The Can Can Awards is the premier beer competition focused solely on canned craft beers. In our 4th year, over 450 beers were entered from across the globe.


Judging took place over 2 days in Atlanta, Georgia. The Can Can Awards competition was sanctioned by the BJCP. Judges were not allowed to judge beers in which they had an affiliation and judged all beers in blind taste tests. Medals were not awarded to any beers scoring less than 30 out of 50. Here is the full list of 2019 winners. For breweries looking to promote their medals, please visit this page for free downloadable resources.
