 ALL S&P-OWNED BREWERIES, PABST, PEARL, FALSTAFF AND GENERAL,
 CONVERTED TO 100 PERCENT RECYCLABLE SIX-PACKS
 MILWAUKEE, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The first group of breweries in the country to totally adopt new environmentally responsible packaging was announced by Lutz E. Issleib, chairman of S&P Co.
 The new, easy-to-open, EZO Hi-Cone six-pack carrier features handy pull-down tabs that break the cans free. When discarded, the non-toxic package is photodegradable and 100 percent recyclable. Additionally, the break-away rings reduce risk to animals of being entangled, which was a major concern with previous packaging.
 Issleib reports this important ecological contribution involves several million packages a year that will not become a potential problem. The popular brands with this feature are Pabst Blue Ribbon, Hamm's, Olympia and Olde English 800 from Pabst Brewing; Ballantine, Haffenreffer, Falstaff and Narragansett from Falstaff Brewing; Pearl, Country Club and Texas Pride from Pearl Brewing and Lucky Lager from General Brewing -- all owned by the environmentally responsible S&P Co.
