About Marie Orttenburger
An Upper Peninsula native, Marie's passion for both Michigan and its beer is as bottomless as you wish your next pint to be. Relocating to Grand Rapids in 2010, her love for community, journalism and photography has played an integral role in shaping her professional and daily life. By day, Marie is a writer, creator and editor. By night, her dreams are occupied by fields of hops filled with puppies and permeated by the melodies of local music.
