CHANDLER, AZ – The SanTan Brewing Company of Arizona announced that four of its award-winning craft beers – Hopshock IPA, HefeWeizen Wheat, Devil''s Ale and Epicenter Amber Ale – will be sold in a new variety 12-pack (cans).
Since their release in Summer 2010, the canned SanTan brews have been extremely popular with beer aficionados. The new SanTan mixed 12-packs will be available year-round at select retail locations in Arizona serviced by Crescent Crown Distributing. Distribution is expected to expand throughout the year.
"Craft beer lovers now have more options in cans," said Anthony Canecchia, Owner and Head Brew Master of SanTan Brewing Company. "Craft beer is for beer drinking. These new 12 packs are party pleasers. The SanTan multi-pack stimulates craft beer exploration. The flavor profile goes from fruity to hoppy and sweet to bitter. It really flexes the sophistication of the beer drinker's pallet."
SanTan HopShock IPA (India Pale Ale) is a West Coast Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make this IPA a Hop-Heads passion. IPAs pair well with spicy foods.
SanTan Hefeweizen is a traditional German Wheat beer brewed with a very distinctive strain of wheat yeast that gives it an unmistakably strong banana-clove flavor and aroma. Hefeweizen is an un-filtered beer, which gives the recognizably hazy gold appearance. Hefeweizen pairs well with lighter foods like seafood and salads.
SanTan Devil's Pale Ale is deep golden-maroon in color with a light citrusy hop flavor balanced with a firm caramel malt character. Pale ales go great with burgers and sandwiches.
SanTan Epicenter Amber Ale features a deep garnet amber hue with a firm toasted malt character. It's lightly sweet with a crisp, dry finish. Amber ales pair well with a variety of foods, including burgers, seafood and chicken.
