Ardagh Group North America has created proprietary beer packaging for the O’Fallon Brewery. The bottle will be used for the brewery’s ‘Everyday’ and ‘Seasonal’ beers.
The glass manufacturer created a custom long-neck bottle at its Pevely, Missouri facility—35 miles from the O’Fallon Brewery in Maryland Heights, Missouri. O’Fallon President and CEO Jim Gorczyca said that since the brewery prefers locally sourced ingredients and packaging materials, the Ardagh Group was a perfect fit.
The beer packaging features O’Fallon’s signature ‘O’ and ‘We Love Beer’ slogan embossed in the bottle’s neck. The ‘O’ will also be featured on the company’s new O’Bar restaurant.
John Orr, Vice President of Craft Beer Sales for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division, 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 utilizing a bottle design to influence craft beer drinkers and build on the foundation of a great beer brand.”
Ardagh said the bottle will help differentiate O’Fallon, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. According to O’Fallon, it is the second-largest and second-oldest craft brewery in the St. Louis area.
