Folks in Detroit still wax eloquently about Stroh BEER. Some claim  
that the Stroh brewers and the Stroh  stringed instrument makers  
derive from the same family.

Decades ago during my day gig years, I knew Ed Stroh who was one of  
Ford Motor Company's top sales executives heading up Ford's Motorcraft  
Parts Division. He was a part of the beer brewing Stroh family.
