Oskar Blues brought another Burning Can festival to Bohn Park in Lyons on Saturday. This was the fourth year in a row that the brewery that pioneered canned craft beer gathered several dozen other breweries from around the country who package their brews in outdoors-friendly, recyclable aluminum cans. And to prove that nothing goes better with fun in the sun than cold canned beer, the festival also featured kayaking, dirt bikes, live music and camping. Here are a few photos from Burning Can bystander Aaron Thackeray. For more, see our complete slideshow.
