Okay, over the years I have pumped up the virtues of Iron City Beer... Well, truth be known, it's been 15 years since my last Iron City but back then I knew I liked it so...

...I'm in Total Wine and there in the select beer area is Iron City Beer so I picked up a 6 pack and guess what???

Still a great beer!!!

There was a time when the standard order in a Pittsburgh-area bar was an Imp 'n Arn -- a shot of Hiram Imperial and an Iron City.

As for Rolling Rock, they were bought out by Anheuser-Busch. The beer is no longer made in Latrobe but in New Jersey.

Let's hope this never happens to Iron City...

When I bought one, I couldn't pour the beer out of the can. When I did it was pure sludge.   Which river do they take it out of?

I think they truck it in from from the junction of the Allegheny and the Monongahela, capturing thereby the "essence" of each.

I've actually drunk Iron City, right there in Pittsburgh. More than once. Neither did much for me, except the Iron City made me...ill. Just looking at it, I mean. The greasy foam, the little bits of stuff floating in the beer, the sludge at the bottom....

I have an (unopened) can of Olde Frothingslosh, the Pale Stale Ale with the Foam on the Bottom. Pittsburgh Brewing Company (Iron City Brewery's name before 2007) produced this up into the mid-1970s as their holiday beer. I expect it's toxic waste by now (even more than it was in the first place, I mean).

Olde Frothingslosh was an invention of Rege Cordic, the morning man on KDKA radio. His fake ads for it became so popular that each Christmas for many years Iron City sold its beer in cans much like the one Art shows above.

Does anyone know if they still make Utica Club? I've noticed that the same company that made UC is now handling a couple of micro-brews, Brooklyn and Saranac. UC was what people in Utica drank when I was in college and old enough to drink. It's part of my youth, and I'd hate to think it's gone. Genesee, the other beer from western NY is still available.

Utica Club seems to be thriving


The real issue is...Iron City and Utica Club and Budweiser and such are all of the same basic type of beer.....fairly cheap for those who drink for 'effect', no particular distinctive flavor, and need to be pretty cold to be palatable- which makes them popular for BBQs and quenching thirst on a hot Summer day. Fine, if that's your goal.

Some prefer to explore classic beer & ale with widely different flavors & strengths. (yeah..like me) (and I don't LIKE beer which needs to be cold enough to numb the taste bud so you can stand to drink it.)

It is interesting that at one time, the makers of Sam Adams contracted with the Pittsburgh Brewing Company to have their beer brewed there. I forget the exact year(s) and the exact reason(s), but it was plainly stated on the Sam Adams label.

My late wife, Judy's people lived in "Yunks-town", Ohio and every time we'd go visit her mom I'd load up with Iron City to take back to Wes Ginny... First couple weeks I'd drenk it as if I go get some more at the Sweat Springs General Store but when I got down to the last couple of 6-packs I'd go into ration mode...

I think he means all along, gnu. When I lived in that general area it was well known that the carbonation in IC was caused by the air pollution control devices on the Pissburgh factories being routed through the Iron City brew tanks. Cleaned up the air by trapping the pollutants in the beer.

Okay, gn-ze... I mis-spoke... Just is as in "just" but this afternoon... Yup, had a nice talk with Rap's doctor... Doc says that Rap is doing okay... Not great, but okay... He thinks this Iron City thing has been a setback for the boy but also that Rap has needed something to kick start his treatment and thanked me for doing just that...

Sniff... I hate to think of Rap locked up in a room with rubber walls... I sho nuff do but I hope that in some way Iron City will do for him what it has for me in seeing the light...

That's because all of the rust that would have been in the air is now in the beer. Good for anemia, though, if you can stand the taste.
