CANFEST tickets are now on sale!
Taste an eclectic collection of canned beer at Reno’s CANFEST
Tickets are on sale now for the 3rd annual international canned beer festival
RENO, NV – CANFEST, the world’s first international canned beer festival, is bringing the can back in style, proving to consumers that some of the world’s most unique combinations of hops and malts are now available in a new generation of canned beer.
CANFEST will showcase an alluring variety of canned beers in the Reno Ballroom for the third consecutive year on November 12. Tickets are on sale for the event now.
With each $25 ticket, attendees will receive unlimited tastings from a diverse collection of brewers including Big Sky Brewing Co., Oskar Blues Brewery, Anderson Valley Brewing Co., Tallgrass Brewing Co., Santa Fe Brewing Co., and many more. Many brews sampled at the event are unavailable in the immediate Western region of the U.S.
“CANFEST provides beer enthusiasts opportunities to taste anything from a Montana pale ale, Colorado traditional pilsner, and West Coast unfiltered Porters, all in one place,” said Doug Booth, co-founder of Buckbean Brewing, organizer of the event. “Once people see the variety available in cans, their perception of canned beer will never be the same.”
CANFEST is made possible by event sponsors The Aluminum Association, Mutineer Magazine, Buckbean Brewing Co., Abbi Public Relations, The Silver Legacy Resort & Casino, Wound-Up Studio, and Bourns Productions.
Buckbean Brewing, the largest production microbrewery in Western Nevada, founded CANFEST in 2008 to celebrate the benefits of canning beer. Long regarded as a symbol of inferior beer, the can has come into its own in recent years as beer drinkers realize that cans offer superior protection from sunlight and oxygen infiltration, and the containers are much more portable and environmentally friendly than their glass counterpart. In 2002, the first microbrewery began canning craft beer; today over 130 breweries can at least one of their beers, according to the CraftCans.com database.
Tickets purchased online prior to the event are $25. As an incentive to buy early, if you purchase before October 13 it’s automatically a VIP ticket, no price difference. A VIP ticket to the only international canned beer festival in the world allows guests to enter the festival one hour early, where you can participate in Mutineer magazine’s VIP hour, and sample the wide collection of brews before general ticket holders. To purchase tickets online visit Ticketmaster.com or the Silver Legacy’s onsite box office.

“CANFEST gives beer lovers the chance to jump between tasting Minnesota IPAs, West Coast unfiltered Porters and Hawaiian blonde ales made with Munich malts — all under one roof,” said Doug Booth, co-founder of Buckbean Brewing, which is organizing the event. “And once people learn that all of that beer comes in a can, people’s perception of canned beer will be blown apart.”
The beer fest is made possible by event sponsors That Can Holder, Hi-Cone/Mumm Products, Ball, Digiprint, Wild 102.9, Abbi PR, and Bourns Productions. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit The Nature Conservancy and the Great Basin Bird Observatory.

Buckbean Brewing, the largest production microbrewery in Western Nevada, founded CANFEST last year to celebrate the benefits of canning beer. Long regarded as a symbol of inferior beer, the can has come into its own in recent years as beer drinkers realize that cans offer superior protection from sunlight and oxygen infiltration, and the containers are much more portable and environmentally friendly than their glass counterpart. In 2002 the first microbrewery began canning craft beer; today over 52 microbreweries offer their brews in a can, according to the Brewers Association.
Buckbean started canning unique microbrews in Reno in 2008. Their beer — from a crisp, dark German Schwarzbier called the Black Noddy Lager to the summertime favorite Original Orange Blossom Ale — represents co-founders Doug Booth and Dan Kahn’s outside-of-the-box thinking on everything from brewing ingredients to the container the beer is packaged in — 16-oz. beer cans.
Tickets purchased online prior to the event are $30, tickets purchased at the door will cost $35. To purchase tickets online go HERE!
