Muskegon, Mich – After last year’s sold out festival on August 27th 2016, the warm summer sand of Muskegon’s Pere Marquette Beach will play host to the 2nd annual Burning Foot Beer Festival. From 3pm to 9pm, festival goers can enjoy some of the finest craft beer found in the Great Lakes region, with the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan serving as a backdrop. With 50 craft breweries from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin gathering on the sand for the event, Burning Foot is poised to turn Muskegon’s beach into the perfect summer playground for craft beer lovers.

As a supplement to the Michigan Brewers Guild, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild will focus on counties that touch Lake Michigan. States included are Michigan, Indiana, Illinois & Wisconsin. Throughout these counties, the Guild is working with its members to build the “Lakeshore Ale Trail,” a region rich in craft breweries, natural beauty, and the economic benefits that flow from successful locally-owned and oriented businesses. Joint advertising and cooperative support allows Guild members to grow while also establishing the region as a “beer tourism” hotspot. Through these collaborative efforts, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild is becoming a driving force in supporting both its members and local economies.
