STROH ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH USTR DECISION

 STROH ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH USTR DECISION
 DETROIT, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Stroh Brewery Company today


announced it is extremely pleased with the decision of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to consider the imposition of punitive tariffs on imports of Canadian-brewed beer and other alcoholic beverages if the Canadian federal and provincial governments do not revise internal practices found to discriminate against the sale of U.S.-brewed beer in Canada.
 During the past 2 1/2 years, Stroh and the G. Heileman Brewing Company have sought the elimination of restrictive and unfair trading practices maintained by the Canadian provincial liquor boards regarding the importation, distribution and sale of U.S.-brewed beer. Stroh, and other similarly situated U.S. brewers, have endeavored to "level the playing field" and obtain fair and non-discriminatory access to the Canadian market for their products.
 "The recent USTR action represents a substantial and significant step in the direction of free and fair trade," said Stroh Assistant General Counsel Geoffrey Walker. "With the support of U.S. law and two favorable internationally recognized GATT Panel Rulings, the USTR re-emphasized the serious nature of maintaining discriminatory trading practices.
 "We hope that Canada will finally realize the ramifications of maintaining these unfair trade practices and eliminate them immediately," Walker added.
