  • Great beers, wide selection, very impressive. Good prices and nice people The space is kinda cool, 2-3 floors, inside and out. Would be a bit better if they had a section just for sports on TV...  more »
  • Loved this place. Super dog friendly and great beer. Great selection and you can bring your own food in. Also good tucks most nights. Root beer for kids was great. We will be back  more »
  • The best beer in the UP with an atmosphere to match. Here's a snapshot of my most recent visit to the Ore Dock: it isnt all that uncommon for people to play board games while they drink. I brought my own and was drinking with a friend while the local univeristy hosted free community Salsa lessons in the background. About fifty people were learning to salsa while music blared over the PA system. All the while, my opponent and I are declaring our game actions over the sound of the encouraging instructor and the shuffling of feet. On the other half of the room (we were on the second floor), they were hosting a massive used record sale. Needless to say, it was an awesome experience and a truly great place to hand out. Also, children are clearly welcome, because kids were dancing during the open mic night that followed the salsa lessons.
  • Very neat brewery that we frequent. We prefer the space in this brewery over Blackrocks (but admittedly enjoy Blackrocks IPA a bit more) so good reason to continue going to both places. The community space upstairs is perfect for events.
