Pabst Owner Metropoulos Says He May Make More Beer Acquisitions

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- 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.
