SanTan Brewing Company Launches Summer Seasonal, Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer in Cans Across Arizona, California & Texas Markets
Just in time for summer cookouts, pool parties and outdoor adventures, Mr. Pineapple returns – April 2014
Chandler, Arizona (March 13, 2014)— Nothing goes better with summertime fun than an ice cold can of SanTan Brewing Company’s award winning Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer. Originally created as a signature craft beer for SanTan Brewing Company’s annual Luau celebration, Mr. Pineapple’s popularity among craft beer lovers grew rapidly in his first few years of production. To meet increasing demand, SanTan began canning Mr. Pineapple in 2013 – making him easily portable and ready for summertime cookouts, pool parties, beach days and outdoor adventures.
Winner of the silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival competition, Mr. Pineapple is a refreshing and fruity traditional German Wheat Ale using 2-Row, White Wheat, Caramel and Munich malt. Fresh pineapple is added during the primary fermentation then crushed and cooled to allow the natural flavors to infuse the traditional wheat beer for a refreshing twist.
