Chandler, Arizona – SanTan Brewing Company is pleased to introduce its new partnership with Admiral Beverage. Set to bring SanTan’s uniquely Southwestern Style Ales including Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer, Devil’s Ale, HopShock IPA, and Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter to the New Mexico craft beer scene, Admiral Beverage is excited to add SanTan to its portfolio.

“Admiral Beverage New Mexico is so happy to be partners with SanTan. Anthony Canecchia is a true artist, he is one of the best brewers in America. New Mexicans can’t wait for his beer to arrive,” said Greg Brown, Admiral Beverage, general manager.

SanTan Brewing Company continues to be one of the fastest growing craft breweries in the nation. Earlier this month, SanTan unveiled a fresh new look! After eight years of rapid growth and expansion, SanTan has launched a refreshed brand that is fun yet mature, cohesive and visually stunning, a perfect complement to its Southwestern Style Ales. While the fresh look is expected to spread across Arizona in the next couple of months, the roll out in California, Texas and New Mexico will continue through the end of 2015.

In 2015, SanTan Brewing will produce over 27,000 barrels of their signature ales and lagers. SanTan achieved regional brewery market classification as defined by the Brewers Association by producing over 15,000 barrels of beer in 2013. In 2014, SanTan launched in the Southern California and Texas markets to a welcome response. The New Mexico market rounds out the southwestern region for SanTan distribution.

“Greg and his team at Admiral share the same passion for craft beer that we have at SanTan. Their team is one of the best in the business and we can’t wait to start working with our new partners in New Mexico,” said Anthony Canecchia, SanTan Brewing Company founder and brewmaster.

“We’re on our way to completing the regional footprint making SanTan the premier brewery throughout the Southwest,” continued Canecchia.

About SanTan Brewing Company

Open since 2007 under the leadership of founder and brewmaster, Anthony Canecchia, SanTan Brewing Company has established a strong reputation as one of Arizona’s favorite craft breweries. In addition to brewing, SanTan features a friendly neighborhood brewpub in Downtown Chandler, which has quickly become one of the top local food and beer destinations in the Phoenix metro area.

All SanTan Brewing Company craft beers are Southwestern Style Ales. SanTan’s brews are fermented to completion and carbonated higher than traditional American beers for a more effervescent, crisp and refreshing hand crafted beer – perfect for quenching your thirst in the hot Arizona sun and throughout the southwestern region of the US.

In 2009, SanTan Brewing began distributing their Southwestern Style Ales throughout the state of Arizona, operating with a mission to pair craft beer with craft food that would inspire great conversation and good times. 2014 marks the beginning of taking this journey throughout the Southwest and California.


SanTan beers have won numerous national and statewide awards including two medals at the US Open Beer Championship: bronze in 2013 and gold in 2011. SanTan Brewing also took home a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival and won Best Brewery in Arizona, selected by the Phoenix New Times and the Arizona Republic, in 2013 and 2011.
