Glass and metal packaging solutions company Ardagh has designed a new beer bottle for O’Fallon Brewery.
The company’s North American glass division has created the traditional-style, classic, long-neck bottle at its manufacturing facility in Pevely, Missouri.
O’Fallon Brewery will use the bottle with O’Fallon’s signature ‘O’ and ‘We Love Beer’ slogan to package its ‘Everyday Beers’ and ‘Seasonal Beers’.
Ardagh Group North American glass division craft beer sales vice-president John Orr said: "Craft brewers are increasingly focusing on innovations in package design, and the new bottle from O’Fallon Brewery is the perfect example of this advancement.
"Ardagh Group appreciates O’Fallon’s commitment to sustainable packaging, while utilising a bottle design to influence craft beer drinkers and build on the foundation of a great beer brand."
Ardagh claimed that the bottle will offer a unique brand differentiation for O’Fallon, which is the second largest craft brewery in the St Louis area.
O’Fallon Brewery president and CEO Jim Gorczyca said: "When possible, O’Fallon does its best to source ingredients and packaging material locally, and Ardagh Group was the perfect choice.
"Consumers want to know that when they choose hand-crafted, locally produced beer that their purchase supports the local economy."
Ardagh Group has 89 facilities in 21 countries where it produces glass and metal packaging for food, beverage and consumer care sectors.
