'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

ROONEY'S LAGER

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
