Event Details

Ever since Detroit was a mere French missionary outpost, the city's history has been entwined with the story of its citizens' drinking habits. Countless stories have been shared over a pint, and a majority of the city's major moments featured alcohol front and center: the early frontier day's wild revelry, through the bloody freewheeling days of the Purple Gang & National Prohibition and beyond.  We'll stop at some of Detroit's oldest, most notorious and most interesting bars, sharing stories along the way- over a few pints, of course.

Stone House Bar, Detroit
