A colleague of mine today heard from an industry insider that the new buyer of the Latrobe Brewery may be D.G. Yuengling & Son Brewery of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Yuengling is the sixth largest brewer in the United States, having greatly increased their sales over the last several years. They also recently purchased the old Stroh’s Brewery in Tampa, Florida and built an additional facility in their hometown of Pottsville. By all accounts this expansion has been wonderful for their business and would give them both sufficient cash and the motivation to purchase another brewery to service the western part of the state and perhaps even expand into Ohio and West Virginia. So the rumor makes a lot of sense but only time will tell if it’s true or not.
