Iron City

Kris Maher, reporting for The Wall Street Journal last week:

The Steel City is losing its Iron City.

On Monday, the last batch of Iron City beer will be brewed at the nine-acre, red-brick brewery complex outside downtown Pittsburgh that was founded in 1861. Production will move 40 miles away to the Latrobe, Pa., brewery that once made another recently displaced regional favorite, Rolling Rock beer, now brewed in Newark, N.J.

This is like Duff moving out of Springfield.
