“While we do can some of our beers, we have always put our flagship beers in bottles and don’t plan to stop anytime soon.”

Ardagh said its 12oz long-neck amber glass beer bottles are 100% and endlessly recyclable.

Ardagh North American Glass business unit chief commercial officer John Shaddox said: “Parkway Brewing Company’s passion for supplying quality and consistency in their beer aligns perfectly with Ardagh’s dedication to manufacturing high-quality glass packaging.
