Oskar Blues Brewery BURNING CAN (notjusta) Beer Fest and CAN’d Aid Fundraiser
April 23rd, 2016 at Walter E Long Park Austin, Texas
The Burning Can (notjusta) Beer Fest is an outdoor music-soaked celebration of craft beer in a can, featuring beer sampling, spectator sports, The Beer Relay race, and live music by the Drive-By Truckers with all proceeds benefitting CAN’d Aid Foundation.
Burning Can also features participant and spectator sport competitions including The Beer Relay, a team trail running and beer drinking event. This four-hour competition is run in teams of two or four. Runners will complete as many 5k laps as possible within the four-hour time period. If they choose to drink Oskar Blues beer prior to their lap, they get two-minutes deducted from their lap time. The team with the most laps wins.
Those who’d rather spectate than participate can watch legendary mountain bike freeriding and trials rider, Jeff Lenosky, perform jaw-dropping, not-to-be-missed demos at 2:30PM, 4:00PM and 5:30PM. Lenosky is a three-time National Champion and World Record Holder for the highest bunny hop on a mountain bike (45.5 inches).
This celebration of craft beer-in-a-can raises money for Can’d Aid Foundation. The CAN’d Aid Foundation is all about diggin’ in and makin’ a difference with their “do-goodery” program areas: Towns, Tunes, Treads + Trails and Love Yur Mama. The two-year-old public charity has raised nearly $2 million and has recently provided disaster relief assistance to South Carolina, North Texas and Flint, MI with fresh drinking water and rebuilding efforts through its “Towns” program. Look for additional events highlighting Can’d Aid Foundation’s community do-goodery to surround their April events, including bike builds & giveaways and free music workshops and instrument donations.
Registration is open and tickets are on sale HERE.
