Brewery Company, an Arizona corporation ("Stroh"). In connection with a proposed

agree as follows:

     1.   Pabst hereby agrees to assume and agree to carry out and perform such
of  Stroh's obligations under the Production Agreement as Boston Beer may
request, subject to the Sale and Closure provisions of Section 4 of the
Production Agreement, excepting only such obligations of Stroh under the
Production Agreement that, by their specific terms, apply only to Stroh.

     2.   Miller hereby guarantees to Boston Beer the performance by Pabst in
all material respects of the obligations assumed by Pabst under the Production
Agreement and agrees to assume and perform such obligations if so requested by
Boston Beer.

     3.   In specific reliance on the foregoing representations, warranties and
covenants of Pabst and Miller, Boston Beer hereby consents to the assignment of
Stroh's obligations under the Production Agreement by Stroh to Pabst and,
conditionally, to Miller and agrees that each of Pabst and Miller is a
"Permitted Assignee."
