PHOENIX -- By March 1, people in Southern California will be sipping on a San Tan Brewing Company beer and, by April 1, Texas will follow suit.

Anthony Canecchia, head brewer and owner at San Tan, said Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada could be added to the list of states where San Tan is available by summertime.

"We're trying to cover the geographic footprint of the Southwest," he said. "Our goal is to become the Southwest's premier regional craft brewery."

Canecchia just finished a whirlwind, week-long trip to California and Texas which included a stop in Austin, considered the craft beer capitol of Texas.

San Tan will have the capability to brew 48,000 barrels of beer by the end of 2014 at their new Chandler plant. Currently, Phoenix Ale Brewery and Grand Canyon Brewing are the only Arizona craft brews being shipped out of state.
