Pabst licenses beer to Canadian brewer.

Pabst Brewing Co. reached a licensing agreement allowing Pabst Blue Ribbon beer to be produced by Lakeport Brewing Corp., in Hamilton, Ontario, for Canadian distribution.

The beer was released in 370 Brewers Retail Stores throughout Ontario in mid-December, Pabst officials reported.

Lakeport Brewing is housed in a newly modernized facility that formerly held Amstel Breweries Canada Ltd. The plant has a current 4.5-million case capacity, the brewer said.

"We are delighted with the opportunity to work with a feisty, new and unconventional brewery like Lakeport," commented Pabst chairman Lutz Issleib. "This venture is another step to strengthening the already strong financial position of Pabst Brewing Co. in the United States."

The agreement is the second international venture for Pabst. The company already has an agreement with the People's Republic of China to produce Pabst Blue Ribbon beer at a plant in Zhaoqing.
