Ardagh Glass has launched two American-made 500ml amber glass beer bottles.
The Euro and Vichy bottles are available for purchase on Ardagh Group’s BOB website. With the addition of the two 500ml bottles, the BOB site now offers eight different amber beer bottles, including two 12 ounce bottle styles, a 22 ounce bottle, two 750ml bottle styles and a 64 ounce bottle.
“BOB listened to craft brewers when they asked for alternative glass packaging options for their brews,” said John Orr, Vice President of Sales for Ardagh Group.
“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 the 500ml bottles adds to the overall enjoyment the drinker has when they pry open one of their favourite brews.”
Ardagh Group’s BOB platform is designed for craft brewers interested in buying glass beer bottles by the pallet, direct from the manufacturer. The two 500ml bottles provide craft brewers with the opportunity to offer a different package size and a larger canvas that stands out on the store shelf, while offering a glass bottle that is 100% recyclable.
Ardagh Group has produced glass bottles in the US for more than 125 years and is one of the largest glass suppliers to the US beer market.
Both 500ml bottles are available for purchase by the pallet online by visiting www.buyourbottles.com.
