This flavorful beer was founded in 1997 and made its debut in Detroit, Michigan in the historic Rivertown district. The first intentions of this beer was to bring back the Bohemian style lager that Stroh's Brewing Company made famous in the mid 1800's, now it has its own unique mix of flavors. Although Detroit is known for being the Motor City, it produces some amazing well known beers. Come explore these flavors in the Slopeside Lounge at 6pm!
