MARQUETTE, Mich. (WJMN) – Ore Dock Brewing Company’s 7th annual Festival of the Angry Bear will be virtually waking up the bear on Saturday, May 2.
It’s a social event that usually involves a day packed full of live musical performances, different kinds of brews, and good company. But in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the originally scheduled date on April 4 had to be postponed. Now the Festival of the Angry Bear will be held live on the Ore Dock Brewing Company’s Facebook page.
The “Angry Bear Virtual Toast & Watch Party” will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will include live performances from bands such as Blanco Suave and The Brothers Quinn.
“Angry Bear is a springtime festival. It’s an awakening, after all that snow melts and we can get back out and get back into life again,” said Kris Wierenga, events manager for Ore Dock Brewing Company. “So with that in mind, especially with this quarantine, we thought there’s no real better time than to just have that wake up and do what we can to kind of break up the monotony a little bit. And get people engaged in whatever ways we have right now. “
Curbside pick-up and local delivery will also be offered for those who want to drink a cold brew while watching the festival.
Pre-orders are available now at www.ore-dock.com for a limited release of “Barrel-Aged Party Packs.”
