Written by Lauren Bareiss on October 10, 2017
Marquette, MI – October 10, 2017 – UPtoberfest is one of the U.P.’s largest wine and beer festivals. Held on the beautiful lakeshore in downtown Escanaba, MI, UPtoberfest is back for it’s twelfth year. The festival brings breweries, meaderies, and wineries from all over Michigan to participate. Escanaba’s Homebrew Club, the Bay de Noc Brewers are hosting UPtoberfest to share their knowledge about beer and meet other craftbrew loving people, while sipping on a cold one.
This year the focus of UPtoberfest is to keep it local! All beer and wine vendors attending are from Michigan, with the majority of them being from the U.P. and the northern Lower Peninsula. The Bay de Noc Brewers will be giving proceeds from UPtoberfest 2017 to The United Way of Delta County. Join the crew at the Municipal Dock in downtown Escanaba for the festival from 2-7pm this Saturday, October 14th.
Cruise the beer tents trying new local brews, stop by the all-new Pretzel Necklace Bar, listen to live music, play some games, and get a real pint glass, plus free hors d’oeuvres from Bobaloon’s!
Some of the vendors attending include:
- Bell’s Brewing Company
- Blackrocks Brewing
- Cognition Brewing
- Hereford and Hops
- Keweenaw Brewing
