With the expansion of global beer culture, craft beer festivals have been popping up all across the world. However, Vancouver, Canada is looking to set its craft beer scene apart with 'CanCity,' an event that exclusively celebrates only beers that are craft and canned.
Part of the reason the organizers are launching CanCity is to break some of the assumptions that consumers have with bottled beer being "more craft" than brews packaged in cans.
The six-hour sampling event hosted at Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza will feature interactive games, beer can art installations, music, food trucks and 20 breweries showcasing their best canned craft beers. Unique varieties available will include options like the Cucumber Sour Ale that's being co-created by Hearthstone Brewery and West Coast Canning.
