Canned is king!
Canned beer gets its due at CANFEST, the world’s first festival devoted strictly to canned suds, 6 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Reno Ballroom at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino, 407 N. Virginia St., Reno. (At left, a scene from the 2011 CANFEST taken by Jeff Dow.)
Brewers Oskar Blues, 21st Amendment and Anderson Valley will be returning to CANFEST, now in its fourth year, along with Mammoth Brewing Company, the event’s new title brewery sponsor.
“We’re incredibly excited to have Mammoth join us for CANFEST this year,” Ty Whitaker, event co-organizer, said. “They have a phenomenal reputation in the craft beer world and as a brewery that looks to keep the trend going, we couldn’t ask for a more appropriate CANFEST affiliate.”
Also look for Big Sky Brewing Company, Bohemian Brewery, Boulder Beer, Fort George Brewery & Public House, Golden Road Brewing, High Noon Saloon & Brewery, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Moab Brewery, Payette Brewing Company, Santa Fe Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Sixpoint Brewery, Ska Brewery, Sun King Brewing Company and Uncommon Brewers.
Tickets cost $25 in advance, $35 at the door and are at the Silver Legacy or Ticketmaster. Proceeds benefit the Reno Bike Project, a nonprofit dedicated to created a cycling-friendly community in the Truckee Meadows.
