    I just emailed an inquiry to Faygo asking if they could help with a speaker and or a tour. Will let you know what I find out.

    My uncle, Harvey Lipsky, was known as Mr Faygo. He was a VP until he retired at age 76. As a chemist there, he was responsible for many of the flavors...Maybe I can talk him into going.

      Hey Brian, Do all the events have to take place in the City of Detroit , you know when you say you are looking for a location.

  • SCS L.

    The last comment about this is in May, 2015. Previous to that there is comment about waiting till the new board comes in... If this event is no long in the planning stage, can it be removed please?

    We have ( had ?) a whole bunch of Faygo delivery boxes... wonder if there is any market ? The guy who ran the Faygo truck maintenance was a part time mechanic for us - 10 -20 years ago.

    Hi We are members of the CRAFT Homebrew Club and are hoping to get a chance to listen to the talk at Dakota Inn and we are also interested in Faygo. We are a homebrew club that is part of a conference in Grand Rapids MI in June 2014 about the history of brewing in Michigan. We would love input from Strohs or Faygo due to as of today we are looking to brew a historical Michigan beer or a beer we can brew with historical Michigan products. Unfortunately we are are on a wait list for these awesome speakers. If anyone can help us get these speakers to our next meeting on February 8th 2014 at 5;00 pm at Roseville Masonic Center we would love to hear from anyone about brewing history in Michigan. In June we will host the American Homebrew Association National Conference in Grand Rapids MI with 4,000 homebrewers in attendance. Any help you can give us will be gratefully appreciated.
    Thank You
