Alpha Packaging introduces two sizes of PET Growlers view

  • Alpha Packaging

New PET beer Growlers give craft beer lovers a convenient way to take their fresh beer anywhere they want to go – even places that don't allow glass!

Alpha Packaging has just introduced two sizes of PET Growlers for the craft beer industry. The 32-ounce and 64-ounce plastic Growlers are a great option for off-premise draught beer sales, as a substitute for traditional glass vessels. They allow consumers to take fresh draught beer directly from the tap to places that glass is not allowed, including beaches, parks and other outdoor venues.

In addition to traditional amber Growlers for beer, Alpha will be stocking clear PET Growlers which are perfect for cider, lemonade, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink mixes, sangria and Kombucha. The Growlers can hold virtually any ambient-fill liquids, including carbonated or fermented liquids, just so long as they are not pasteurized or hot-filled products.

PET Growlers can incorporate up to 30% post-consumer PET (PCR) for orders of 50,000 pieces and above. The PET Growlers are manufactured in Alpha's Cleveland, Ohio plant, and will initially be stocked in both Cleveland and Salt Lake City. The plastic Growler is so inexpensive that based on geographic demand, Alpha could also create duplicate blow molds for a 2-stage platform and make these bottles in any plant where the company has 2-stage assets.

The recyclable PET plastic is substantially lighter than glass, and is allowed in many places that glass is not – from sporting events and concerts, to beaches and parks. It can be washed with soap and re-used, or – for occasions when it's inconvenient to bring the container back with you – it can be recycled in the PET recycling bins found in parks, at beaches and at other public places.

The 64-ounce Growler features a decorating lug in the base to facilitate screen printing, so unlike traditional glass Growlers, you can print multiple colours on the Alpha PET Growler. The other side of the Growler features a large front label area so companies have plenty of room for branding, as well as all mandatory legal information required by different states. The 32-ounce Growler features a pressure base design engineered especially to handle carbonated beverages.

Growlers will be stocked in light amber and clear PET, and packed in bulk boxes. They will be sold by the full pallet (64oz Growler = 576 pieces; 32-ounce Growler = 960 pieces) with one-pallet minimums, and there is a discount for truckload quantities. Custom-coloured Growlers are also available for 50,000-piece minimums.
