Canned craft beer getting its showcase

CANFEST, the first international craft beer judging and tasting for canned beer, is being readied for Reno, NV.

The Buckbean Brewing Company, Nevada’s largest production microbrewery, will host the event at the Grand Sierra Resort & Casino on October 23. Proceeds will benefit The Nature Conservancy and the Great Basin Bird Observatory.

Other brewers scheduled to participate include the Big Sky Brewing Company, Oskar Blues, Ukiah Brewing Company, Maui Brewing Company, Surly Brewing Company, New Belgium Brewing Company, Uncommon Brewers, and Rochester Mills Brewing Company. Others may be added before the event judging.

Judging will take place prior to the public tasting, based on categories to be determined. Beer seminars, beer and food pairings and a forum of brewers who can beer are planned.

Ticket prices are $35 per person and room packages will be available for attendees.

Buckbean produces its two signature beers, Original Orange Blossom Ale and Black Noddy Lager, in 16-ounce, environmentally-friendly cans.
