I'd like to know why The Latrobe Bulletin has NOT reported that City Brewing is near declaring bankruptcy, employees at the plant were asked to take pay cuts and they froze the 401K payments at the plant. Employees are being forced to work 12 hour shifts only a handful of them are now working. I know this to be true as I know many of the current workers. yet when The Latrobe Bulletin reports on City Brewing it's always how well they are doing. When the real truth is they are not doing well at all.

It's time The Latrobe Bulletin speaks the truth about City Brewing instead of telling untruths.

no one is forced to work 12 hours. Only greedy employees who dont want other ones hired! 83 people are currenty employed, 6 new employees hired friday, with a second shift scheduled in march.

I'd sure like to know where you got your information on 83 people working? Your not even close to being right on that number.

Just another inflated number to make City look good in the public eye.

And since you think your so good with numbers while your at it why hasn't the public been told about that very hazardous chemical building your putting so close to Ligonier street. One that if something were to happen with that building you can even see it burning with the naked eye other than to see blacktop burning. One would think if your going to put a storage building up like that you won't put it so close to a very heavily traveled street.

its not a storage building! it contains pumps and controls to off load liquid from a tanker truck to a storage tank inside the building.

Thanks to City Brewing, Latrobe could be paying higher sewage rates soon. When is the brewery going to build that pre-treatment plant they were told to build when they reopened?

Enough is enough of this Rolling Rock\City Brewing stuff. Everyone sick and tired of this stuff. You people are nothing but cry babies. You had the best jobs in Latrobe for years and you all helped loose them, everyone in town knows how many of the Rolling Rock people were up in town walking the jogging path and sitting at the donut shop or Valley dairy when you should have been at work. Some people were even at home working in there yards when they should have been at work and let everyone know Rolling Rock was paying them to cut grass at home. 3 guys were bartenders and when on cleanup were bartending while getting paid by Rolling Rock. So cry me a river you all helped close Rolling Rock by letting your fellow workers do that stuff. you union knew it and let them get away with it. So stop crying on here no one cares anymore. You people only have yourself to thank

If City Brewery is close to claiming bankruptcy how were they able to purchase the brewery? How could they make that large of an investment if they are in financial trouble?

they only paid 300k for the whole place anyone could have done that. And they did tell the employees right before Christmas that could happen.

Businesses often declare Chapter 11 Bankruptcies to reorganize finances. Donald Trump is worth a bazillion dollars, and his corporation has declared bankruptcy. Major airlines have also declared bankruptcies and stayed in business. In the case of the purchaser of the brewery, the Sam Adams company, whatever it is called, could have purchased the brewery -- precisely -- because it wanted to lose a little money (on paper, or literally), and then reorganize under a Chapter 11. Before anyone posts again, with worry and criticism, why doesn't everyone read up on Chapter 11 bankruptcies and then, the employees posting can take their questions directly to their employer to find out how the Chapter 11, if it's a real thing, will affect their jobs.

Sure pal, what you do is so incredibly complicated that no one else can do it. Face facts genius, it's not rocket science, it's a computer-run system where the computer is the important component, not you.

Trust me when I say this, it looks like there are about 2 maybe 3 people that know what they are talking about in here. Mr. Clairidge, PA is near brain dead, you can tell he's never set foot in the brewery and if he did he sure as hell didn't work anywhere near the bottling line. Greg from Blairsville, 300K for the whole place? Wrong! and if they did pay that it isn't a turnkey operation, clown. The brewery uses more water and gas in a month than a family of 5 uses in 80 years. I could continue but I stop at that. This Topix forum is becoming a place were people gather up and act like they know what they're talking about. Bring It.

Gee whiz Donnie, you sure know how to say a whole lot of nothing. Please, share with us your wisdom and tell us all that a bright guy like you knows.

Is the bottling line computerized or not??? Is the computer an integral part of the bottling line or not?? You stopped before you posted anything that was either informative or interesting. Looks like this Topix Forum has become a place where 'brilliant minds' come to complain about how stupid everyone else is.
