ore dock brewing company
This first brewery stop in Marquette was Ore Dock Brewing Company. I was really excited to visit Ore Dock. I first tried their beer at the Michigan Fall Beer Fest in Detroit. I couldn’t wait to check out their brewery.
As soon as we walked into Ore Dock, we were greeted with a warm welcome. Everyone was so welcoming and inviting. Within a few minutes of sitting at the bar, you could just tell how Ore Dock was a vital part of the Marquette community.
All of the bartenders were so friendly and welcoming. They answered our questions about Marquette and gave such some great recommendations of what we should see and do while we were there.
The beer was incredible at Ore Dock and I highly recommend stopping by for a drink while in Marquette.

I have been a big fan of Blackrocks Brewery for awhile now, and I have been wanting to visit the brewery for some time now. I was so excited to finally check it out!
Located in a converted old house, Blackrocks definitely is an unique brewery location. Blackrocks does distribute some of their beer in the lower peninsula and I’ve been a fan for a few years now. Even though I’ve tried a few of their beers before visiting, it was really nice being able to visit the actual brewery. They tend to have unique beers on tap that you can find anywhere else.
Blackrocks is definitely worth visiting during your trip to Marquette. The beer is spot on and the brewery has a great vibe to it.
Blackrocks often has live music from local artists too. If I lived in Marquette, I would definitely frequent Blackrocks for their great beer and space.

Barrel and Beam
One of the newest breweries in Marquette is Barrel and Beam. The brewery is focused on crafting farmhouse and barrel-aged real ale. Having a farmhouse ale brewery allows them to create a range of flavors, textures and nuance grounded by dry drinkability.
I love that they use Michigan grown ingredients as well. From fruit, hops, malt and Michigan’s freshwater, their beer highlights the great state of Michigan.
