September Brewery of the Month – Blackrocks Brewery

In 2010, David and Andy were looking down the barrel of economic downsizing in their industry. Looking at it as an opportunity instead of a problem, the two set out to take their basement hobby to a new level. The two agreed upon a Nano Brewery (1 BBL brewhouse). They had no idea the amount of interest the locals had for crafts beers. Blackrocks still brews beer at the original pub on 3rd St, as well as a 20 BBL production system in Marquette. Two key ideas fuel Blackrocks on a day to day basis: always make the best beer possible and always have fun while doing it.

Enjoy five select brews from Blackrocks Brewery all month long in September exclusively at 5 Bridges Pub!
