Best Brewery - 2013
SanTan Brewing Co.
In a phrase popular among douchey business types, SanTan crushed it this year. Not only did the Chandler-based brewery pioneer the AmeriCAN Craft Beer Festival (which we named the year's best fest in this issue), they did it while opening a new 35,000-square-foot warehouse that soon will enable them to increase distribution outside the state. The past year also saw the release of seasonal brews in cans, making it possible for us to enjoy Rail Slide, Sex Panther, and Mr. Pineapple wherever we damn well pleased. You'd expect them to get at least a little distracted by the weekly cask tappings at their brewpub and the upcoming release of Count Hopula, but no. SanTan had no time for distractions. They were too busy crushing it.
Congrats to our friends at Fate Brewing Company on winning Best New Brewery!! If you haven't been you gotta get there!!
How in the world did this brewery win ? The beer is mediocre at best.. There are so many breweries in Phoenix that poop on Santan I.e sleepy dog ,north mountain, and many more
Cheers to you guys!! Don't get me wrong, I love Four Peaks, but I'm glad to see someone else finally get it.
