The agreement between MillerCoors and Pabst expires in 2020 but provides for two possible five-year extensions. The companies disagreed on how the extensions were negotiated: MillerCoors argued that it had sole discretion to determine whether it could continue to work for Pabst, while Pabst said the companies had to work "in good faith" to find a solution if Pabst wanted to extend the agreement but MillerCoors lacked capacity.
