Molson offers beer in aluminum bottles

Molson is offering a new brew that combines the taste of a classic lager with essence of guarana, a natural source of caffeine. Available in Canada, Molson Kick comes in a sleek, fast-chilling aluminum bottle from CCL Industries.

Molson selected the 355-ml aluminum bottle because it offers a contemporary, stylish packaging, and also because it chills faster and is lighter than a glass bottle. The sleek design of this bottle and its silver-metallic look is something beer drinkers will enjoy holding in their hands, the company says.

“Molson Kick truly is an evolution in beer,” says Gino Cantalini, vp, innovation for Molson Canada. “Creating a smooth-tasting, premium lager with guarana is one more way for Molson to offer innovation and variety to Canadian beer drinkers. It’s fitting that we would also make Canada’s first lager with guarana available in Canada’s first aluminum beer bottle.”

Consumers can also purchase Molson Kick in glass bottles at retail outlets across Canada, as well as in cans throughout western Canada.
