canjamI’m sure if you did a very intensive search of STL Hops, you’d find many, many posts detailing my love of canned beer. So, I won’t bore you again with all of the reasons canned beer is awesome, instead I’m hoping you find out for yourself.

This Saturday, April 30th from 1pm-6pm, Global Brew in Rock Hill is throwing their inaugural Can Jam celebration. Global GM Cyle Lunsfordhodson wanted to put on a festival to not only serve up some tasty beer, but also, in Cyle’s words, “to shine a spotlight to show that great craft beer comes in cans as well.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Some of the participating breweries include, Oskar Blues, Ballast Point, Odell, Logboat, and of course local canned favorite, 4 Hands.

This party will also serve a dual purpose providing Rock Hill with a fun block party for the area featuring some tasty food from some area vendors including Katie’s Pizza & Pasta, The Slider House, and Lucky’s Market.

And if this wasn’t fun enough, Cyle will open a really big can (aka keg) of Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout at 3pm.  There will be live music along with some fun lawn games as well.

So head out to Rock Hill and enjoy the weather and canned beer this Saturday.
