CANFEST, the Original International Canned Beer Festival, will return to Reno  Aug. 27. Dedicated to giving canned beer from around the world the spotlight it deserves, CANFEST is an unlimited tasting festival for beers poured exclusively from cans.

The event will offer more than 100 international canned beers to sample, many of which are available in northern Nevada exclusively for the event. Award-winning breweries from around the world participate, such as Lagunitas Brewing Company, Coronado Brewing Company, Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company and many others.

Local artists like Bazooka Zoo will be there plus a DJ and a silent disco. An ice cream bike and canned beer pong add an interactive element to the event, creating an atmosphere of fun and indulgence in the world’s finest canned beers.

Cans for a cause

A portion of CANFEST’s proceeds also benefit local nonprofit partner, The Reno Bike Project, in order to support its two-wheeled mission of creating a cycle-friendly community through education, cooperation and advocacy. The event will offer five hours of beer-sampling and live music to general admission attendees, and an extra hour including a buffet-style dinner to VIP ticket holders.

St. Archer Beer Dinner

CANFEST’s Beer Dinner is 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 26 and will feature Saint Archer’s exclusive canned beers paired with a menu from Roundabout Grill for an evening of indulgence in Reno’s finest food and drink. Tickets are $55 per person and can be purchased here.
