CHICAGO, March 19, 2013
CHICAGO, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Just in time for summer camping trips
and cookouts, SanTan Brewing Company's award-winning summer seasonal Mr.
Pineapple Wheat Ale is back and available now in 12oz. Rexam cans.
Winner of a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival competition,
Mr. Pineapple is a refreshing and fruity traditional German Wheat ale with
natural pineapple juice added. It was originally developed as a signature brew
for SanTan Brewing Company's annual Luau celebration during the summer months
in Arizona. Mr. Pineapple has a hazy straw gold color and is five percent
alcohol by volume (ABV).
"We are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to take our perfect
summer seasonal brew with them on their outdoor adventures," said Anthony
Canecchia, owner and head brewmaster of SanTan Brewing Company. "And by
teaming with Rexam, we are able to meet the growing demand for our products
across Arizona and beyond in the most recycled beverage package."
The company chose Rexam cans because they help its beers stand out in a
crowded marketplace. SanTan also benefits from the many advantages that
aluminum cans deliver for beer including durability, portability and light
barrier properties that preserve freshness. In addition, cans are the best
sustainability choice with a recycle rate at more than double other beverage
"It is a pleasure to continue our partnership with SanTan Brewing Company as
they expand their product line," said Rich Grimley, president and CEO, Rexam
Beverage Can North America. "The aluminum can is the perfect packaging
solution, enabling the brand to stand out on retail shelves with colorful,
reflective graphics while delivering superior recycling, filling, distribution
and retail display economics."
In November of 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 brewery's third seasonal brew to be launched
in aluminum cans and will be available at select retailers in Arizona by the
end of this month.
