RARA-AVIS: canned heat?

I'm reading Robert Polito's exellent biography of Jim Thompson at the moment. He mentions that when Thompson was a hobo he was sometimes reduced to drinking moonshine, white lightning, 'canned heat.' Can any rara-avians tell me what exactly is 'canned heat'?

Please note I'm making this enquiry out of curiosity and not thirst.
