Anheuser-Busch announced yesterday that the production of Rolling Rock will move from it's original home in Latrobe to the A-B Plant in Newark (nj.com).

If I were still drinking, there would be a backlash. This is a sad day for a great beer......

That's the plant right off Rt 1 near the airport, right? How is it there any 'fresh' water in that area?

Well, that does it for me with Rolling Rock. I am not as big a drinker as I used to be, but I loved me some Rolling Rock. But fresh water in Newark, NJ? Nope, not me. Onto another beer. I am thinking Red Stripe now. I have enjoyed it the few times I have had it and i love the commercials: HOORAY BEER!

If nothing else, I'm hoping AB's purchase of Rolling Rock might mean they'll start selling it up here. I also love me some of the 33, but driving down to Montana just to get a case or two is getting tiring!

That's the exact transition I've made. Me loves some of the Stripe now.

Many years ago, Mrs. Dirt and I visited the area, mostly to attend a steeple chase. What a beautiful part of the world. Just visiting was enough to make you drink the beer. What a shame. I think if I were a smart brewer, I would find a way to take over the brewery there.

Never thought I'd hear the phrases "New Jersey" and "fresh water" in the same sentence.

Bums me out.

First they discontinue the pony bottles, thus making Friday nights at the Skeller a little less fun (you could buy cases of ponies for $22, I think), and now they're moving from Latrobe. I have friends who live near there, and it's like a historic place to them. Wonder what'll happen to the town itself.

The workers at the brewery just agreed to a modified contract with City Brewing of LaCrosse, WI. Assuming all goes well during due diligence, City Brewing will begin "takeover" proceedings of the facilities in 30 days or so.
