If you've ever wondered where your Iron City beer comes from, here is the place. This is the kettle room, where brew master Mike Carota oversees the process of making the sudsy beverage that flows so freely on Steelers Sundays. Below, employee Tim Guthrie checks out stacks of beer ready to be shipped out. By Friday, the room will be empty, the beer delivered to customers preparing for thirsty fans on NFL game day. The Pittsburgh Brewing Co. facility is located at Liberty Avenue and 34th Street in Lawrenceville, in a red-brick building that oozes history. The company has been there since 1866, the year it was moved from its original location on 17th Street. A number of innovations have come from the ancient structure, including the first "snap-top" can (1962) and the first aluminum beer bottle (2004).
