Professionally produced by HDE Agency in partnership with SanTan Brewing Company, the award winning, 7th annual ameriCAN™ Canned Craft Beer Festival is expanding to a new location this year at the Margaret T. Hance Park in Phoenix. With so much more room for activities and centrally located in the heart of Phoenix, the new location will allow for more beer, food, and fun.
Celebrating the canned craft beer revolution, ameriCAN™ is set for Saturday, May 13th from noon – 6 p.m. Featuring more than 250 canned craft beers from over 100 local and national breweries across 40 states, including beers not previously available in the state of Arizona. Other highlights include live music, food, a beer science garden, seminars, beer Olympic games and a rare beer garden.
ameriCAN™ isn’t just a festival, it’s also a competition! The week before the festival, more than 40 certified craft beer judges will gather to taste and vote for their favorites in nine categories including 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. Gold, silver and bronze winners will be announced via live stream on May 6th at www.cannedcraftbeerfest.com.
