Iron City brewery goes out with a flood
The last days of a Pittsburgh-area brewery have been plagued by a flood that idled bottling at the plant with workers Tuesday scrubbing out the last of the mud.
Bottling is expected to start up against Wednesday at Iron City Brewing Co. in Lawrenceville, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. The company said the flooding did not affect brewing.
The basement bottle shop was under about 12 feet of water after a storm last week. Iron City officials said a water line to the pasteurization machine also broke from a landslide during the storm.
The plant has now brewed its last batch of beer.
