Rolling Rock shuts down

The curtain came down Wednesday on Rolling Rock -- at least as an independent boutique brewer.

The 67-year-old Latrobe, PA, brewery recently purchased by industry giant Annheuser-Busch is in the process of being closed. A-B plans to move manufacturing to another site.

Union workers on Sunday approved a contract offered to them by City Brewing of Wisconsin, which plans to begin brewing beer and sports drinks at the plant by January.

The iconic brewery, which was known for its green-bottled beer, also produced a commemorative bottle to be given to employees.
