Proof positive that canned beer is well and truly on the ascendancy in the United States, the fourth annual AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Festival will be held this weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The festival aims to showcase the best American craft tinnies – and while it’s unlikely that you’ll have time to organise a trip to Arizona before the festival kicks off on Saturday, we can still let you know who the winners of the judging are for this year’s event.
