We have one goal: to give canned beer the spotlight it deserves.
CANFEST was not created just to be another beer festival. It is a celebration that gathers people together to crush any negative notions toward canned beer and have one night to bask in hundreds of craft canned beers from around the globe.

CANFEST is an unlimited tasting beer festival of beers poured exclusively from cans. Breweries from all corners of the U.S. (and some from around the world) come together for one night of indulgence. An attendee will typically find 100-120 different brews to sample. The VIP hour allows guests to enter the festival 1 hour early and includes a buffet-style dinner. General Admission still provides 5 hours of sampling time. In addition to beers, there is live music, a silent disco, vendors, and a raffle.
