News: Bedlam chooses Beatson's bottle with benefits


Another growing British craft brewery has chosen Rotherham glass manufacturer Beatson Clark to supply its beer bottles.

The Greasborough Road firm, which has been making glass bottles and jars in Rotherham since 1751, specialises in providing glass packaging solutions for niche brands in the food, drink and pharmaceutical markets worldwide.

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.

An easily recyclable glass bottle made by a UK manufacturer fits with Bedlam's ethical and green practices which also sees them use locally sourced produce and use energy from solar panels at its brewhouse.

Dominic Worrall, managing director at Bedlam Brewery, said: "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. All glass bottles can be fully recycled, which is something we actively encourage and promote.

"We were looking for a quality UK manufacturer that was happy to work in supporting a new start-up business like ourselves. Beatson Clark offered great flexibility and reassurance when walking us through the ordering process for the first time.

“They also offered us a quality design not often found and at a fantastic price point. It was important to us to support UK manufacturing and in Beatson Clark we found the perfect partner."

Chris Palmer, business development manager at Beatson Clark, added: "The environmental benefits of glass are well known, so it's understandable that an ethical business like Bedlam Brewery will want to choose British-made glass for its bottles.

"We hold the council contract to recycle all the waste in Rotherham where we're based, and we're currently investing in a new £840,000 recycling plant which will make recycling much faster and allow us to process more waste glass for our furnaces.

"We're delighted to be supplying an ethical company like Bedlam and we think their new bottles look fantastic!"

Bedlam currently brews four cask ales and has just launched its first lager, a 4.2% Pilsner.
