Oskar Blues Brewery is bringing its BURNING CAN (notjusta) Beer Fest and CAN’d Aid Fundraiser back to Lyons, Colorado on June 4, 2016. This summer tradition is an award-winning celebration of canned craft beer, Burning Can (notjusta) Beer fest is part of Lyons Outdoor Games. More than 60 craft breweries from around the country will be on hand to sample their canned brews – nearly 200 beers in all – and take part in the country’s original active beer festival that combines live music, spectator sports and sport competitions, and a concert by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
Registration is open and tickets are on sale HERE. Burning Can also features participant and spectator sport competitions including The Beer Relay, a team trail running and beer drinking event. This four-hour competition is run in teams of two or four. Runners will complete as many 5K laps as possible within the four-hour time period. If they choose to drink an Oskar Blues beer prior to their lap, they get two-minutes deducted from their lap time. The team with the most laps wins. Those who’d rather spectate than participate can watch legendary mountain bike freeriding and trials rider, Jeff Lenosky, perform jaw-dropping, not-to-be-missed demos. Lenosky is a three-time National Champion and World Record Holder for the highest bunny hop on a mountain bike (45.5 inches).
This celebration of craft beer-in-a-can raises money for Can’d Aid Foundation. The CAN’d Aid Foundation is all about diggin’ in and makin’ a difference with their “do-goodery” program areas: Towns, Tunes, Treads + Trails and Love Yur Mama. The two-year-old public charity has raised nearly $2 million and has recently provided disaster relief assistance to South Carolina, North Texas and Flint, MI with fresh drinking water and rebuilding efforts through its “Towns” program. Look for additional events highlighting Can’d Aid Foundation’s community do-goodery to surround their April events, including bike builds & giveaways and free music workshops and instrument donations. Burning Can in CO and NC were called “7 don’t miss US beer fests” by CNN. Burning Can and Lyons Outdoor Games named USA TODAY 10 BEST “Greatest Beerfest in All the Land”.
