Bedlam Brews in Beatson Bottles
Published: 18th September, 2015
Another growing British craft brewery has chosen Beatson Clark to supply its beer bottles.
Bedlam Brewery in West Sussex has taken Beatson Clark’s standard 330ml amber beer bottle and given it a twist with colourful artwork screenprinted onto the glass by Yorkshire Bottle Solutions.
The bottles are manufactured by Beatson Clark but sold through Yorkshire Bottle Solutions, a glass decorating specialist based in Normanton, West Yorkshire.
Bedlam Brewery sets great store by its ethical and green practices, so an easily recyclable glass bottle made by a UK manufacturer was top of their shopping list.
“We try to minimise packaging and have been able to opt for a screen-printed bottle over a printed label to lessen any excessive waste,” said Managing Director Dominic Worrall. “All glass bottles can be fully recycled, which is something we actively encourage and promote.”
The brewery strives to reduce its impact on the environment and uses locally sourced produce where possible. The beers are brewed using British hops and barley, and Bedlam is investing in its own hop fields on the estate.
All the energy used to run the brewhouse comes from solar panels in the roof, excess water is dispersed across the farm estate once safely treated, and spent grain goes to local farms for cattle feed.
