Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group and a producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the U.S., added a 12-oz. clear (flint) beer bottle to its BOBTM site.
Manufactured in the U.S. using 100% and endlessly recyclable flint glass, the 12-oz. Clear Peak bottle with twist-off closure is now available for purchase on the BOB site.
“With the bottle expansion in flint glass, craft brewers, craft soda, and cider customers, and functional beverage and kombucha customers can benefit from brand differentiation with a trusted product that fully protects the flavor of their beverage,” says John Orr, Vice President of Craft Beer Sales for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division.
Packaging is what the consumer interacts with most, and often, the quality of the product is best expressed through the brand’s package. Excel Bottling Company Inc., based in Illinois, recently began using the new Clear Peak bottle for its flavored soda brands.
“We have been really pleased with the quality of the glass, the outstanding customer service and the support from Ardagh Group since we started using them for all of our glass needs,” says Mitch Reed, Operations Manager at Excel Bottling Company Inc.
The BOB site portfolio now includes nine different beer bottles:
• Three 12-oz. bottle styles (Heritage, Pinnacle and Clear Peak);
• One 22-oz. bomber bottle;
• Two 500-ml. bottle styles (EURO and Vichy);
• Two 750-ml. bottle styles (Celebration and Belgian); and
• One 64-oz. growler.
