LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — A brewery created to resurrect a popular Pittsburgh-area beer brand two years ago is getting ready to revive another: Fort Pitt Beer.
Duquesne Brewing Co. says it still start selling Fort Pitt Beer in August.
Fort Pitt Brewing Co. was one of several major Pittsburgh breweries in the 20th century, but went out of business in 1958.
Duquesne Beer was brewed in Pittsburgh's South Side from 1899 until 1972 and in the 1950s was the state's biggest-selling brand.
Mark Dudash, a Pittsburgh-area attorney, revived the Duquesne brand two years ago when he formed Duquesne Brewing and struck a deal for the beer to be brewed at City Brewing Co. in Latrobe, about 40 miles east of the city.
Fort Pitt Beer will also be brewed at the same location.
