Old Milwaukee is a brand of American dry lager produced by the Pabst Brewing Company. Old Milwaukee was first brewed in 1890 and reintroduced in 1955 as a value priced beer by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. In 1982, the Schlitz Brewing Company and the Old Milwaukee brand were acquired by Stroh Brewery Company of Detroit. In 2000, Stroh's and all of its beer brands and recipes were acquired by Pabst Brewing, which included the Old Milwaukee brand. All Old Milwaukee products have won top honors at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. Over the past 10 years, Old Milwaukee Light has won more awards than any other light beer in America.
