Pabst Brewing Co. owner considering purchase of Hostess?

By

Bloomberg is reporting tonight that C. Dean Metropoulos & Co., an Irving, Texas private equity firm that owns Pabst Brewing Co., has expressed an interest in purchasing Hostess, which today announced plans to liquidate, eliminating around 18,000 jobs.

Twinkies and beer? Sounds good — financially speaking, that is.
