SanTan Brewing chooses Ardagh’s 24oz cans for craft beers

SanTan Brewing has selected glass and metal packaging company Ardagh Group’s 24oz cans for its Mr Pineapple and MoonJuice IPA craft beers.

SanTan Brewing has selected glass and metal packaging company Ardagh Group’s 24oz cans for its Mr Pineapple and MoonJuice IPA craft beers.

Originally launched in 12oz cans, the company decided to launch these products in the larger cans after these brands bolstered their presence throughout the Arizona market in the US.

MoonJuice IPA became the fastest growing brand in the company’s portfolio.

Ardagh noted that MoonJuice is the only IPA available in the 24oz cans in the state.

SanTan National sales director Matt Neuman termed the new larger size cans as ‘a mini keg’.

Neuman said: “The three biggest enemies of beer are light, oxygen and heat. Cans eliminate the first two hazards, providing the best in ingredient and taste integrity.
