A court blocked the sale of Pabst Brewing.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati upheld a preliminary injunction barring the proposed $63-million sale of Pabst to G. Heileman Brewing Co. until an antitrust challenge to the deal has been tried. The sale is being challenged in U.S. District Court in Detroit by Stroh Brewing Co. and Christian Schmidt Brewing Co. The appeals court said there was enough evidence to merit a trial, scheduled for March 28 in Detroit.
