Lyons, Colorado & Brevard, North Carolina — Oskar Blues Brewery is excited to announce that not one, but TWO, Burning Can Beer Festivals will bring fresh craft beer, live music, outdoor adventure challenges, and more–to the brewery’s homes in BOTH ColoRADo and North Carolina in 2014.
The inaugural Burning Can Brevard Festival will take place on the grounds of the North Carolina brewery on Saturday, July 5, and will benefit the CAN’d Aid Foundation and Western North Carolina Alliance.
Burning CAN Lyons, as part of the Lyons Outdoor Games, comes to the high country of Colorado on Saturday, May 31, and will benefit the Colorado Brewers Guild and The Town of Lyons Parks & Recreation Department.
Burning Can Brevard will integrate the Pisgah Omnium, a weekend of bike races and rides, into the festival, including a road race that will begin and end at the brewery, while Burning Can Colorado adds a national craft beer influence to the world-class events of the Lyons Outdoor Games (May 30 to June 1).
Both festivals will offer beer tastes from more than 35 local, regional and national breweries that have joined the CAN Revolution.
Many more details will be announced, but please save the dates (May 31 in Colorado and July 5 in North Carolina) and join us for some kickass brews & tunes. Bring your bike!
About Oskar Blues Brewery
Founded as a brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft beer-in-a-can apocalypse in 2002 using a tabletop machine that sealed one can at a time. In 2008, the makers of the top-selling pale ale in ColoRADo, Dale’s Pale Ale, moved into a 35,000-square-foot facility in Longmont, ColoRADo. The brewery has since experienced explosive growth—packaging 59,000 barrels of beer in 2011 and 86,750 barrels in 2012. In December of 2012, Oskar Blues opened the doors to an additional brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. Together, the breweries packaged 119,000 barrels of beer in 2013, distributing its trailblazing craft brews to 31 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.
