On August 29th, the warm summer sand of Muskegon's Pere Marquette Beach will play host to “Burning Foot,” the city’s first craft beer festival. From late afternoon through early evening, festival goers can enjoy some of the finest Michigan beer offerings with the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan serving as a backdrop. With as many as forty craft breweries and brewpubs expected to gather on the sand for the event, Burning Foot is poised to turn Muskegon’s beach into the perfect summer playground for craft beer lovers.
Although Burning Foot is, first and foremost, a celebration of local craft beer, the festival also intends to highlight the lakeshore’s stunning natural beauty (and hot summer sand). Bordered by sand dunes to the east and Lake Michigan to the west, Pere Marquette Park provides world-class natural surroundings from every vantage point. In addition to the views and brews, Burning Foot will showcase local music acts and food vendors, ensuring that festivalgoers experience the full flavor of life along the lakeshore.

Burning Foot is the bastard love child of the Lakeshore Brewers Guild, a group brought together by their love of craft beer and the lakeshore’s natural beauty. United by their common bonds, the organizers set out to craft a festival that offers the quintessential lakeshore experience: Beer, Beaches, and a big ass Bonfire. Proceeds from the festival will be used to further promote the lakeshore’s craft breweries, as well as benefit local charitable causes, with an emphasis on continuing to improve and beautify the lakeshore region.

Tickets will be available for purchase beginning on Friday, June 5th. For additional information about tickets and further details about the festival, please visit
