TUCSON - Arizona, you have nothing to worry about anymore. Your White Claw supply will be restocked soon.
After announcing a nationwide shortage of the popular drink in September, Mark Anthony Brewing announced that a new White Claw Hard Seltzer brewery facility will be built in Glendale to help keep up with popular demand.
According to the company, construction of the 916,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art brewery and BrewPure facility will be completed and up and running by June 2020.
The new facility will be built in Glendale’s “New Frontier” at the Loop 303.
“The primary reason we selected Glendale was the innovative thinking and personal support of Governor Doug Ducey, the city of Glendale, the Arizona Commerce Authority, and their willingness to embrace our vision and commit to the support required for our rapid build-out and aggressive timeline,” said Mark Anthony Brewing President John Sacksteder. “Once complete, this new facility will be a beacon for the advanced manufacturing capabilities of the City of Glendale and the state of Arizona.”
According to officials, this new facility will brew White Claw Hard Seltzer, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Mike’s Harder Lemonade and Cayman Jack Cocktails.
It is expected to bring more than 200 full-time jobs to the Glendale area.
“We’re thrilled that Mark Anthony Brewing has chosen Arizona for their western manufacturing center that will create hundreds of new jobs in the West Valley,” said Gov. Doug Ducey. “We are committed to keeping Arizona the best place in the nation to start and scale a business.”
