About Can Can Awards

Judging at the Can Can Awards beer competition

The Can Can Awards invites beer industry professionals to blindly sample canned beers submitted from breweries and brewpubs around the world. Each beer submitted is submitted in a specific category. Our Judges Panel sips submitted beers in order to award Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to the three beers that best represent each individual category of beers.

Beers are assigned to Judges with specific and applicable experience with the particular category in question. Judges are never able to judge their own products or any products with any relation to them.

The Can Can Awards competition is sanctioned by the BJCP each year.
