The Iron City Brewery (also known as the Pittsburgh Brewing Co.) was started in 1861, by Edward Frauenheim, a young German immigrant. It was one of the first breweries to produce a lager. The company soon began brewing Iron City Beer, which would become the enduring flagship creation of the Iron City Brewing Company. Iron City Brewery's fame spread quickly throughout the country's brewing industry. The Pittsburgh facility was one of the most complete and extensive breweries in the united states. In 1899, the Iron City Brewery merged with twelve other local breweries, along with nine others outside the country, to form the Pittsburgh Brewing Company. Prohibition starting in 1920 forced many taverns and breweries to close, yet the Pittsburgh Brewing Company survived, producing soft drinks, ice cream and near beer to survive.
By 1977, Pittsburgh Brewing Company was one of just forty breweries left in the country. In a move to restore stability during difficult financial times, the brewery introduced a new light beer, branded as Iron City Light, or IC Light. The new product quickly captured 80 percent of the local light-beer market and helped increase the sales of regular Iron City beer, which soon regained the position of Southwestern Pennsylvania's favorite beer.
