BREWNZ ANNOUNCES DATES OF EVENT 21st- 25th May 2002 – Wellington, NZ

WHY LION MUST FIGHT FOR MONTANA The bitter struggle for control of Montana is just warming up. Lion Nathan has been thoroughly outflanked by its arch-rival, Foster's Group, and cannot afford to lose its grip on New Zealand's largest wine company. The loss of control would be a psychological blow to Lion and a big setback to its diversification plans. It would also condemn the group to a permanent second position in the Australasian brewing stakes.
