The Burning Foot Beer Festival 2021 is almost here!

This one-of-a-kind beer festival is taking place on Saturday, August 28 on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan at Pere Marquette Beach in Muskegon, MI. The beer festival combines beer and live music while attendees are encouraged to walk around barefoot on the sands of the beach – hence the name “burning foot.”

The 2020 Burning Foot Beer Festival was cancelled last summer due to COVID-19. We are looking forward to the return since our first visit to the festival back in 2019.

Ed Norton

Edwin "Ed" Norton was first introduced to craft beer when his designated fraternity Big Brother Vince asked him if he knew anything about the topic. Ed admitted his ignorance and the rest is history as Ed and Vince would split six-packs of craft beers each week during Ed's probationary status. Ed is now a craft beer enthusiast who is always on the lookout for a beer he has not tried when bottle shopping or drinking at breweries and bars. In addition to drinking beer, this livelong Michigan resident enjoys a bunch of hobbies that he doubts you really care about, other than drinking beer and sounding off about it.
