As if the beer world needed more festivals! Now can beer festivals are sprouting everywhere. But this one sounds really good. Too bad I won’t be in Colorado until the Beer Blogger conference in the fall.
Here is the 411, straight from the brewery website:
Oskar Blues invites you to join the EVOLUTION of craft beer with the initial all Canned Beer Ragbag at its roots, Lyons, CO. Under the backdrop of Rocky Mountain National Park, Burning Can offers up the future prospect of craft beer civilization by pulling all the plugs on beer traditions. Craft Beer from (15ish) Canning Pioneers, Live Music by Nashville’s Bonepony www.bonepony.com, Can Art, Beer Can Chicken & other beer-infused dishes collide to create an inaugural event sure to shake the status quo the way canned beer was meant to.
This free spirited poke has its soul in the right spot….All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Colorado Brewers Guild www.coloradobeer.org & its continued fight to keep Colorado beer culture alive!
Eco-Cycle www.ecocycle.org is in the house to ensure the environmental advantages of the can keep Ma Nature happy as cans take care of keeping the beer fresher, longer than bottles & making it portable to keep up with your next movement, regardless where or what it is.
Walk away from this celebration with a rattled hominid cranium full of how far craft beer in a can has come, a soul full of roots music & full belly of beer can chicken. You also walk with Inaugural BURNING CAN collectors swag knowing the entire shindig helps keep Colorado beer culture kicking. Wait…did I mention the mechanical bull????
