The Rooney family celebrates both its Celtic and Pittsburgh Pride with the recent launch of the next generation of brews, Rooney's Lager. A golden lager has a slight malty sweetness, delicately balanced with the spicy, zesty notes of the Tettnang and Saaz hops.
In 2011, Rooney's Old Irish Ale was introduced, a blending of an Irish ale and American amber ale.
The Rooney roots go back to the turn of the 20th century, when the family's first pub opened on the corner of Corey and General Robinson streets where Three Rivers Stadium later stood in Pittsburgh. In 1933, the family expanded the business to brewing at General Braddock Brewing Co. Four beers were produced: Rooney's Irish Ale, Rooney's Lager, Rooney's Pilsner and Veterans & Civilians Pilsner/Lager blend.
The handcrafted family-brewing heritage continues to this day, at the historic Pennsylvania Brewing Company in Troy Hill. Details: www.rooneysbeer.com
