A cost-saving, space-saving innovation for breweries, brew-pubs, and more

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK; August 17, 2021: AstraPouch® has announced the launch of their newest flexible beer packaging solution, the 64oz Beer Growler. Featuring a dark amber color to protect against UVA/UVB light and a smaller head space to preserve the carbonation and quality of your product, the growler is created specifically for take-out and on-the-go purchases of carbonated beverages. Offering both form and function, this innovation finally brings the benefits of the eco-friendly AstraPouch products to craft breweries, brew-pubs, restaurants, and more.

Bars and restaurants around the country shifted their focus to take-out packaging solutions during the height of COVID-19, with many choosing to continue their offerings even as in-person dining resumes. What’s more, new guidance from many State Liquor Authorities allows for any liquor license holder or producer to sell alcohol for takeout or delivery with the purchase of food.

“The Beer Growler is perfect for short-term storage for those looking to enjoy a fresh draught or craft beer outside of the brewery or restaurant,” says Dave Moynihan, founder and president of AstraPouch. “It’s a great way to allow customers to enjoy the food and drinks from their favorite locales from the comfort of their homes.”

The most attractive features of the Beer Growler are the cost and space savings, according to Michael Mrozak, AstraPouch’s Operations and Fulfillment Coordinator. “They store flat, so a case of empty pouches is equivalent to an entire pallet of glass growlers, but obviously taking up considerably less space.” Additionally, at a purchase price of just $0.99 each, they offer significant cost savings over the $5.00-$6.00 per-item cost of glass growlers.

As with all of our pouches designed for carbonated beverages, the Beer Growler includes AstraPouch’s patented, pressure-regulated screw cap. “The cap holds the pressure inside the pouch, retaining the effervescence of the beverage,” says Mr. Moynihan. “But if the internal pressure gets too high, the cap will crack open to relieve it.” Created with beer in mind, the pouch also features a growler-standard 33mm mouth for easing filling and a marked 64-ounce fill line.

The new pouch shares the convenience, durability and environment-friendliness of all AstraPouch’s products. “It meets all three Rs,” says Mr. Mrozak. “It can be recycled, it can be reused, and it reduces the carbon footprint by 85%, compared to glass.” Other beverage packaging products offered by the company include label-ready pouches, customized printed pouches, and bag-in-box supplies, all in a variety of sizes. More information on the Astrapouch® 64oz Beer Growler and the complete AstraPouch® product line is available on the company’s website at https://astrapouch.com/

A cost-saving, space-saving innovation for breweries and restaurants

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK; November 19, 2020: AstraPouch® today announced the launch of its 64oz Beer To-Go Pouch, flexible packaging created specifically for take-out and on-the-go purchases of beer, soda, and other carbonated beverages. Offering both form and function, this innovation finally brings the benefits of the eco-friendly AstraPouch products to craft breweries, brew pubs, restaurants and more.

The timing of the release is especially significant, as bars and restaurants around the country prepare for a second wave of closures in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. “The Beer To-Go Pouch is perfect for short-term storage of a growler’s worth of beer, “ says Dave Moynihan, founder and president of AstraPouch. “It’s a great way to allow customers to enjoy fresh draught and craft beers in the comfort of their homes.”

The most attractive features of the Beer To-Go Pouch are the cost and space savings, according to Erica Graham, AstraPouch’s VP of Finance and Operations. “They store flat, so a case of empty pouches is equivalent to an entire pallet of glass growlers, but obviously taking up considerably less space.” Additionally, at a purchase price of just $2.00 each, they offer significant cost savings over the $5.00-$6.00 per-item cost of glass growlers. 

The Beer To-Go Pouch is possible thanks to the creation of the vented, pressure-regulated screw cap. “The cap holds the pressure inside the pouch, retaining the effervescence of the beverage,” says Mr. Moynihan. “But if the internal pressure gets too high, the cap will crack open to relieve it.” Created with beer  in mind, the pouch also features sturdy construction, an extra large head space to accommodate foam, and a one-way tap that keeps oxygen out.

The new pouch shares the convenience, durability and environment-friendliness of all AstraPouch’s products. “It meets all three Rs,” says Ms. Graham. “It can be recycled, it can be reused, and it reduces the carbon footprint by 85%, compared to glass.” Other beverage packaging products offered by the company include label-ready pouches, customized printed pouches, and bag-in-box supplies, all in a variety of sizes.

We’re grateful for our clients, who have helped us become the industry leader in flexible packaging solutions.

Ten years ago, Astrapouch® set out on a mission to revolutionize beverage packaging. Now, a decade later, we have made our mark on the industry—and have experienced continued growth in the markets we serve and the products we make.

Our focus initially was on “drinking outside the box,” creating flexible, lightweight, durable, and eco-friendly packaging for wines and spirits. Our first signature pouches are still available today in a range of sizes and configurations.

Our focus gradually expanded to include a full line of Bag-in-Box bags and boxes, cementing our standing as the go-to resource for alternative wine and spirits packaging and opening the door to non-alcoholic and non-beverage packaging. Our flexible packaging is now being used for iced tea, cold brew coffee, syrups, and more.

Dave Moynihan, president and founder of Astrapouch®, says, “Our progress has been steady in moving forward into new industries. We see how Astrapouch has revolutionized the wine and spirits industry over the last 10 years, and we know we can offer similar benefits to customers in new markets.”

Our continued success is largely due to our wonderful customers, and we remain committed to offering the high quality products, competitive pricing and hassle-free ordering they expect. We look forward to the next 10 years, as we continue to revolutionize the liquid packaging industry.

Cheers!
