Ardagh Group Launches First 12Oz Clear Beer Bottle on its Buyourbottles Website

Press release date: Jun 16, 2017

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group (NYSE: ARD) and a leading producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the United States, today announced the addition of a 12oz clear (flint) beer bottle to its BOB site (BuyOurBottles.com).

Manufactured in the U.S. using 100 percent and endlessly recyclable flint glass, the 12oz 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,” said 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,” said Mitch Reed, Operations Manager at Excel Bottling Company Inc.

The BOB site portfolio now includes nine different beer bottles:

  • Three 12oz bottle styles (Heritage, Pinnacle and Clear Peak);
  • One 22oz Bomber bottle;
  • Two 500ml bottle styles (EURO and Vichy);
  • Two 750ml bottle styles (Celebration and Belgian); and
  • One 64oz Growler.

Beverage companies interested in the Clear Peak bottle can request a sample on the BOB website.
