HOUGHTON, Mich. (WZMQ) – Over 1,000 people lined the Portage Lake Canal over the weekend for Keweenaw Brewfest.
The 11th annual beer festival was put on by the Rotary Club of Houghton. Attendees were able to enjoy over 200 different beers, wines, and seltzers from 50 different breweries.
This year the festival supported the Portage Lake District Library’s Teen Area Expansion Project. According to the Rotaries website the project “includes providing dedicated space for middle and high school-aged youth as well as access to resources and tools for projects, homework, creativity and social support.”
“It took a little hiatus during the pandemic, but it’s just a gathering of friends with music, and adult beverages as the name suggests, it’s just a good fundraiser for the rotary club,” said Rotary Club of Houghton President Eli Karttunen.
This was the first year since the pandemic the Rotary has held Brewfest and plans for next year’s event are already underway.
