The Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association will launch the first ever Canadian American Beer Festival on April 7th 2018 at the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls from 3-7PM. This will be a regional beer event featuring:
- 20 Ontario brews made in collaboration with 20 visiting WNY breweries
- 20 WNY brews made in collaboration with 20 visiting Ontario breweries
These and other beers will be served at the event. The focus of the inaugural year will be on these cross-border brewing collabs involving the making of as many as 40 unique collab brews. This highlights the great breweries, the exciting craft beer potential, and the many international friendships that exist in our bi-national region.
Can Am 2018 is the first iteration of what we hope will grow into a very large annual beer festival and beer competition taking place on both sides of the border in both Niagara Falls USA and Niagara Falls Ontario. We believe Can Am can become one of the biggest and best North American beer festivals with hundreds craft breweries, several days of festivities, and a prominent highly-anticipated beer competition. As the saying goes, every long journey begins with a single step — and CanAm 2018 is just that. Check back here and at the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association website often for updates.
CanAm is organized by the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association with the help of the Ontario Craft Brewers, Niagara College Teaching Brewery, Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, Consumers Beverages, Buffalo Beer League, E3 Communications, Boost PR, Step Out Buffalo, the Albino Rhino, and other organizations to be announced.
