Groundhog Day beer sampling draws in a crowd

MARQUETTE — On Friday night, craft beer lovers enjoyed the Community Foundation of Marquette County’s second annual Blind Groundhog Beer Sampling at the Marquette Regional History Center.

Beers from Cognition, Upper Hand, Oredock, and more were featured, but with no labels or names. Snacks were also provided by Border Grill, the Delft, and Donkers, and the evening even featured a silent auction and live music. The funds generated from tonight will go to charities and non-profits all across Marquette County.

“What we focus on trying to do is focus on giving to organizations that are going to make the most impact in the community – that can be anywhere from Bay Cliff, to UPAWS, to smaller organizations like JJ Packs,” said Marquette Area Fund Committee Member, Trish Davis.

Davis also says despite the cold weather that a groundhog may predict for the rest of the winter, the committee loves putting on events just like this one.
