Mission
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.

Description
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.

Objectives
To raise awareness of the awesomeness of canned beer
To showcase the vast amount of canned beer options and craft breweries
To celebrate canned beer with those that pioneered the packaging
To raise awareness for and benefit our local nonprofit partner & community bike shop, The Reno Bike Project
To drink and dance and be super happy with our friends from Reno & beyond
To award medals to breweries for their superior quality brews. Our competition is BCJP certified.

Offerings
3 Levels of tickets: VIP, GA and Student (valid for 21+ UNR and TMCC students)
Over 100 beers to sample, many of which are not sold or distributed in Northern Nevada
Music from a live band, DJ, and a silent disco for your dancing pleasure
Vendors
VIP on-site dinner
The Reno Bike Project fun and games

Outcomes

Taste award-winning brews from cans
Sample beers that are only in the area for one night
Meet awesome brewers and brewery reps
