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 — a former bartender himself — and Mickey have a great conversation talking about the old time history of Detroit bars and prohibition, and how drinking changed in Detroit forever. 

The show was recorded at the historic 2-Way Inn.

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

Of course, if you like the show - you shouldn't miss another episode. You can subscribe free on Apple Podcasts or wherever shows are found. There are also more than 50 back episodes here.
