Whether it’s cider or stout, lager or real ale, there’s no substitute for glass packaging!
In the 18th century, back when Indian Pale Ale was first exported and the thermometer was invented, Beatson Clark first started manufacturing glass bottles and jars in the UK. With over 260 years’ experience it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about glass!
We are as passionate about glass packaging as you are about your beer and because of our flexible approach we are ideally placed for breweries of all sizes.
So whether you are looking for standard beer bottles, a small run of a customised bottle, or a completely bespoke design, Beatson Clark has it all.
With so many craft beers, ales, lagers and ciders on the market, how can you ensure your product will stand out on the shelf?
Defining your brand through packaging is key to standing apart from the competition, so we have looked at ways in which even the smaller breweries can achieve this.
