BROOMFIELD, Colo. – From the heart of San Diego's burgeoning craft beer scene, popular relative newcomer Saint Archer Brewing Company has released their four core beers in 12-ounce cans from Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL).
"The bottom line is cans speak to who we are as a brand and the lifestyle we all live," says Saint Archer CEO Josh Landan. "Saint Archer was founded by a collection of professional surfers and skateboarders who all love being active and on the move, and cans fit that lifestyle so well. Plus, cans are so good for the beer, that it really just made sense for us."
As of this week, Saint Archer's four best selling beer styles - including their Blonde Ale, White Ale, Pale Ale and IPA - will be available in 100-percent infinitely recyclable, 12-ounce cans in select stores throughout central and southern California.
"When a progressive craft brewer like Saint Archer uses Ball cans, it's a strong confirmation that cans are a great package for quality beer," said Bruce Doelling, vice president, sales, for Ball's North American metal beverage packaging business. "Craft brewers all over the country who focus on quality are recognizing aluminum cans' beer-protecting qualities, including the ability to block out light and oxygen. In addition, cans are inherently sustainable and made with more than 60 percent recycled aluminum, which aligns well with many craft beer consumers."
