Anheuser-Busch purchased the Rolling Rock brand from InBev for $82,000,000 in May 2006. The deal does not include the Latrobe Brewing Company, which InBev intends to sell separately, according to a Brandweek report. City Brewery of La Crosse WI intends to produce their beer under contract at Latrobe starting in January 2007; in the meantime, with nothing for the plant to do, the brewery was shut down in July 2006.

City Brewery did eventually buy this plant, and in May 2007, Boston Beer Company contracted with them to brew 250,000 barrels of their Samuel Adams beers here. Boston Beer Company may eventually take an ownership stake in this plant.
