According to a story behind a pay wall in AdAge (some of the AdAge info repeated in a follow-up story in FoodDive), MC is dropping these eleven brands. Milwaukee's Best Premium (not Ice or Light) Mickey's Ice Hamm's Special Light Keystone Ice Keylightful (whatever that is) Icehouse Edge Magnum Miller High Life Light Steel Reserve 211 Old English HG 800 Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve Does Pabst (which has also been dropping or otherwise losing brands over the past few decades after buying most of the Heileman-Stroh portfolio in 1999) need some discount brands to fill up capacity of the former Miller brewery in Irwindale CA and the 3 City breweries? (Do they have the money to buy them?) Is Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve, where ever it's sold these days (PNW - all of the west coast?), really an "economy" brand currently? It was one of the handful of Heileman/Stroh brands that Miller (not Pabst) bought in '99 and they even had some HW brands contract-brewed by Full Sail for a time to keep it a (partially) Oregon-brewed brand. MC has been using the Henry Weinhard brand for a number of products, including grape and orange hard soda. Coincidentally, two other former Wessinger (Fred and Minott - great and great-great grandsons of Henry Weinhard) linked brands are in the list - Old English* and Steel Reserve 211 - the later from their McKenzie River Corp. era. In the 1990s, McKenzie River Corp. was among the Top Ten US breweries (around the same size as BBC during that decade) with an estimate barrelage of ½ - 1 million, mostly (all?) contract-brewed by Stroh/Heileman. * Well, likely the standard Old English 800 probably will remain, only the 8% HG is being dropped.
