Welcome to Anderson Valley Brewing in Boonville, California.

In other brewery news, AVBC has phased out all glass bottles in favor of packaging its beers in aluminum cans in cardboard packaging. According to the brewery, this is the most sustainable beer packaging possible. Recycling an aluminum can uses 90% less energy than glass bottles and this packaging is much lighter and compact so the brewery can ship its beers more efficiently.

“Our last run of Boont Amber in glass bottles was a bit bittersweet because of how historic that beer is, but we have now officially transitioned entirely to aluminum cans with cardboard wrap packaging,” said President and CEO Kevin McGee. “We also found that with our new cardboard wraps we use 52% less total cardboard than our old glass package format and we can reduce our overall material costs by up to 30% while doing better for the planet. This is the most environmentally responsible beer package available – a milestone that has allowed us to dramatically reduce both supply chain and packaging costs all while dramatically reducing our carbon footprint.”
