Pizza Port Brewing Co. Makes Craft Beer More Port-Able In Aluminum Cans From Ball

Stocks in this article: BLL

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pizza Port Brewing Co., winner of 83 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) medals since 2000, is debuting three of its popular beers in convenient, sustainable aluminum cans from Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL).

For the first time in its 26-year history, Pizza Port 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." Vince Marsaglia, her brother and co-founder of Pizza Port Brewing, adds, "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."

Beginning this week, 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 their very "sessionable" Swamis IPA that has the hoppy-ness of an IPA but is still very drinkable.

"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."

Siblings Gina and Vince Marsaglia founded Pizza Port Brewing Company when they purchased their first small seaside pizza joint in Solana Beach, Calif., in 1987. A few years later, they decided to add their passion for delicious beer into the equation and the first official Pizza Port brewpub was born. From Ocean Beach to San Clemente, Pizza Port's four brewpubs along the Southern California coastline have won many prestigious awards, but to Gina and Vince, the recognition doesn't compare to the joy and pride they get from sharing their passion of great grub and grog with their friends, family and the communities they serve. For more informtion please visit  www.pizzaport.com.
