Twinkies And PBR Together? A Deal May Be Near By Kelsey Proud • Jan 29, 2013 TweetShareGoogle+Email (via Flickr/sekimura) The announcement from Hostess that it would be shutting down three of its bakeries (St. Louis, Seattle and Cincinnati) and then, shutting down as a company entirely, evoked a "Twinkie panic." Now, Quartz and the Wall Street Journal report that it seems the owner of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer is nearing a deal to acquire the Twinkie brand, along with those of other Hostess snacks. Whether you decide to enjoy the two items together is up to you.
