Growlers offer a convenient, effective, and aesthetic way of storing and transporting liquids. Generally used in the beer industry, glass growlers are air-tight jugs that are well-suited for transporting beer while keeping it fresh. Berlin Packaging's range of growlers also feature useful finger loops or handles for ease of carrying, and some also include swing top caps and stoppers.
Advantages of Glass
As well as offering an attractive way of presenting craft beer, growlers made from glass have additional benefits. Glass is produced from natural materials such as sand, limestone, and soda ash, doesn’t erode, and isn’t chemically reactive. This means that there is no risk of the growler’s contents being contaminated by potentially harmful chemicals, which makes them suitable for carrying beverages such as beer. For products where this level of protection isn't required, such as for industrial products, consider utility jugs instead.
Why Is Amber Glass a Suitable Material for Beer Growlers?
Amber glass offers filtering properties that make amber glass growlers uniquely suited to holding beer. When beer is exposed to UV rays, photo-oxidation can occur, resulting in changes to the beer's original flavor. However, amber glass effectively filters UV rays, thereby protecting its contents, and keeping it fresh.
Can Glass Growlers be Recycled?
As with all glass products, glass growlers can be widely recycled. Glass is one of the only materials that can be recycled an infinite number of times without the material being degraded, and is therefore a suitable choice when environmental impact is an important selling point of a product.
