Iron City Beer Moves Brewery Out Of Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The last kegs of Iron City Beer will roll off a production line at a Pittsburgh brewery as the operation moves about 40 miles east of the city to the former Rolling Rock brewery in Latrobe.

Iron City has been brewed in the city since 1861 and at the current location since 1866.

Iron City Brewing Co. also brews IC Light and Augustiner Amber Lager.

Friday's shutdown doesn't completely sever the company's ties with Pittsburgh.

The company's corporate headquarters will remain in Pittsburgh. The brewery in Latrobe is near St. Vincent College, where the Pittsburgh Steelers hold training camp each year. That brewery started producing Iron City's beers earlier this week.
