    1. Marty's Copper Harbor Fish Camp on January 10, 2013

      Fish Camp will resume again next month, expecting 16 at camp and that will be a full house. Looking forward to the fresh brew from Brickside Brewery so I'm excited. see you all soon! Mert

      Enjoyed the Fish Camp IPA at Marty's Fish Camp 21, keep that recipe a secret cause if it gets out, well I would hate to think. Looking forward to tasting your brews when I'm in the Great State of Copper Harbor next time. I'm the guy wearing the cool hat in the picture in front of Fish Camp 21.

      Great news that you guys are getting up and running. The Fish Camp IPA That I had in February was fantastic! I really hope you brew more of it and make it a staple of your production. I would definitely buy a few cases next time I'm up there to enjoy myself and to share with family and friends in Chicago and Wisconsin, and I know the other guys from Marty's Fish Camp would do the same. We also have overwhelming and enthusiastic support for you brewing a "That's What She Said Red" ale if you should ever choose to brew so! Please keep us posted.
      Thanks. -Dano, in Chicago, and a Fish Camp IPA fan for life

      Congratulations! Always great to see another local brewery make it. Eventually American beer drinkers will wake up and learn to drink beer with flavor instead of Light (yuk) beer. Ever see a skinny guy drinking light beer? apparently it doesn't work.
      How about brewing some more of that Fish Camp IPA? It's made a hophead outta me. Can't go back now.

      Got my stuff! Toasted the brewery with a pint of homebrew mead, in the Brickside glass. I'll be wearing the shirt with pride tomorrow at a local beer event. I'll definitely come visit once you're up and running!

      Looking good Jason! I received my pint glass Saturday and promptly toasted to the success of Brickside Brewery with a glass of homebrew IPA. (yes, I did take it out of the box and wash it first)

      I'm really hoping you'll have the goodies sent out relatively soon. My mom and I (separately) backed as a gift for my husband. It would be so nice to give him actual boxes to open at Christmas, and then tell him we're going to Copper Harbor again this coming summer! I can't wait to meet you. I'm so happy for you that your dream is coming true.

      Added $25 from an avid home brewer and scooter nut form ST.Net.

    22. Jason D Robinson Creator on June 30, 2011

      Thats a great idea Jeff, I still have a bit left over from my friends wedding, When we hit the magic 20k this week, I'll throw a bonfire party, and we can kill off the rest of the brew I have on hand! Anyone in the area is welcome to show up!

    23. Jeff Wentworth on June 30, 2011

      About to make the 9 hour drive to CH for 9 days of awesome camping. Will there be a party going on this week when the mark is hit? Is there any local hangouts where one migh get a glimps of the future property or a sample of the wonderful beverages to come!!
