|Keweenaw Brewing Co
This microbrewery opened on April 22, 2004 and is located in downtown Houghton, MI about two blocks from the Library Bar & Restaurant, a brewpub, and is housed in the old Bergdahts & Briggs building. A 15-bbl Pub brewhouse purchased from Crescent City Brewhouse in New Orleans is used to produce the beers. The first cans were filled in November 2004 using a 5 head 120 can per minute Cask Brewing system. The canning line was moved to the new production brewery in South Range, MI in late 2006. See cans from the South Range MI location.
