Second Annual Blind Groundhog Beer Sampling – February 2, 2018

Will we have six more weeks of winter or an early spring? Who knows? Punxsutawney Phil is a groundhog, not a meteorologist! This year Phil and all other craft beer lovers will be invited to the Community Foundation of Marquette County’s second annual Blind Groundhog Beer Sampling. The event will be hosted by the Marquette Area Community Fund (“MAC”), an affiliate fund of the Community Foundation of Marquette County, on February 2, 2018, at the Marquette Regional History Center from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

During the event, guests will enjoy “blind” samples of brews selected by UP brewers. At the end of the evening, each of the brews will be revealed. Border Grill food, great beers, wine and lots of fun!

The event is intended to help to raise money for the  Community Foundation Grants Program, which provides grants to many local charities.

To buy tickets, Visit the Community Foundation office at 250 N McClellan Ave in Marquette or go online: Second Annual Blind Groundhog Beer Sampling.

Must be 21 or older to participate in sampling. Valid ID is required at the door.
