85th Beer Can Appreciation Day: Enter Your Art!

Paradiso Hosts its First Beer Can Art Contest on January 25In honor of Pizzeria Paradiso’s Beer Can Art Contest celebrating 85 years of canned beer we are going to donate 20 cents to Art Works Now for every can of beer purchased at Pizzeria Paradiso January 11-25.


The art must be made primarily of craft beer cans. Other material may be used to reinforce, create structure or as an adhesive. The art work should have a footprint no larger then 3×3 feet and be no more than 3 feet in height. All pieces must be submitted by January 24th to our Old Town location.

  • To enter the contest email with your name and contact info.
  • If beer cans are needed please feel free to stop by any of our locations and ask. If you have a can of beer when you visit that’s two birds with one stone!

First place prize is one pizza a week for a whole year at any of our Pizzeria Paradiso locations. You will also be receiving a signed copy of “Canned!” by Russ Phillips and your art will be displayed at one of our locations for the year. First place will be awarded based on the results of our qualified judges.

Second place prize is a $50 gift certificate to Pizzeria Paradiso and a signed copy of “Canned!” By Russ Phillips. Second place will be determined by popular vote the night of the 25th during judge deliberation.

(In the event that the popular vote goes to the same piece that has won first place the runner up for popular vote will take second place.)
