Pabst Owner Metropoulos Says He May Make More Beer Acquisitions

Pabst Brewing Co. owner C. Dean Metropoulos said he will look to make more beer acquisitions, in part to take advantage of the growing craft market.

“It’s a good time right now for financing,” Metropoulos said today during a presentation at the Beer Industry Summit hosted by Beer Business Daily in San Diego.

Metropoulos, who with his sons purchased Pabst in 2010 for about $250 million, said there are a number of interesting craft brands he may consider, without naming any.

The company may expand into cider, Metropoulos’s son and co-owner, Evan Metropoulos, also said.
