Jun 15 2016, 11:42 pm

Vancouver will host yet another beer festival this summer, when the inaugural CANcity, an all-craft, all-canned beer and cider tasting event, comes to Downtown Vancouver.

Attendees to this beer fest can enjoy 4oz samples of BC’s best canned craft beer and cider, outdoor games, can art installments, a can label art gallery, and much more.

Local musicians will be providing the soundtrack for the afternoon, and a few of Vancouver’s finest food trucks (including Vij’s Express Food truck) will be on hand to enable delicious beer and food matching.
