CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago's iconic workingman's brew will continue to have a place at Wrigley Field.
Old Style-maker Pabst Brewing Co. and the Chicago Cubs announced Wednesday that the brew that has been available to fans since 1950 will be peddled at the Wrigley Field through 2013.
Pabst threatened earlier this year to pull the beer from the ballpark. According to a published report, billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos fired off a memo to senior staffers shortly after he bought Pabst last year that he wanted to "exit the Cubs deal" in favor of spending more to market Old Style Light.
On Wednesday, Metropoulos said it was important for Pabst to continue the tradition of Cubs fans drinking Old Style at Wrigley Field. The brew is part of the ballpark's lore.
