Walt Disney Co. says it is in escrow to purchase the site of a closed Stroh brewery in Van Nuys, but Disney and Stroh Brewery Co. declined comment on reports that the purchase price is $33.5 million. Alan Epstein, vice president of Disney Development Co., said the 38-acre site--a few miles west of Disney's Burbank headquarters--would be used by Disney personnel, but he declined to elaborate. The brewery was built in 1954 by Jos. Schlitz Co., which was acquired by Detroit-based Stroh in 1982.

A couple of blocks up Abbot Kinney Boulevard from Venice's gourmet ghetto, Jason Stroh has opened a tiny cheese shop and grocery. The next time you're headed out to the beach or marina, it's worth keeping Stroh's Gourmet in mind, because this is prime picnic pickings. Straight ahead when you walk in is a case displaying rows of sandwiches on crusty La Brea Bakery bread, as enticing as any on show at stops along an Italian autostrada. And they're made with top-notch ingredients.

The Stroh family has sold beer in Detroit since 1850. But industry experts are wondering if a company full of 19th century tradition will toast the new millennium. The Stroh Brewery Co. has been struggling with declining sales, a loss of contract business, increased competition and heavy debt. And that has fueled industry speculation that the company would be sold to Pabst Brewing Co. and its assets split between Pabst and Miller Brewing Co.

Peter Gunny, who had his choice of high schools, picked Granada Hills in part because he wanted to play baseball for Darryl Stroh. Three years later, Gunny is finally getting his chance to play for the veteran coach, although not in the sport he imagined. Stroh retired as Granada Hills' baseball coach after the 1996 season, a year before Gunny reached the varsity.

Few people would dare pick a fight with Jory Goldberg, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound tackle from Granada Hills High. He's so big and strong he could stuff a sportswriter in a trash can with one arm tied behind his back. But there is one person who makes Goldberg tremble--Darryl Stroh, the 59-year-old Granada Hills co-coach. "I'm scared of Coach Stroh," Goldberg said. "I know what he can do. I've seen it happen. I don't want to do anything to [anger] this guy."

At first glance, the return of Darryl Stroh as the Granada Hills defensive coordinator was an unqualified success. Last year, Granada Hills gave up 464 yards and 33 points in their season opener. Last week, the Highlanders held their opponent to six yards passing and 56 total yards en route to a 35-0 victory. Don't get too excited. There was one difference--quality of competition. Granada Hills opened the 1997 season against Hart, the best offensive team in the region this decade.

Quarterback Jason Winn threw for two touchdowns as Granada Hills gave co-coaches Darryl Stroh and Tom Harp a successful return with a 35-0 season-opening victory over host North Hollywood on Friday. "It's been four seasons but it felt like an eternity," Stroh said after his team recovered from first-half sloppiness to dominate in the second half. "That was about as ugly a first half as I've seen. We had to settle them down a little bit. We're looking forward to some good things."

The Hart High passing tournament today offers a preview of the rebuilding effort being mounted by Granada Hills football coaches Darryl Stroh and Tom Harp. Stroh and Harp, who guided the Highlanders to the City Section 4-A Division title in 1987, returned to the job in November. "We're pretty much starting from scratch," Harp said. "But Darryl's done a great job organizing the off-season program and we're really happy with the effort and attitude of the kids."
