Peace Tree Brewing Co., an Iowa-based craft brewer, was founded in 2009 at a former Nash Rambler car dealership.  The brewery is dedicated to brewing handcrafted, full-flavored beers with a great attention to quality, and has enjoyed success in recent years.

Peace Tree recently decided to modify their existing bottle to achieve a true 12-ounce fill on the production line (instead of 350 mL) and to change the neck finish to allow for easier opening. The brewer turned to Berlin Packaging for a container that would help their product stand out in the highly-competitive craft-beer market while ensuring supply-chain efficiencies like just-in-time delivery of packaging, allowing them to improve product availability.

 Berlin created a custom amber glass bottle designed by its Studio One Eleven innovation team. This bottle solved the 12-ounce-fill and neck-finish objectives while also reinforcing brand recognition and strength with its unique shape and distinctive embossments – all while working perfectly on the existing filling line equipment. The new bottle launched in November 2016.   •
