More than 2,000 years ago, the first glass bottles and jars were made. Since that time, glass has continued to evolve, but the many virtues have remained.

As consumers look to environmentally-friendly packaging during the pandemic, breweries are introducing craft beer in glass bottles for the first time and using larger format packaging to support to-go business models.

Bell’s Hopslam Ale back in bottles

For the first time since 2015, Bell’s Brewery has launched its legendary Hopslam Ale in glass bottles. First brewed in 2004, Hopslam Ale is a refreshingly hoppy brew with intense and floral grapefruit, mango and earthy pine notes, quite malty with lingering honey through the finish. Best enjoyed within three months of bottling, Hopslam Ale (10% alcohol by volume) is among the best Double India Pale Ale styles in America.


Breweries have also turned to BOB’s 64oz Growlers to support their new to-go business models. Other breweries that sold draft beer exclusively also turned to growlers.

Growlers are a staple of American beer culture and a symbol of the microbrewing revolution. For much of craft beer’s history, growlers were the primary mode of taking beer home from a small brewery or brewpub. Although its popularity has transformed over the years, it remains a fixture in most breweries.
