      150 beers brewed up for BeerFest

      Approximately 40 breweries were featured at Saturday??s Keweenaw BrewFest held in Houghton??s Waterfront Park.

      Visitors received a commemorative glass with the BrewFest logo and had the opportunity to sample 12 of more than 150 beers for free.

      In the last three years, BrewFest has raised over $50,000.

      An estimated 1,100 people attended Saturday's event.

      "We're having a great time," said Mike Rose, an organizer. "We're selling a lot of tickets at the door this year, which is exciting, and I??m pretty sure we're up beyond last year's numbers?|so, we're happy."

      All the proceeds from the event go to benefit the Keweenaw Community Foundation, an organization that provides grants for various functions in the community.
