Mr. Pineapple Wheat
Ale Brewed by SanTan Brewing in Chandler, AZ
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. To find a pint of Mr. Pineapple near you, visit
