906 Polar Roll

Polar Roll Logo Only White.jpg

If you've spent  3 or 4 beers worth of time  in the pub than you've most likely seen a decent amount of people drinking a beer after a mountain bike ride. Dirty shoes, sweaty, thirsty, maybe even still wearing their helmets (Andy). Marquette is an amazing place to ride bikes (year round) and thanks to our good buds at the NTN Singletrack, we have miles and miles of world class trails just a short jaunt from the pub. Many of us at Blackrocks are avid riders and/or hikers who get out on these trails often. Since we like to play as much as we like to make/drink beer, we get really excited to help organize races and events on these trails. And since we are true Midwestern folk we don't run inside when the snow starts dumping in measurable feet, we suit up and play in it.

For all of those reasons we have jumped on board at the Title Sponsor of a new fat bike race this winter, The 906 Polar Roll. A 35 or 18 mile point to point race starting in Ishpeming and ending in Marquette. 35 Miles! Yeah, make no mistake, the long race will be a challenge. So you can feel good about slamming a few extra IPAs after the finish (or during...). The long race is also part of the Great Lakes Fatbike Series. Set for February 21st, the race will take you over all of the SBT (Snow Bike Trail, Ishpeming) and the SBR (Snow Bike Route, Marquette) with a beer infused after party at our production facility to follow. So gear up and lets ride bikes and drink beers!

Check out the event website here for more info.

North Third Stout Winter Seasonal

Behold! Just in time for the recent barrage of snow we received, we are releasing the North Third Stout. A beauty of a Foreign Extra Stout, full of roasted malt/chocolate flavors. Unlike many other winter stouts that can get a bit unruly, the North Third is very drinkable and smooth (so have a few).

Michigan often has epic winters, and we like to make the best of them. With this beer we intended to make a stout that you can drink while getting outside and enjoying winter. It's a stout ale brewed for our stout winters. Go out and enjoy it!

One Million Cans

Using a highly advanced, proprietary algorithm we have deduced that today we filled our one millionth can of beer. Holy schnikes that crept up on us quick! That's like a lot of beer (at least to us it is, others will laugh a that figure). Anyway, it's business as usual around here but, we did manage to pull off what we figured was can one million (random) and snapped a pic of the little guy looking all proud. Let's see how fast we can reach 2 million AKA go out and have a beer! 

Cheers!

Winter Seasonal

You may have seen some recent posts/pictures hinting at a new beer from us (if you haven't then I need to get better at my job). Well you bethcha! On November 14th/15th we are releasing the North Third Stout, a super flavorful Foreign Extra Stout. In fact I can hear Chutte clanging away in the brewhouse right now as he brews the first batch. Once Chutte is done today we will let it sit in the fermentor for a couple weeks so the yeast can get down and do their thing (sex and eat), then we start filling up cans to send them out! 

Mirroring the Honey Lav which was around for the summer months, the North Third will grace our gnarly Michigan winter months. As well as in cans you can find the stout on tap at the pub throughout the winter. Look for it soon!

Cheers,

Steve

New Digs

If you've visited our website before you can probably tell that it's changed quite a bit. We decided to switch it up and build a new site...and here it is, we hope you like it. 

We wanted a site that was easier to navigate and fun to explore around. We also integrated the online store directly into the site, so browsing and purchasing gear is simpler. We wanted a page that gives visitors a better glimpse into the brewery, and all the fun we have here. So explore around and keep an eye out for more content n stuff to be added throughout the website. 

Cheers!

Steve
