The journey of a man who decided to uncover the local brewing history in Wisconsin.
"Raised in Ghana’s once German-occupied Volta Region, Djameh was exposed to beer from an early age. His father was a German teacher, and often socialized with visiting Germans in need of translation services. They would drink German beer together, and it fascinated Djameh. He promised himself that he would learn to make it some day."
Story of Clement Djameh who recently opened Ghana's first microbrewery. Clement started his brewing career by attending TU Munich, then moving back to Africa to brew with some of the big names. The brewery's website states that they make some indigenous African beers as well, so I hope some day I get to visit.
The history of the Stroud Brewery has been published in a new book by historian Marion Hearfield
