Ask the Panel

  • Doley Says: A question for John or any of you: Stroh’s was sadly the best beer available in WV when I was a kid. I actually (also sadly) really liked it. (The ruination of Stroh’s brewery is a fascinating story of how not to run a business.) Now I see that Pabst is making Stroh’s beer after like 20 or 30 years of no Stroh’s. Do you know if they’ve tried to make it the same as it was 50 years ago, or are they just making some new lousy stuff and calling it Stroh’s?
