AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Festival Winners Announced: CANgratulations are in order!

​The AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Festival comes in two parts. The festival portion -- wherein we all get to taste the canned goodness -- will go down this Saturday. The judging portion, for which certified tasters from around the Valley were gathered to review beers sent by breweries far and wide, happened yesterday.

In a special ceremony streamed online, Anthony Canecchia of SanTan Brewing Co. announced the winners of the judging session. Because SanTan's hosting the festival, none of their beers were entered in the competition.
