PowerMaster, the new malt liquor whose high-alcohol content has brought complaints from black community leaders, is making its way to Baltimore-area liquor stores this week.The malt liquor, which is packaged in a black, 12-ounce can with silver and white letters and a sketch of a blazing red horse, has come under criticism from national and local black leaders because of its higher-than-average malt-alcohol content and its intended consumers -- lower-income inner-city blacks.PowerMaster, which sells for about $18 a case, or about $5 for a six-pack, contains 5.9 percent alcohol.

They met last year on the set of the Oprah Winfrey show, the dapper Morgan State University educator and the angry rap artist whose lyrics echo with the sound of the street.That meeting, between rapper Ice Cube and Morgan's Dr. Spencer Holland, helped fund a project that has touched the lives of dozens of young black boys in Baltimore's inner city.

The Stroh Brewery Co. announced yesterday that it has completed its acquisition of the hobbling G. Heileman Brewing Co. in an estimated $290 million merger that will give the combined company control over about 10 percent of the U.S. beer market.The deal, announced in February, is expected to reinforce Stroh's position as the nation's No. 4 beer maker in a flat industry, giving the Detroit-based company a broader portfolio of national and regional brand-name beers, and what it hopes is an opportunity to cut costs and expand its distribution network and international sales.
