Glass bottles consistently rank number one for protecting taste.
Glass bottles are the perfect choice for everyday craft beer experiences, special occasions and celebrations.
Glass is 100% and endlessly recyclable – from recycling bin to store shelf in as little as 30 days.

It’s easy and cost-effective to bottle your craft brew.
Today’s glass manufacturers and suppliers sell beer bottles in all quantities through simple online platforms. While novelty or custom bottles are on the upswing, stock bottles in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors can be at-the-ready.
BuyOurBottles.com (BOB) offers glass beer bottles direct from Ardagh Group’s glassmaking facilities for purchase by the pallet with a credit card or PayPal account, and brewers can request a sample before ordering. See their collaboration with Yazoo Brewing Company on a commemorative bottle premiering at #CBC18.
O-I’s On Demand platform offers low minimum orders, credit card payment, a stock inventory program and custom bottle design services. See their Artisan collection. And learn about O-I’s partnership to reintroduce refillable bottles for craft brewers in the state of Oregon.
While it can be an investment to install all types of filling lines, for brewers without a bottling line mobile bottlers can come directly to the brewer and fill on-premise. And with glass bottles, there are low minimums.
