Say it isn`t so. This is Steelers beer, this is my beer. I hope the workers don`t lose their jobs , but I wouldn`t think that it looks good.


Rolling Rock Brand Sold, Local Jobs Could Be Lost


Hundreds of local jobs are hanging in the balance after the Rolling Rock brand was sold for $82 million to the Anheuser-Busch Company. The brand will still be produced, but not by Latrobe Brewery.

I'm not big on Rolling Rock, taste like watered down perfume in my opinion. But sad to hear it won't be in Latrobe anymore.

AB will keep the company going, I think. As long as they keep the Green Light flowing, I'm good.

Meanwhile, executives have yet to find a buyer for "the new Coke."

Damn!!

I hope things work out for Rolling Rock.
Rolling Rock Beer is a small piece of Americana and iconic for Latrobe and Western Pa.
