Stop eating sand and doing that stupid dance! I said Burning CAN!

Burning Can! Just like Burning Man except without all of the wierdos. Well… um… That might not be the right way to put that at all. I mean, the event is in Lyons, there will definitely be weirdos. Anyway, this Saturday, June 9, Oskar Blues is having a festival for those of us that love canned beer. Check below for a list of breweries that are showing up.

This is the second time this festival has been held. They skipped last year for one reason or another but the one held in 2010 was a great time. It was a lovely day in the park, the food was great and of course there were tasty beers. At the time, the list of breweries with beer in cans was a lot shorter but there were excellent choices to be had. I am pretty excited about heading up this weekend to check out the beery treats this time around. I also heard a rumor that you just might find the Gubna himself running around the festival.

This year, Burning Can is being held in conjunction with The Lyons Outdoor Games, which looks to be an exhibition of all of the mountain sports that Lyons is a hub for. Also: BMX dirt jumping! How can you go wrong? For those masochists out there, there is a 5K that you can run as well. For tubby fellows like me, do not forget about the pinball museum, it is awesome.

    Do you know if it’s tasters or if they’re just handing you cans?
