Cans 4 Kids Fundraising Event @ Coalition Brewing

December 9, 2012 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm

Northwest Canning, the PacificNorthwest Canning NW’s first mobile canning business has teamed with Coalition Brewing, a local micro-brewery, and Envision Ambiance, a local event planning company, to host the Cans 4 Kids fundraiser benefiting the non-profit Outside In.

For a small fee(see below) home brewers can bring their beer and have it canned by NW Canning’s mobile machine.  Non-home brewers can also get in on the action by coming to hang out at Coalition’s Pub where a portion of beer and food sales will go to the charity as well. About the charity – Outside In is a Portland non-profit helping at-risk homeless youth get off the streets and on to a better life. To get more information you can visit their website at www.outsidein.org.

To sign-up for canning, send an email to envisionamabiance@gmail.com or RSVP via Facebook to tell us how much beer you are bringing and your preference for a time (will try to accommodate everyone at your chosen times).

Below are the fees to can your beer.

$25 for 5gal (about 40 16oz cans)
$65 for 15gal (about 120 16oz cans)

Note to brewers: You will need to bring your beer in corny or sankey kegs. Also we will not can any beers Wild Beers (those made with Brett, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brettanomyces).  Your beer should also be carbonated ahead of time.

Custom labels – We have created custom labels for the 16oz. cans. They include the name of our event, the logos of our sponsors, and a space for home brewers to write their name and style of beer they’ve created!
