It only seems logical that PBR would pay people for drinking its "blue-ribbon" brew.

For the third year, the trademark hipster libation is hosting the PB-Arts contest, a chance for folks to show the beer, and its marketing department, some love (oh yeah, and win $1,893).

On Jan. 24, the Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta Village will display 2008’s winning entries. (Judging from last year's finalists, the competition ain't too stiff.) Artists will also be able to submit their photographs, paintings, sculpture and poetry for the 2009 contest. The deadline for this year's competition is Jan. 31. The winner gets a year’s supply of beer (yes, PBR) as well as the above-mentioned $1,893 (the year Pabst won its blue bibbon).
