Mr. Rogers, Arnold Palmer and Rolling Rock...

The question that accompanied this old trivia answer is "name the three most famous things from Latrobe, PA." Rolling Rock was synonymous with Latrobe, PA -- ask your dad or your grandfather. However, in May 2006 the brewery was sold and the good old "33" will no longer be brewed in Latrobe. Take a guess at which brewing powerhouse flexed its muscles and shut down the brewery. Good guess, Anheuser Busch.

As a follow-up, I saw the new post Superbowl Rolling Rock ad yesterday. You could tell it was a Bud ad. The sadest part was seeing the following text at the bottom "Latrobe Brewing Company, St. Louis, Missouri.

I am going to guess that Rolling Rock has been banned in a number of Latrobe bars.
