I’ve been waiting for quite a while now for some of the smaller soda brands to start using aluminum bottles
Coke and Pepsi have pretty much hogged the stage when it comes to aluminum bottles. Interestingly enough, they’ve come up with 2-3 aluminum bottle designs every year. The latest – and my current favorite – are the aluminum bottles launched by Coca-Cola for the London Olympics (see my post here).
So it was nice to see Oskar Blues Brewery launch its root beer in an aluminum bottle.
The 16-oz. bottle has a root beer color. The caps, which are of course resealable and recyclable, are in a natural aluminum color. It’s a pretty conservative choice of colors, but at least they remind one of root beer.
Dr. Pepper won’t be too far behind . . .
