Join Oskar Blues on Saturday, May 30th as they host their 4th annual Burning Can ExtravCANza! This event celebrates canned beer and its benefits to the brewing industry. More than 50 craft breweries from around the country will be sampling their canned brews. Breweries that don’t CAN also have a chance to serve their beers at the festival due to a recent innovation from Oskar Blues Brewery and development partner Ball Corporation. The Crowler™ (CAN + growler), as it has been coined, is a 32-ounce CAN that can be filled with fresh craft beer from the source.

Each brewery will enter one beer to potentially be named “King of the Can”. This first-time beer competition is a ‘People’s Choice Award’ that goes to THE best craft beer in a can. Attendees will get the chance to vote for their favorite canned beer between 3:00pm and 5:00pm and the winning brewery of the beer with the most votes will be crowned “King of the Can!.”

Also new this year is Colorado’s first ever endurance drinking and trail running race; aka The Beer Relay. For 6 hours, starting at 10:00am, Teams of 2 or more will be running a beautiful 5K trail loop. Before each lap, you have the option to drink a 12 ounce Oskar Blues beer for 2 minutes off your lap time. The Beer Relay is hosted by the Lyons Outdoor Games along with a variety of other athletic competitions which include: Pro Kayaking, Outlaws of Dirt (Bike Jump Competitions), and Sunrise Yoga and Acriyoga.

Burning Can proceeds benefit Can’d Aid, the non-profit side of Oskar Blues Brewery and public charity dedicated to giving back and making a difference. Last year’s event raised over $45,000 dollars, which has been beneficial in helping rebuild the town of Lyons.
