Rolling Rock Latrobe Brewery makes last shipment

July 29 - The last bottle of Rolling Rock brewed in Latrobe, PA rolled off the loading docks today. Anheuser-Busch recently bought the brand for $82 million from SABMiller, but they didn't buy the brewery, and will brew the beer in Newark, New Jersey. So 70 years of history comes to an end. All may not be lost, however. A Wisconsin company is negotiating to buy it and make other brands of beer. This is how Celis died. They were bought by a big company. Their brewery was closed, and brewing moved to another plant. Then they were gone. So long, Rolling Rock. We'll miss you!

Hey,

I wonder if Yuengling might be interested. They have all kinds of production issues. It would be nice to see another PA beer brewed there.

A-B bought Rolling Rock from InBev, not from SABMiller.
