Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Pittsburgh Brewing Company, which says:
"R.W.C.: A response seems to be needed. First, I am an outsider too, from eastern PA; born there, grew up there, live there now. Like you, I went to CMU (History MA, 1984); unlike you, I never found Pittsburgh to be hostile to outsiders. The people I met from Pittsburgh were proud of what they had and never too busy to talk to me about the town. Second, I rate Iron City as "good" in comparison to other mainstream American beers (as I said in my review), and I stick by that. It's as good as any other mainstream American beer. Third, Pittsburgh isn't just stagnant, it's shrinking, though you need to go back further than 25 years to see that. Pittsburgh's lost 1/3 of its population since 1960. The decline of Big Steel is most of that, despite what some Pittsburghers have told me. Finally, I agree with you that the city desperately needs outside investment. But don't attribute my "Who Needs You?" to the city. I only said that in reference to the ridiculous statements I've heard about Iron City outside Pittsburgh. Iron City has always been a Pittsburgh beer, and the city has always supported it, just like Yuengling in Schuylkill County. The brewery will live or die on the support of Pittsburgh. That's true too, and why not? What's wrong with a local brewery? But the city is not going to save itself by buying from outside and killing local industry it DOES have. If you want to discuss this further, my e-mail is attached."
