The Captain

I suppose that if I'm going to show you Pabst photos, I had better include one of the Captain. Frederick Pabst was a captain of a steamship on Lake Michigan when he met Jacob Best and his daughter. Long story short, Pabst married into the Best family, began to work in the family brewing business, and eventually grew Pabst into the largest brewer in the world. This statue of him is on display at Best Place.

He reminds me of the 'Colonel' of KFC! ;)

Sorry, I don't think we get Pabst beer (?) here unless it's marketed under a different brand name.
