PABST NO. 1 U.S. BEER IN CHINA BUILDS NATIONS LARGEST BREWERY

 Milwaukee, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pabst Brewing Co. started third phase expansion of its huge brewery facilities in Zhaoqing, China, which began brewing famous Pabst Blue Ribbon in 1989 -- the first U.S. beer to be produced in China.
 Lutz E. Issleib, chairman, announced details of the unique joint venture, the first of its kind whereby the people of the City of Zhaoqing, in China's southern province of Guandong, joined with Pabst to reconstruct dismantled U.S, breweries from Vancouver, Wash., Omaha, Neb., and Fort Wayne, Ind.
 Current production 80,000 tons will expand to 120,000 by the end of this year and to 320,000 tons, or 2.7 million barrels by the third quarter of 1994. Upon completion, this will be the largest single brewing operation in the People's Republic of China. Pabst Blue Ribbon is the No. 1 U.S. brand in the nation of 1 billion people.
