Birthplace of Oskar Blues Brewery and the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Lyons, CO is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and beer lovers alike. The collaboration between the Town of Lyons and Oskar Blues to produce Burning Can Fest 2017 at the Outdoor Games is the perfect culmination of both.
