Send Jim to Canfest!

Buckbean Brewing is holding its first ever Canfest competition.  This is a two day conference in Reno, NV “The Biggest Little City In The World.”  This will bring craft brewers that put beer in cans from around the nation for this event and should be generally a great time.

If he wins (You have to vote for him for him to win) he gets an all expenses paid trip to the festival and a seat on the judges panel for a canned beer competition.

So get out there and vote.  Here is the Facebook link for the poll, and here’s the PollDaddy site. Either one works.

If you’re interested, he’s in the running because he wrote a post about why he should be able to go to Canfest.  Here is his post.’t-deserve-to-go-to-canfest/

He did a great job with this post and I think his efforts should be rewarded!

Tell your friends and let’s get Jim to Canfest!

    Jim – maybe whiskey goggles. A friend of mine is going there this weekend for the annual Rib Cook off. She says they call it the ‘Rib Cook Off’ because ‘White Trash Festival’ doesn’t have the same appeal in writing….

    I’ll have to think about this one. A few other people are clamoring for my vote as well. Jim did give me a nice back rub though, so I guess I owe him.

    @Jim & @Don – If ya’ll do end up going do let me know! I rather sure I’ll end up going and we would love to meet all the beer bloggers that I can!

    Will you guys be attending the Beer Bloggers Conference in Boulder in November?

      We’ll certainly let you know if we make it, but it’s gonna take a lot of votes at this point! Unfortunately we are not going to the craft beer bloggers conference in Boulder. We had to choose between that and the GABF and that’s an easy pick. 🙂

        @Jim – Ok…that’s true…it’s not really a contest 😉

        Couldn’t make it out this year, but next year I shall!

        Anyways, keep me updated guys.
