The Cans Fest

What's more cool than seeing a bad ass craft beer in a fancy dressed up can that doesn't look like the usual littered Busch Light and Coors cans found at the side of a lake. Check out Portland's first Craft Canned Beer fest at the Guild Public House.

"The Guild Public House is pleased to announce The Cans Beer Fest to be held during Oregon Craft Brew Month in partnership with Ride On Portland. Admission is free and the event is open to all ages. The Cans Beer Fest will be held at 1101 East Burnside in Portland and is scheduled July 9th from noon until 10 pm.

The Cans Fest will feature beer from as far away as Colorado where Oskar Blues pioneered using cans for their product to local Oregon brewers, including Ft. George who just started selling beer in cans this spring. We’ll have an array of brews that will satisfy the most novice beer drinker and impress the aficionados in the crowd. We’ll be announcing the complete lineup soon, which will include beers not yet on the market.

The benefit of cans over bottles include better portability, being more environmentally friendly, keeping beer fresh longer, and getting cold much quicker than bottles. More than 100 American craft brewers have recognized these benefits and more in choosing to can their product instead of bottling.

Unlike most Fests, if festival attendees like a particular beer they will be able to purchase that beer to go from The Guild as they leave the event.

While admission is free, a tasting mug is required to sample beer. A mug cost $5 and tickets valid for one 4 ounce taste are $1 each.

Please also visit The Cans Fest Facebook page information on an ongoing basis."
