Smart bets: Burning CAN

The can part of Burning CAN Beer Fest at Oskar Blues in Brevard is easy — more than 30 breweries that can their beer will be on hand to share craft brews. As far as the burning part, it’s unlikely to refer to the wares of local food trucks at the event. It might, however, have something to do with the fiery music: the day’s lineup starts with “the guitar-driven blues of The Marcus King Band then segues into the rocking vocal harmonies of the charismatic Atlanta-based Shadowboxers,” according to a press release. “The day will culminate with a performance by hometown funky favorites The Jeff Sipe Trio.” Partial proceeds from the festival benefit Western North Carolina Alliance. Saturday, July 5. Events being at 9 a.m., beer tastings at 1 p.m. and music at 2 p.m. $30 advance. $35 day of, $15 designated drivers. Photo of the Shadowboxers courtesy of the band
