Oskar Blues Brewery hosted its 2015 Burning Can ExtravaCANza Friday and Saturday, July 17-18, at its REEB Ranch just outside of Hendersonville. This year’s festival followed up last summer’s inaugural event with a Beer Relay, an Outlaws of Dirt BMX jam and live music from Travers Brothership, Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics, Jarekus Singleton, the Rebirth Brass Band and Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. In addition, local food vendors and over 50 craft breweries from across the U.S. came out to show off their bites and brews.

Despite some complications with the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Department (which threatened several out-of-state brewers with citations Friday night), a few thunderstorms and a blistering-hot afternoon sun, brewers, performers and attendees stuck it out and had a ball.
