US: City Brewery gets Rolling Rock state cash
The state of Pennsylvania has pledged investment to help reopen the former Rolling Rock brewery in Latrobe.
The brewery, which was sold by InBev to City Brewery last September for an undisclosed amount, has attracted grants and loans of around US$4.5m from the Department of Community and Economic Development.
The investment includes grants of up to $2.9m through the Infrastructure and Facilities Improvement Program, a $500,000 opportunity grant, a $400,000 loan through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority, $250,000 in training funds and $500,000 in job creation tax credits.
"City Brewing Company is very appreciative of all the assistance and support received from Governor (Edward) Rendell and the Governor's Action Team, as well as all the assistance of the local officials and the entire community," said City Brewing's COO Kenn Yartz yesterday (24 January).
"We value the hard work everyone has put forth in helping City Brewing put this historic brewery back in production. It is our belief that we will bring a new era of beer and beverage co-packing production to Latrobe and Western Pennsylvania."
The company is the country's fifth-largest brewer and it packages beer under contract for the likes of Boston Beer Co. and Sleeman Breweries.
