We now have six more reasons to place PBR at the top of the grocery list.

For context, we challenged six of our favorite guys known for creating obscenely delicious eats, and asked them to create some more obscenely delicious eats using the golden good stuff PBR--just because we can, and just because we should. (Ask not what PBR can do for you, but what you can do for PBR, right? Something like that.)

Needless to say, our guys delivered, and consequently, history has been made. After all, we're talking about some of the best. Tym "McBurger Chips" Bussanich. Sushi-making legend Davy Devaux. The Vulgar Fucking Chef, for cheddar's sake.

PBR pretzel bites, sushi, bacon mac, PABST BLUE REUBEN--this is what happens when you mix fire with fire. You might as well just consider and accept these as your grocery list. Here are six reasons why you need to restock your fridge with PBR immediately:

Tym Bussanich's genius idea of combining steak marinated in PBR with green peppers, onions, and melted American cheese, all within the cracks of a warm loaf of bread (I like to think of these as sandwich fries). Happiness is just a finger away, y'all.

This recipe from the Simple Cooking Channel is the ultimate comfort food after a long day wherever: PBR. Bacon. Mac. Cheese. All can be united so effortlessly, it's almost too good too be true. That's the joy of Simple Cooking.

An entire sandwich, dunked and fried in PBR batter, and graced with a punderfully appropriate title. We'd be lost without this treasure from Dude Foods.

For many of us, it's difficult enough making basic sushi. Davy of Make Sushi not only recreated the PBR logo in this PBR-battered roll, but to do so, he imagined the first ever naturally blue rice by using ultra rare butterfly pea flower tea.

The idea of PBR in a PBR can is nice. The idea of PBR Cheddar Nuggets in a PBR can is also nice. Vulgar Chef's taking things to a whole new level with these cheddar nuggets fried in PBR batter, which he keenly serves in their own can along with a creamy bacon cheese sauce for dunkin'. Dipping cheese into more cheese--that's what America's all about.

Cheesy, salty, and a lil' spicy--said it before and I'll say it again, these are the perfect anytime anywhere snack. Seeing a movie tonight? Maybe you pop into your kitchen for a bit beforehand. Maybe you make a couple batches... a couple dozen batches. Maybe you discreetly tuck 'em into your pockets/purse/mouth and sneak 'em into the theater with you for a lil' snack during the show. Maybe you just had the best movie experience EVER.
