MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Ore Dock Brewery in Marquette continued their Science on Tap series Thursday night and they were talking about salmon. Northern Michigan University Biologist Brandon Gerig talked about how Pacific Salmon came to be found in Lake Superior.

The second Thursday of every month the brewery partners with Northern Michigan University or others to give interesting presentations to their patrons. Staff at the Ore Dock say it's a great partnership in the community.

"It's just a great opportunity for the community to connect, not only with the university and the academic community in the Upper Peninsula, but learn about something that otherwise they might not have an opportunity to learn about; we see all different topics," said Lizzie Corser Taproom and Events Manager for the Ore Dock Brewery.

Science on Tap is one of the first community outreach programs the Ore Dock Brewery hosted.
