Verallia Now Offering Craft Brewers Direct, Online Purchasing of Beer Bottles

MUNCIE, Ind. – Verallia North America, a leading producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the United States, announced at the Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America Show in San Diego the opportunity for craft beer customers to shop and purchase bottles direct via the online store.

BOB - – is the first web site to offer online sales in smaller quantities direct from the manufacturer.

Now, craft beer customers can order stock pry-off amber beer bottles by the pallet instead of large truck loads. “With the high number of new craft brewers in the planning and start-up mode, we have created a means for these customers to be able to order quantities directly from us that fit their immediate needs,” said Robert Shanteau, Vice President, Sales – Beer Sector. “This new purchasing option is not only more convenient, but will also help these craft brewers better manage their working capital while they are ramping up their businesses.”

Brewers can buy direct on the BOB site with a major credit card or through a PayPal™ account and will receive shipment within a few days from one of four warehouse sites strategically located in New York, Georgia, Missouri and California. “Having four sites spread across major regions of the country allows us to quickly fill orders so brewers are not waiting on bottles to arrive or having to store extra quantity for future or anticipated needs,” added Shanteau.

Customers can choose from four different amber bottles including two variations of the 12 ounce bottle, a 22 ounce bottle, and 750 ml bottle. To purchase beer bottles by the pallet, go to
