Brewing company Cape May is offering its four new craft beers in Ardagh’s 12oz and 16oz beverage cans.
The four craft beers are Always Ready, Cape May IPA, Coastal Evacuation and Cape May White.
The company is expanding its distribution to consumers across its network of over 20 counties in New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware in the US.
Ardagh Metal Beverage North America CEO Claude Marbach said: “We’re proud to work closely with Cape May to assure its craft beer quality and taste objectives are met in our cans as the company builds its brand.
“We’re also excited to support the company’s environmental and sustainability platform as cans provide the highest recycle rate and content numbers, complementing already compelling business reasons to choose cans to package growth and success.”
Cape May products are available at the company’s retail outlets across New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, including Whole Foods, Acme, Drizly, Shoprite, Wegman’s and over 2,000 smaller beer retailers.
Cape May CEO Ryan Krill said: “We’re emerging as a very trusted brand, where our customers know they’ll consistently see new products that meet any occasion.
“We continue to carve out a specific niche in the crowded craft beer market where the highest quality ingredients are the foundation for innovation and variety.
“We are increasingly turning to cans as they best preserve our specific taste profiles and keep the beer fresher for longer periods of time.
“We also serve the Jersey shore and cans are allowed on beaches, golf courses, etc. where other pack types are not.
“The bottom line is cans are lightweight, great for beer quality and are infinitely recyclable.”
In August this year, Spain-based high-quality wine producer and exporter Producto de Aldea selected Ardagh’s special 250ml Slim Wine Can to be used for Producto de Aldea’s premium wine drinks and wines.
