Crescent Distributing sold to Miller Brewing.

Crescent Distributing Co., a privately-held beer distributorship located in Harahan, LA, will be sold to Miller Brewing Co., an official with the wholesaler announced.

Although terms not disclosed, distributorship president Stanley Scott said he has agreed to sell the business for health reasons. Scott is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments for cancer.

Miller president Leonard Goldstein said the distributorship will continue regular operations under new ownership. "We regret the unfortunate circumstances of his situation and wish to thank Stan for contributions to Miller Brewing Company."

Scott thanked Goldstein, Miller Brewing Co. and the citizens of New Orleans for the outstanding support he has received in his tenure at Crescent. Formerly assistant to the chairman and vice president of corporate affairs with Philip Morris Cos., Inc., Scott purchased the distributorship from Miller in April, 1988.
