CANFEST, the Original Canned Beer Festival Returns for a Fourth Year with Mammoth Brewing Company as Title SponsorTweet August 24, 2012
Great news out of Reno, NV…
(Reno, Nev., August 21, 2012)- The world’s first strictly canned beer festival, CANFEST, announces its return for a 4th year with a brand new title brewery sponsor, Mammoth Brewing Company, and the second annual bike drive.
CANFEST will take place on November 3rd inside the Reno Ballroom in downtown Reno, Nev. Supporters of craft beer in cans and industry respected Mammoth Brewing Company will step in for the first time to present the event. CANFEST expects to bring back favorites such as Oskar Blues, Caldera Brewing, 21st Amendment, Anderson Valley Brewing Company, and dozens more.
“We’re incredibly excited to have Mammoth join us for CANFEST this year,” said event co-organizer Ty Whitaker. “They have a phenomenal reputation in the craft beer world and as a brewery that looks to keep the trend going, we couldn’t ask for a more appropriate CANFEST affiliate.”
CANFEST launched in 2009 to celebrate and showcase the uprising of craft beers in cans. Long viewed as a staple of cheap, poor quality beer, cans are quickly becoming a popular and effective method for packaging craft beers.
Tickets for the event will go on sale September 1st through the Silver Legacy box office and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door.
CANFEST benefits the Reno Bike Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit community bicycle shop and advocacy group. Bikes and beer are an ideal fit and the RBP represents an eco-related cause, CANFEST will once again launch a bike drive with RBP where every bicycle donation made in the name of CANFEST will be rewarded with a complimentary ticket. That promotion will launch on Sept 5th and continue for one month. For more information on the bike drive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information will follow.
In addition, CANFEST is also presented by The Abbi Agency, a Reno-based public relations and marketing firm, and hosted by the Silver Legacy Resort & Casino. Room packages will be available starting in September.

Mammoth Brewing Company is the highest elevation brewery on the West Coast (at 8,000 ft) and has been brewing award-winning beers since 1995. Because of their strong love for outdoor recreation and immediate access to the High Sierra backcountry, MBC decided to start packaging their beers into efficient, easily-transportable aluminum cans in 2007. MBC beers are only distributed and available in the High Sierra communities of California and Nevada. For more information about Mammoth Brewing Company, please visit www.mammothbrewingco.com
