Ardagh Group launches two new amber glass beer bottles

us-beerLuxembourg-based glass container manufacturer Ardagh Group has unveiled two new 500ml amber glass beer bottles.

Made in the US, the new EURO and Vichy bottles are provided in Natural Kraft 12-pack cases with partitions.

Both of the fully recyclable bottles will be made available for sale on Ardagh Group’s BOB site.

Ardagh Group sales vice-president John Orr said: “BOB listened to craft brewers when they asked for alternative glass packaging options for their brews.

“The addition of the 500ml EURO and 500ml Vichy bottles provides an expansion of our bottle portfolio to offer craft brewers increased flexibility for their offerings.

“The old-world design of these 500ml bottles adds to the overall enjoyment the drinker has when they pry open one of their favourite brews.”

The company’s BOB platform enables craft brewers to buy glass beer bottles by the pallet directly from the manufacturer.

With the addition of the two new bottles, the BOB site will now offer eight different amber beer bottles, which include two 12oz bottle styles, a 22oz bottle, two 750ml bottle styles and a 64oz bottle.

Ardagh Group has been producing innovative glass beer bottles in the US for more than 125 years.

Last month, Germany-based herbal liqueur brand Jägermeister unveiled a new range of limited edition bottles, manufactured by Ardagh Group at its glass factory in Nienburg, Germany.
