October 2019 Brewery of the Month – Keweenaw Brewing Company

The Keweenaw Brewing Company opened in April of 2004. Located in the middle of downtown Houghton on the historic Keweenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula, the KBC, as it is known to the locals, produced over 400 bbls in the first year of operation. With the goal of turning beer drinkers into craft beer lovers, they have grown since then, tripling the size of their taproom. In 2007 they added a wholesale brewing and canning facility in nearby South Range and increased saled to over 12,000 barrels by 2018, making them the 8th largest brewery in Michigan for in-state sales.

Enjoy five select brews from Keweenaw Brewing Company all month long in October exclusively at 5 Bridges Pub!

Early Autumn Ale: A medium hoppy amber ale in celebration of fall.
5.3% ABV
Olde Oredock Scottish Ale: A traditional Scottish Ale, this dark brown beer focuses on malt color and flavor with hops being almost imperceptible. Aged with American Oak, this ale finishes crisp and just a wee bit sweet. 5.5% ABV
November Gale Pale Ale: This golden beer has a medium malt character, assertive hop flavor and bitterness with a distinctive fruity aroma and citrus finish. 5.5% ABV
Borealis Broo: A blend of cold-brewed Borealis coffee from Keweenaw Coffee Works (Calumet, MI) and an amber style ale. The delightful flavor from the medium roast coffee combined with the mild sweetness of caramel malt shines through this lightly hopped beverage. 5.5% ABV
Point Trail: A “Rye PA” brewed with just enough malted rye to lend a spicy crispness to an already complex, multi-hopped beer. 7.2% ABV
