Rotherham-based Beatson Clark to launch new beer bottle in US at BrewExpo

Leading South Yorkshire-based glass manufacturer Beatson Clark will be showcasing its new beer bottle design at BrewExpo America next month.

The champagne-style 500ml Skittle bottle will complement a similar 330ml bottle which is already in Beatson Clark’s general sale range.

Export Sales Manager, Jan-Willem Ridt, and Marketing Manager, Charlotte Taylor, will be at BrewExpo America, which takes place from 11 to 13 April in Washington, DC.

On stand number 3113 they will be showcasing the new bottle, which has been designed in response to an increased demand for eye-catching beer bottles from the growing craft beer sector.

Beatson Clark will also be promoting its increasingly popular embossing service. Breweries can commission an exclusive, bespoke design with embossing or, if budgets are restricted, Beatson Clark can add embossing to a standard bottle, which reduces the cost and minimum volume.

BrewExpo America, part of the Craft Brewers’ Conference, is the largest brewing conference and trade show in the US.

Staged at the Walter E Washington Convention Center, it brings together more than 800 vendors in one location.

“Brewing is a very important part of our business, so BrewExpo America is now a major highlight in our calendar of trade shows,” said Charlotte Taylor. “The craft beer sector is a perfect fit for us, as we offer small production runs and a flexible approach, and breweries are often surprised to find they can have customised beer bottles at such low volumes and cost.

“BrewExpo America is the place to meet leaders in the national and international brewing arena, and our visits have proved extremely beneficial for us in the past, so we’re really looking forward to it!”

Beatson Clark produces beer bottles for many breweries at its facilities in Rotherham, from global brands such as Brooklyn Brewery and BrewDog, to artisan craft breweries like Bertinchamps in Belgium and the Basqueland Brewing Project in Spain.
