Ore Dock Brewing Company began during a 4,000 mile road trip across the western portion of the country.

It is believed the building was constructed in 1864 and used as a grocery and granary as well as a Chinese laundry on the second floor. A fire destroyed the building in 1868 along with much of the downtown area, leading the town to forbid the construction of any building using wood. Today, the building shows evidence of the ornate sandstone work that was used to reconstruct it after the fire. You can find the brewery at 114 Spring Street in Marquette.
