In 1850, an entrepreneur named Bernhard Stroh, who came to Detroit from Germany, started brewing beer from his old family recipe. His new take on that old Bohemian-style pilsner was a light and refreshing lager brewed in copper kettles in his basement. He called the beer Stroh's. He would cart his beer around in a wheel borrow, selling it door-to-door to the hard-working people of Detroit. Today, still in Detroit, the brewers of Stroh's beer continue to make something of real substance for the creators, dreamers and doers of this country.
