THE U.P. BEER FEST ROLLED OUT THE BARRELS!

THE KBC'S SCOTTISH ALE INFO

Mattson Lower Harbor Park in the city of Marquette was hopping (and yeasting and barleying ) on Saturday for the second annual U.P. Beer Fest sponsored by Michigan Brewer’s guild.  Dozens of micro brewers from around the state (including 6 or more from the U.P.) gathered to share their wares with thirsty patrons from around the region.  Tasty waves flowed and the fun was had…especially at the Keweenaw Brewing Company tent as a new brew was unveiled to the thirsty public!

THE OLDE ORE DOCK SCOTTISH ALE MADE IT’S APPEARANCE.

KBC'S PAUL POURS THE BREWS.

Paul Boissevain, co-owner and operator of the Keweenaw Brewing Company was in attendance and was kept busy pouring samples of all of their specialty beers for all who were in attendance and wished for a taste.  The newly-named Olde Ore Dock Scottish Ale was a BIG hit with thirsty patrons and was very well received.  It was good to see the process all the way through.  From the first attempts at coming up with a name last spring here in Marquette to seeing the logo art and graphic design of this  soon to be widely distributed brew.


THE OLDE ORE DOCK SCOTTISH ALE IS NOW ON IT’S OWN!

YOUR HEARTY KBC FOLKS HOLD THE NEW LOGO!

Formally launched this weekend in the shadow of the Marquette Ore Dock, the Olde Ore Dock Scottish Ale from the KBC is well on it’s way to becoming the next bit hit from those fine folks in the north.  And it’s cool to say that listeners of Mark & Walt in the Morning were influential factors in it’s identification process!  Thanks to all who took part in the events within the last few months.  I say, let’s grab a cold one and celebrate our new friend, the Keweenaw Brewing Company’s OLDE ORE DOCK SCOTTISH ALE!!  HooRay!


CHEERS!
