It’s fitting, we suppose, that at a time the Bills reportedly are trying to extend the window for selling beer at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the latest potential buyer of the franchise owns a brewery.

According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, Pabst Brewing Company owner C. Dean Metropoulos could make a run at buying the team.

“The Metropoulos family has a continued interest in acquiring an NFL franchise and expects to review any such opportunity,” a spokesman said.

Metropoulos tried to buy the Jaguars in 2008.  Three years later, Wayne Weaver sold the team to Shad Khan.  Last year, Metropoulos revived the Twinkie, purchasing the snack cake division of Hostess through the bankruptcy process.

Several potential buyers of the Bills have been identified via reports, and through their own public comments.  The process could move quickly, with the overriding concern of the fan base being that the new owner won’t move the team.
