COORS ENDS NEGOTIATIONS TO SELL TRANSPORTATION COMPANY

 COORS ENDS NEGOTIATIONS TO SELL TRANSPORTATION COMPANY
 GOLDEN, Colo., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Coors Brewing Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Adolph Coors Co. (ACCOB) (NASDAQ: ACCOB), announced today that negotiations with J.B. Hunt Transport Inc. (JBHT) to sell its Coors Transportation Co. subsidiary have ended.
 The two parties could not reach a mutually satisfactory agreement on the sale of substantially all the assets and operations of Coors Transportation Co. to J.B. Hunt and decided to end their discussions. As a result, Coors Brewing Co. will continue operation of its transportation unit and resume its search for a potential buyer.
 The decision to sell Coors Transportation is part of an overall effort to sharpen Coors Brewing Co.'s focus on the brewing business and the competitive challenges of the beer industry, according to the Chief Executive Officer Peter H. Coors. Most of the business of the refrigerated-trucking operation comes from outside the brewery. The company currently has 225 employees, including 25 at the company's headquarters in Denver.
 No price for the proposed sale was released.
