In informal conversation, in answer to the question, "What happened?" would it be correct to reply, "Nothing still important"? (Meaning nothing that is still important to discuss now; the topic lost its importance).

If you mean not much that matters to the brewery. – Kris Nov 26 '12 at 7:41

You wouldn't use "still" in quite that way. In informal conversation, you could say,

Nothing that's still important.

You could also say,

Nothing that's important any more.
