AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Festival to Stream Awards
Ceremony Online

Best canned beers will be honored at a special ceremony THIS Sunday, and YOU can view the ceremony at www.cannedcraftbeerfest.com

Chandler, Ariz. – May 13, 2011 – The Ameri”CAN” Canned Craft Beer Festival, presented by Whole Foods Market, will host its awards ceremony on Sunday, May 15, and the event will be streamed online at www.cannedcraftbeerfest.com. The judging session will take place from 9 am - 4 pm on May 15. A private Awards Dinner is scheduled from 5 pm-8 pm from the Courtyard Marriott Chandler Fashion Center, but is closed to the public. Anthony Canecchia, the owner and head brew master of SanTan Brewing Company, will emcee the awards ceremony.

The awards ceremony will precede the inaugural Ameri”CAN” Canned Craft Beer Festival scheduled for Saturday, May 21, 2011, from 2 pm through 6 pm in Historic Downtown Chandler, AJ Chandler Park West (3 S. San Marcos Place). Both events conclude American Craft Beer Week.

Select canned beers will receive Gold, Silver and Bronze medals awarded in nine categories: IPA; American Pale Ale; English Pale Ale; Wheat Beers; Stouts and Porters; Ambers and Browns; Golds, Blondes, Pilsners and Light Lagers; Fruit; and Specialty Beer.

All beer will be judged according to the 2011 Beer Style Guidelines. All judges are professional brewers, BJCP certified or Cicerones certified. The ACCBF awards medals for excellence in 10 categories and does not necessarily award medals to the top three finishers in a particular category. When judges decide a category contains three excellent examples of the style, they award gold, silver and bronze medals for the first, second and third place beers, respectively.

Gold - A world-class beer that accurately exemplifies the specified style, displaying the proper balance of taste, aroma and appearance.

Silver - An excellent beer that may vary slightly from style parameters while maintaining close adherence to the style and displaying excellent taste, aroma and appearance.

Bronze - A fine example of the style that may vary slightly from style parameters and/or have minor deviations in taste, aroma or appearance.

If judges believe that no beer in the category meets the quality and style-accuracy criteria, they may elect not to award a medal. Judges may award a beer with a silver or bronze medal and yet not award a gold medal.

An unprecedented lineup of national and local breweries will participate in the competition including 21st Amendment Brewing (CA), Anderson Valley Brewing Company (CA), Bavik (Belgium), Baxter (ME), Big Sky Brewing Company (MT), Blue Moon Brewing Company (CO), Bohemian (UT), Breckenridge Brewing (CO), Buckbean (NV), Caldera (OR), Crispin Cider (MN), Four Peaks Brewing (AZ), Grand Canyon Brewing (AZ), Leinenkugel’s (WI), Lumberyard Brewing (AZ), Mammoth (CA), Maui Brewing (HI), Mogollon Brewing Co.
