Award Winning Seasonal, Mr. Pineapple Wheat Ale, Makes its Debut in a Can
SanTan Brewing packs pineapple goodness into a can this spring, hitting the Arizona market in March
Chandler, Arizona (March 12, 2013)—SanTan Brewing Company’s summer seasonal, Mr. Pineapple Wheat Ale is back and available in the can! Just in time for summer camping trips and cookouts, Mr. Pineapple hits stores in late March.
Winner of a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival competition, Mr. Pineapple is a refreshing and fruity traditional German Wheat ale using white wheat, two-row and Munich malt. It was originally developed as a signature brew for SanTan Brewing Company’s annual Luau celebration during the hot summer months in Arizona. 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. Mr. Pineapple is made with Columbus hops, German wheat and has a hazy straw gold color boasting a 5% ABV and 20 IBU.
12 oz cans of Mr. Pineapple will be available at valley craft beer retailers by the end of March through September, 2013.
In November, 2012, SanTan Brewing Company launched Arizona’s first ever seasonal canned beer series with the introduction of Rail Slide Imperial Spiced Ale. Mr. Pineapple is the third seasonal brew to don an aluminum suit.
