Iron City Slips Into Something More Aluminum

Iron City, in conjunction with Alcoa, is making their beer available in aluminum bottles. The idea is that aluminum bottles will keep beer colder for as much as 50 minutes longer than a glass bottle, according to Alcoa. The bottles are also lighter, resealable and unbreakable. Alcoa suggests the innovation–which is already used for beer in Japan–is in line with early reforms like the pull-top aluminum can, which they say they introduced, also with Pittsburgh Brewing, in 1962.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
