SanTan Brewing Company continues to be one of the fastest growing craft breweries in USA. Earlier this month, SanTan Brewing unveiled a fresh new look. After eight years of rapid growth and expansion, SanTan Brewing 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 its signature ales and lagers. SanTan Brewing achieved regional brewery market classification as defined by the Brewers Association by producing over 15,000 barrels of beer in 2013. In 2014, SanTan Brewing launched in the Southern California and Texas markets to a welcome response. The New Mexico market rounds out the southwestern region for SanTan Brewing’s distribution.
“Greg and his team at Admiral Beverage share the same passion for craft beer that we have at SanTan Brewing. 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’s founder and brewmaster.
“We’re on our way to completing the regional footprint making SanTan Brewing the premier brewery throughout the Southwest,” continued Canecchia.
