Detroit Prohibition and Brewery History Narrated Bus Tour:
Brewing and the prohibition movement has a long history in Detroit. Small breweries popped up during the mid-1800s to support immigrants settling in the area. Prohibition came to Detroit in the early 1900’s. Gangs starting bringing over illegal booze from Canada via the Detroit River and the race to keep the Detroit area residents “wet” was on. Once prohibition was repealed, a dozen breweries opened back up in the city. Consolidation occurred over the following decades until only Stroh Brewery remained. Local brewing triumphantly returned again in the 1990’s. Today Detroit is full of local breweries producing an amazing variety of beer. Join the Detroit Beer Book author and Motor City Brew Tours founder Steve Johnson for a narrated bus tour. We will visit former brewery and prohibition era sites in downtown Detroit. Steve will share stories about pre, during and post prohibition era history of the city. Lunch at Traffic Jam & Snug Restaurant and Brewery is also included in this tour.
