Pabst reports volume increase.

Pabst Brewing Co. reported a 6 percent volume increase in 1992 over 1991, representing 7.1 million barrels, the company said.

In addition to the strong domestic performance, Pabst had a 13 percent volume gain in export sales over the same period, with large increases in the Hong Kong-Macao region.

Also, overseas brewing operations have expanded through Pabst's joint venture with the City of Zhaoqing, in the People's Republic of China, where 500,000 barrels were brewed in 1992. The brewing venture is expected to reach 1.7 million barrels by 1994, making it the largest single brewing facility in the PRC.

Further expansion this year will include similar joint ventures in Shanghai and Thailand representing an additional 2.8 million barrels. In Canada, Pabst has licensed Lakeport Brewing Co. to brew Pabst Blue Ribbon, of which some 300,000 cases are expected to be sold this year.
