Stroh's bought out Old Milwaukee and closed their own Detroit production facility in the 80's (the first of many plant closings in the 80's). I think the Stroh's brands got broken up and sold off in about 2000. Pabst got Stroh's. I think Stroh's is notable (and I liked it as a child) as they, like most of us "Fire Brewed" their beer until the end.....therefore Stroh's was dark p*** colored. I will look for Stroh's on my liquor store shelves to see if it can be a decent lawnmower beer.
And, for fun facts, the morning crew on (as The Dick the Bruiser Band) WRIF-FM in Detroit released a parody of Don Henley's "Boys of Summer" called "After the Brewery on Gratiot is Gone"...if you can find it, it is a great beer song (along with a parody of 96 Tears" called 96 Beers...and a few other fun parodies from the 80's).
