Inaugural UP Oktoberfest – September 12

We are excited to announce our first beer festival in the Upper Peninsula! Mark your calendars now for September 12th in Marquette. The Festival will take place at Ellwood Mattson Lower Harbor Park, overlooking Lake Superior. Although the event is labeled as “Oktoberfest,” it will feature a blend of characteristics you’ve become accustomed to at our Summer and Winter Festivals, traditional UP hospitality, and hints of Bavaria. Look for tickets to go on sale on our website in the coming days, and I will post a list of participating breweries this week. See you on the other side of the bridge!

    It doesn’t get any better than this! “Support MI businesses and purchase MI products”. It will be a great time in Marquette and hopefully the locals will embrace this new adventure. What a perfect location to enjoy MI’s beauty and tranquility. I will be there all the way from Battle Creek!

    WAS “the blend of characteristics you’ve become accustomed to” include paying $35-$40 for 12 tokens? I don’t know if you guys in the UP had a nice “little” festival going on prior to the Michigan Brewers Guild Invasion…but we here in Detroit had OUR own last fall with a $15 price tag for all you could drink(METRO TIMES billed it as “drink till the kegs float”) NOW THAT IS OVER WITH THE M.B.G. takeover/merger!PLEASE M.B.G. stay out of my backyard, when I have the guys over for more than eight beers! Signed, love Michigan beer, but enough is enough…..$$$$$$
