WIN TICKETS To Burning Can beer festival at Oskar Blues in Brevard


Here’s your chance to win tickets to the second annual Burning Can beer festival at Oskar Blues in Brevard. Leave a comment on this post to be entered to win.

The event begins with a free concert at the Oskar Blues REEB Ranch, an event headlined by Asheville favorite Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band. The headliner for Saturday’s music is Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

More than 50 regionally and nationally distributed craft breweries that can their beer will be represented at the event. And for the first time, festival-goers will be able to camp on the grounds of the REEB Ranch.

Here’s the full press release:

Funk/rockjazz/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, and 30 miles down the road from beer-centric Asheville.

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. Tickets are now available here!

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 North Carolina.

Tickets are required for all Saturday festivities.

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.

For the first time, festival attendees can camp on the grounds of the historic 145-acre Oskar Blues REEB Ranch for the entire weekend and enjoy the festivities safely with no interruptions. Camping tickets cover both Friday and Saturday nights and include access to the beer festival, the dirt jump competition and the world-class concert on Saturday for $60.

The REEB Ranch was thrust onto the national scene with 3,000+ spectators at the ultimate BMX dirt jump competition, Red Bull Dreamline, in late 2014, and the property features a bike park unparalleled on the East Coast. Burning Can will pick up where Dreamline left off by hosting the Outlaws of Dirt BMX and MTB dirt jumping competition all day on Saturday. The only national dirt jump series in the U.S ., the competition will crown its champion on the red clay at the REEB Ranch during Burning Can North Carolina.

In addition to spectating, there will be many opportunities to participate in sports and outdoor adventures. The Beer Relay, an endurance trail-running and beer-drinking race, will take place on Saturday. The six-hour competition can be run relay-style or solo. Runners complete as many 5K laps as possible, and if they choose to drink a 12-ounce can of Oskar Blues beer prior to each lap, they earn a two-minute time deduction.

Also on Saturday morning, there will be multiple opportunities to get out and enjoy the ridiculously beautiful land surrounding the REEB Ranch. Pisgah Cycling, a local bike club, will host both a mountain bike group ride and a road bike group ride. MountainTrue will guide a group paddle trip down the French Broad River. More info to come. Everyone will be back in time for the beer festival!

Burning Can N.C. is a fundraiser for Oskar Blues CAN’d Aid Foundation and Mountain True (formerly WNC Alliance). Proceeds from the beer festival will benefit these two regional nonprofits.
