SanTan Brewing Company’s most popular seasonal beer, Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer is set to hit shelves in February, 2015 – just in time for the big game. Everyone’s favorite guy, Mr. Pineapple is decked out to the nines with a refreshed can design. He’s not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside too! This year, SanTan Brewing Company has teamed up with Chiquita to use Rainforest Alliance Certified Pineapple Juice for a more sustainable, socially conscious and tasty can of craft beer.
“Mr. Pineapple knows how to get the party started. We wanted to give his can a new look, something exciting that’s going to make you smile from the first sip to the last drop,” said Anthony Canecchia, founder and brewmaster at SanTan Brewing Company.
“We’re also very excited to be partnering with Chiquita to improve the quality of our beer by using a premium juice that allows us to support sustainable agriculture and to be more social responsible.”
SanTan’s award winning Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer, originally created as a signature craft beer for SanTan’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.
