Frances Stroh is the award-winning author of BEER MONEY: A Memoir of Privilege and Loss, which chronicles the rise and fall of the Stroh Brewery Company, a fascinating American saga, and one linked inextricably with the decimation of Detroit, its longtime headquarters. In her memoir, Ms. Stroh recounts the demise of a dynasty and brings to life the fractured family at its center: her own. Though she eventually forged her own path, attending college on a Fulbright scholarship and becoming an installation artist as well as an investor, Ms. Stroh’s experience was formed by the profligate spending, alcoholism, drug abuse, and rebellion that came with a $700 million fortune, and predicated its loss. She now advises family businesses on thoughtful succession and setting up future generations for personal success.
