Oskar Blues Burning CanOskar Blues Burning Can Festival to feature 60+ Craft Breweries serving more than 200 Craft Styles

Lyons, COOskar Blues BURNING CAN Fest returns to celebrate CANned craft beers in the brewery’s original hometown of Lyons on May 30. More than 60 craft breweries will be serving up everything that craft beer-in-a-CAN offers: fresh, easily portable, and earth-friendly. The all-day festival also includes the Lyons Outdoor Games, The Beer Relay, and live tunes. New Orleans-based soul & blues act, The Revivalists, will continue the party with a free concert after the beer tasting to celebrate Oskar Blues’ recent launch in the band’s home state of Louisiana.

Live music is free and starts at 5 p.m. with local faves The Big Thompson Flood, followed by raucous Americana group Interstate Stash Express. Then The Revivalists take the stage at 8 p.m.

Oskar Blues Crowler will provide breweries that don’t CAN, but still want to pour at the Festival, a chance to fill CROWLERS with their own beers. A Crowler™ (CAN + growler) is a 32-ounce CAN filled with fresh craft beer from the source. It’s one of the newest innovations coming from Oskar Blues Brewery and development partner Ball Corporation–pioneers of the American craft beer in-a-CAN movement.

The beer fest part of Burning Can will take place from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. General admission tickets are $45 and include unlimited four-ounce samples, free entry into the Lyons Outdoor Games, and The Revivalists concert. VIP tickets are $60 and include a souvenir drinking glass, entry to the beer fest at 3 p.m. and a VIP badge.
