The Alumi-Tek® bottles are from Ball Corp. Stiff was a part of the local Lyons bike scene and father of two who recently and unexpectedly passed away. When Lyons locals looked for ways to help his widow, it seemed only natural for Dale Katechis to name Oskar Blues’ root beer B.Stiff & Sons as a tribute to their friend.

“With every sale, a portion of the proceeds of B.Stiff & Sons Old Fashioned Root Beer goes to Brian’s family,” said Chad Melis, marketing director of Oskar Blues Brewery. “After years of serving our popular, home-brewed root beer from our restaurants, we decided to share it with friends and family in a portable, recyclable package suitable for outdoor activities – Ball’s 16-oz. Alumi-Tek bottles.”

Ball’s resealable bottle lets consumers enjoy B. Stiff & Sons root beer on the move wherever they go.  The 100-percent recyclable bottle is lightweight, unbreakable and impervious to light and oxygen – providing unparalleled flavor protection and long shelf life for the beverage inside.
