Greater Latrobe Beverage Company invites you to its Grand Opening on October 13, 2018! Come join the party from 12 PM to 6 PM and meet the team!
Michael J. Hudock, III, one of the owners, grew up in Latrobe, graduated from Latrobe High School and attended Saint Vincent College before moving to Pittsburgh to attend law school and is a practicing attorney in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. Michael is excited to be coming back home to Latrobe to open the distributorship and reconnect with the community.
Emmett W. Wilson, co-owner and Michael’s friend and client, has prior experience as an owner and operator of a successful beer distributorship, Golden Triangle Distributors, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which he has transferred to his son. We chose to call our new distributorship the Greater Latrobe Beverage Company because we want to send the message that we are here to serve and become an integral part of the community and be another good neighbor in an awesome city.
Greater Latrobe Beverage will strive to offer the widest variety of beer and malt beverages in the area and will welcome all special requests from its customers. As we learn the tastes and favorites of the community, we will continue to stock the shelves with what are customers are looking for, but also will provide new offerings for those adventurous ones willing to try something new and possibly find another favorite. Each customer will be welcomed by our friendly and helpful team.
We are planning special events throughout the upcoming year such as beer tasting and food pairing events, kicking off with our grand opening, to engage our community and offer some fun along the way! We are planning a broad social media presence so we can keep our patrons and the community at large advised of all of our scheduled events and activities as well as specials and new arrivals and to seek input from the community: Look for the launch in upcoming weeks.
The owners look forward to building a strong and lasting relationship with the community. As we get settled in, we will be reaching out to the City to become involved with community-based projects and initiatives. Of particular interest to us is the Latrobe Community Revitalization Program and the Lloyd Avenue Gateway Improvement Project with which we hope to get involved in the near future.
As we look back on our opening one year from now, five years from now, we hope that the Greater Latrobe community is happy we have come home!
