Event Details

National Prohibition became law in 1919. One hundred years later, Michigan boasts an impressive craft brewing scene. Celebrate this centennial at the History Center by sampling beers from the newly revived Upper Peninsula Brewing Company.
This year the Marquette Regional History Center (MRHC) is adding a historical dimension to Marquette Craft Beer Week. Brewing History, on Wednesday, September 4th from 7-9 PM, is a $35 per ticket fundraiser to support the History Center.

Hear about the history of brewing and prohibition from noted local historian Russ Magnaghi. The author of Prohibition in the Upper Peninsula and Upper Peninsula Beer, Dr. Magnaghi will share insights from his research and be available to answer questions about drinking traditions in the U.P.
