Dry for two decades, taps flow with Stroh's again

This is an extra-good week to be a beer drinker in Michigan.

Stroh’s Bohemian-style Pilsner came back this week, and it’s made in Detroit.

It will be on tap at 72 bars all over Michigan on Friday.

Frances Stroh of the Stroh beer family joined us to talk about the big return of the Pilsner beer that won a ribbon at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893.

“I think it’s really the beer itself that deserves to take center stage, because it’s a beer with a very long history – it’s closely tied to Detroit’s history,” Stroh said. “In fact, I feel as if Stroh’s beer really has paralleled Detroit’s trajectory in terms of the rise and fall of both. And now, the resurgence of the beer, alongside Detroit roaring back to life, is nothing less than spectacular.” 

GUEST Frances Stroh is the author of Beer Money: A Memoir of Privilege and Loss.
