An ice cold beer is just as much a part of Muskegon as the snow. Turns out, brewing reflects a pivotal part of this city’s past, as evident by Lakeshore Museum Center’s (LMC’s) latest exhibit: Cheers! A History of Brewing in Muskegon, running now through May 18.
“We often think of brewing beer in Muskegon as a more recent development, but breweries have actually existed here since the 1860s. With the different breweries in our county today having such a huge impact on Muskegon, it seemed like a natural fit to connect Muskegon’s brewing history to the present,” said Aaron Mace, assistant program manager at the Historic Sites.
