RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The largest canned beer festival in the world is taking place Saturday right here in the Biggest Little City.
The mission of Canfest is to give canned beer the attention it deserves. The night will include over 100 beers to sample -- many of which are not sold or distributed in Northern Nevada.
Canfest will take place at the Peppermill in the 6200 square foot Tuscany Ballroom and doors open at 6 p.m. Reno bike project is also teaming up with the Canfest, and if participants donate a bike to the bike project, they will receive a ticket to the event.
'I think we received about 150 bikes so far. I think we've handed out a little over 100 tickets, so it's been a smashing success," said Kurstin Graham, Reno Bike Project Manager.
Advance tickets are $35, for general admission and $60 for VIP tickets. You can buy yours at Craft Wine & Beer, Brew-Chatter or online through the Peppermill box office. $40 tickets are available at the door on Saturday.
