Portland's very own canned beer festival has been a long time coming. With Reno, NV's success with a canned beer festival and a similar event in Arizona, it was only a matter of time. As the fast adoption of cans by craft breweries continues worldwide, many Oregon brewers are on the forefront.
Ever since opening earlier this year, The Guild Public House in the Rocket building on 11th and E. Burnside has made an emphasis on two things: sustainable and political non-profits and great craft beer. Those may seem like an odd combo, but here in Portland where most of us are liberals and we all love good beer, it actually is a perfect fit. The Cans Fest is the brainchild of owner Jesse Cornett, who undoubtedly will continue to push the envelope with future craft beer events.
