July 2019 Brewery of the Month – Ore Dock Brewing Company

The Ore Dock Brewing Company started in the summer of 2009 during a 4,000 mile road trip across the western U.S. In their travels, they made a habit of visiting local breweries. They especially enjoyed the breweries that exhibited a clear link to their community, utilized locally produced ingredients and products and fostered local art and music. It was then that they realized they wanted to take the atmosphere at these breweries and infuse it with their love of Marquette, Michigan, and the dream to start a microbrewery was born.

Ore Dock has something for the light beer drinker, the dark beer lover and the hop head. Enjoy 5 select brews from Ore Dock all month long in July exclusively at 5 Bridges Pub!
