With occasional light rain and cooler temperatures, this year’s Burning Foot Beer Festival may not have fully lived up to the name, but that’s o.k. because the thousands who attended the sold out beach festival had no complaints as it certainly delivered on the beer. Over 35 of the best lakeshore and surrounding breweries brought to Pere Marquette beach in Muskegon well over a hundred different beers including many new to the area. Add to the mix great local and national bands, amazing beer-influenced food, and the beautiful beach and the result is a success.
