Oskar Blues releases the drink in Alumi-Tek pint bottles by Ball Corp.
premier craft brewer Oskar Blues Brewery of Lyons, CO, combining their
home-brewed root beer with the convenient, quick chilling, resealable Alumi-Tek®
bottles byBall Corporation(www.ball.com) benefits not only Oskar Blues
and its customers but also the family of Brian Stiff.
Stiff was a part of the local Lyons, CO, bike scene and father of two, who
recently and unexpectedly passed away. When Lyons locals looked for ways to
help his widow, it seemed only natural for Dale Katechis to name Oskar Blues’
root beer B.Stiff & Sons as a tribute to their friend.
Ball’s resealable bottle lets
consumers enjoy B. Stiff & Sons root beer on the move wherever they
go. The 100% recyclable bottle is lightweight, unbreakable and impervious
to light and oxygen – providing unparalleled flavor protection and long shelf
life for the beverage inside.
“With every sale,
a portion of the proceeds of B.Stiff & Sons Old
Fashioned Root Beer goes to Brian’s family,” says Chad Melis, marketing
director of Oskar Blues Brewery. “After years of serving our popular,
home-brewed root beer from our restaurants, we decided to share it with friends
and family in a portable, recyclable package suitable for outdoor activities –
Ball’s 16-ounce Alumi-Tek bottles.”
