Pabst Brewing Co., is to close its last brewery on Friday to concentrate on selling beer brands produced by other brewers.

A report by Dow Jones claims that Pabst will in future be a marketing company with around 200 employees.

The company informed nearly 380 workers of its intentions to close the brewery in July blaming stiff competition in an industry dominated by Anheuser-Busch, Miller Brewing Co. and Adolph Coors Co.

According to the report Miller Brewing Co., which, already produces 80% of Pabst's brands intends to take over all of Pabst brewing by increasing production by approximately 2.4m barrels.

Pabst sold 10.8m barrels of beer in 2000, compared with 99.2m barrels sold by Anheuser-Busch, 42.5m barrels by Miller and 22.9m by Adolph Coors Co.

Pabst brands include Old Milwaukee, Schlitz and Stroh's.
