For the first time in its 26-year history, Pizza Port Brewing Co. will be entrusting its hand-crafted passion to a new, more portable can package. “It was a natural evolution for us,” said Pizza Port Co-Founder Gina Marsaglia. “Our consumers like to be outside and want to take great beer with them. The can is a portable and sustainable way for them to do that.”
Ball Corp. will be Pizza Port’s aluminum can supplier. The company is a global packaging solutions provider for beverage, food and household products customers, as well as aerospace and other technologies and services.
“By putting their exceptional beer in Ball cans, Pizza Port further confirms that aluminum cans are a premium packaging option for many of the best craft brewers in America,” said Rob Miles, senior vice president of sales for Ball’s global metal beverage packaging business. “Aluminum cans from Ball are helping craft brewers differentiate their products while realizing efficiencies in operating costs and energy savings.”
Now, three of Pizza Port’s most popular beers will be available in recyclable cans throughout San Diego County. The labels will include Chronic Amber Ale (known as ChronicAle), Ponto Pale Ale and the “sessionable” Swamis IPA that has the hoppy-ness of an IPA but is still very drinkable.
Vince Marsaglia, her brother and co-founder of Pizza Port Brewing, added: “Our highest priority has always been to deliver the best quality beer to our consumers and aluminum cans help us keep our beer fresh by keeping out light and oxygen.”
