Brewing legacy on Board of Supervisors

Record columnist Michael Fitzgerald wrote today about a new brewery in Sacramento that’s brought back an old beer from the region. Ruhstaller Beer is following in the footsteps of Capt. Frank Ruhstaller, a Swiss immigrant who became a prominent brewer in Sacramento in the 19th Century.

Prohibition killed the old brewery, but the family lived on in Stockton, including with San Joaquin County Supervisor Frank “Larry” Ruhstaller.

“I basically said, ‘Hey, any time you need me, I’ll show up at your events and play the Captain like Colonel Sanders,” Ruhstaller said in the column.
