UPtoberfest is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan's only beer and wine festival. The event is put on by my homebrew club, Bay de Noc Brewers, and 100% of the proceeds benefit The United Way of Delta County. We'll have over 50 beers/wines available for tasting as well as free snacks from Bobaloon's, a local deli. The cost is $25 in advance or $30 at the gate. Tickets are available at Hereford & Hops and Bobaloon's in Escanaba, White's Party Store and Blackrocks Brewery in Marquette, or at www.uptoberfest.org. If you have any questions, please respond to this thread or shoot me a PM. I hope to see some HBTers there!

Hey Jason - we talked very briefly at the Marquette fest. Brian sent you over to talk to me because Jon from Short's was looking for me. I'm pretty sure that we had a class together in high school too. Anyway, I'll see you there!

Yeah, I did talk to you at the fest. That was a good time. What class? I went to Esky my senior year.

There's a good chance that I will be attending this festival. Looks like it'll be a great weekend for it too.

I wish we could make it! It sounds like a great time and I hate to miss it.

Please make sure to give us a full report on Monday! I definitely want to put this on my calendar for next year.
