City Brewing Looks for Government Help to Retool Former Rolling Rock Plant
City Brewing, which earlier this year acquired the Latrobe, Pa., brewery that used to make Rolling Rock, is getting help from the Latrobe Municipal Authority to apply for more than $7 million in state grants and loans.
City Brewing would use the funding to build a new wastewater treatment plant at the brewery. The company says it needs the new treatment plant to handle increased volume at the brewery and because the plant will also make different types of beverages.
City Brewing is based in LaCrosse, Wisc., in the former Heileman Brewing plant. The company's brands include City Lager, City Light and La Crosse Lager. It also makes ice tea, energy drinks and malternatives.
