a Pabst distributor when I was a little grom in 1970, so is nostalgic for me as well. #beerme

 PBR tastes way better than bud, coors, and Miller lite. And about the same price. It’s a practical choice. Having one right now Beer ! Big Grin

 @jpwvy5: I wrote that comment then immediately thought of like 100 beers that are far inferior to pabst lol. I think CA people just get spoiled with options

 It's just as bad when people who *think* they know good beer call it crap....it is what it is, simple, light and cheap nothing wrong with that....time and a place for it...just like a fancy micro....when I get done after a long day of riding nothing much better than a cold PBR or coors/bud/miller/Kokanee. When I'm out having some good food or and in the mood I'll order a nicer micro....for those in-between times, either one works....

 @RadBartTaylor: that's true, wasn't trying to say it wasn't good, personally I don't like it but it also seemed to be more of a fashion/social trend than anything with so many clothing brands etc. mimicking their logo for one off designs.

 @TotalAmateur: For sure, I guess it depends on WHY.....the hipster crowd here in hipster central USA (Portland) won't drink anything BUT PBR it seems...kinda silly
