(Brevard, NC) – Oskar Blues BURNING CAN will celebrate CANned craft beer in all its glory for the second year in a row in North Carolina.
Funk/Jazz/Hip-hop sensations Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will headline a weekend chock full of live music best enjoyed with a cold craft beer in hand. This year’s festivities will take place at the REEB Ranch, just 8 miles from Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC, and 30 miles down the road from beer-centric Asheville, NC.
BURNING CAN condenses what’s best about the craft can lifestyle into a multi-day outdoor festival with national touring bands, 50+ of the best canning breweries from around the country, camping, a Beer Relay competitive trail run, paddle trips, group rides, and a premier dirt-jumping competition.
A free concert at the REEB Ranch on Friday evening, July 17, will be kicked off by progressive Southern rockers Porch 40 and headlined by local funk faves, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. Starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 18, the Ranch will be shaken to its roots by Travers Brothership, Jarekus Singleton, the Grammy award-winning Rebirth Brass Band and the internationally-touring act Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. Building on four years of funky Southern acts at the original BURNING CAN in Colorado, Oskar Blues is psyched to welcome award-winning New Orleans native Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue to this corner of NC.
More than 50 regionally and nationally distributed craft breweries that CAN their beer will pour up to 125 varieties of the good stuff for thirsty festival attendees from 2-6 p.m. on Saturday. Oskar Blues beer will be for sale all weekend. Camping will also be available for the weekend.
