PODCAST: Detroit Bar & Prohibition History With Mickey Lyons

Play episode

We’re getting back to our boozy roots with this Daily Detroit Happy Hour conversation with barchaeologist Mickey Lyons.

She’s the talent author behind a recent Hour Detroit piece, “Dry Times: Looking Back 100 Years After Prohibition.”

Sven Gustafson — no stranger to a bar himself as a former bartender — and Mickey have a great conversation talking about the old time history of Detroit bars and prohibition, and how drinking changed in Detroit forever.

Mickey Lyons has a book coming out this fall and you can follow her work at her site, Prohibition Detroit.
