Pabst Brewing Company, originally called Best Brewing, was founded in Wisconsin in 1844. Steamboat captain Frederick Pabst married into the family and got involved in 1864. While known for its 'Blue Ribbon' brand (and related collectibles), Pabst's early brands included Export, Bavarian, Bohemian, Hoffbrau and Standard. Another 1880s brand, called Select, had blue ribbons tied around the bottle neck and became wildly successful.
