Next May or so, Matt Keasey will be able to take his foot off the proverbial brake.

That’s when Keasey will no longer need to ration how much of his Spring House Brewing beer he sells to his wholesale distributors.

By then, Spring House Brewing’s new city brewery and brew pub will be operational, replacing a smaller brewery in Conestoga.

“It’s difficult,” said Keasey, the founder, brewmaster and co-owner.

Pottstown Micro-Biz Hopes To ‘Distill’ Formula For Success

POTTSTOWN, PA — Pennsylvania’s fledgling craft distillery industry owes a debt of gratitude to America’s micro-brew movement and nobody knows it better than Max Pfeffer.

The director of operations for the Manatawny Still Works and its chief distiller, Pfeffer didn’t have to go far to find his new job.

It was a short hop to go from craft-brewing to craft-distilling for the chemical engineer.

After being educated in brewing at a special school at the University of California at Davis, Pfeffer “went right into beer,” and spent three years at Victory Brewing, followed by three years as brew master at Sly Fox Brewing Co., located directly across the street from the Circle of Progress location of the new distillery.

Duquesne Beer Production Restarted At City Brewing In Latrobe

A legendary Pennsylvania beer began production in Latrobe last month. 

Duquesne Beer was formerly brewed on Pittsburgh’s South Side.  It was Pennsylvania’s top-selling beer in the 1950’s.  Referred to as the “Prince of Pilsner”, this beer was brewed from 1899 until 1972 when production was halted.  Now an Upper St. Clair man has relaunched the brand. 

City Brewing in Latrobe started making Iron City Beer last year when the Pittsburgh Brewing Company closed their Lawrenceville plant.  Duquesne Beer can be added to production using the same number of workers.  The Latrobe plant employs 110 people.  

The Latrobe Brewery is the former location where Rolling Rock beer was brewed from 1939 until 2006 when Anheuser-Busch moved Rolling Rock production to New Jersey.  Anheuser-Busch announced it was considering selling the Rolling Rock brand in 2009! 

Allentown Beverage has ordered Duquesne Beer for local distribution and you can expect to be able to purchase the “Prince of Pilsner’ in the Lehigh Valley by this weekend.  A case will run about $16.00. 

Glad to see another Pennsylvania brand coming back to life
