Detroit struggles to recover from bankrupcy

Entrepreneurs bet on brewery business to help revive US car-industry hub which has fallen on hard times.

    The car show in the city of Detroit, known as America's Motor Town, is in full swing. But the place famous for its cars and music has fallen on hard times, becoming the world's largest bankrupt city in the summer of 2013. Despite the bust, young entrepreneurs are making an effort to help the city recover, one beer drink at a time.
