Total light & oxygen elimination keeps your beer fresh 2-3x longer than a glass growler.
Exclusive patented design is the only collapsable carbonation-retaining product of its kind.
Proprietary sealing cap features an oxygen-scavenging material that completely rids contents of oxygen molecules.
Incredibly Eco-Friendly – EcoGrowler boasts an impressive 97% liquid content percentage (to material), compared to 65% for glass.
Lower Carbon Footprint – We can manufacture about 20 EcoGrowlers for about the same aluminum as it takes to make one can.
EcoGrowler is allowed and preferred where glass isn’t – Beach / Bike / Trail.
It’s not only Reusable, it’s Lightweight and Shatterproof.
* UNIQUE OXYGEN SCAVENGER CAP Once the EcoGrowler cap is screwed down tight there is little or no airspace, meaning a greatly reduced exposure of the contents to oxygen. For those few, rogue, oxygen molecules that may remain in the package, we have incorporated the use of a specialised oxygen trap. This is built into our cap. The scavenger device lets any excess oxygen trapped inside the pouch in, but then captures the oxygen molecules and will not release them back into the contents. This specialised feature is significantly beneficial to the shelf life and fresh flavour of your beer.
SHELF LIFE The contents of glass growlers may have a shelf life lasting only a few days due to oxidation from the residual air in the container. EcoGrowler has no airspace and without oxygen exposure you can expect a shelf life far longer than glass alternatives. The actual shelf life of any beer may vary with a number of differing factors, including the ingredients themselves. For optimum results the EcoGrowler must remain cold. The effective shelf life will vary from product to product, but we know this: eliminating oxygen and light are two essential elements in preserving the taste of beer and we accomplish these tasks better than any other packaging alternative on the market.
GREATLY REDUCED OXYGEN EXPOSURE Users wet-seal the Ecogrowler by squeezing out all the air. The container is safety sealed by tightening the cap down on the fluid (with no airspace remaining in the growler).
PRODUCT STRUCTURE We utilize a unique, proprietary, laminated structure which is FDA approved, and includes (but is not limited to) PET / AL / NY / LLDPE. Nylon allows the growler to stretch into rigidity. The inner foil layer protects the contents of the pouch as a CO2 barrier. Our outer layer is an abrasion proof coating which allows our containers to be shipped next to each other without abrasion damage. We print in reverse rotogravure on the clear exterior abrasion-proofing layer for high quality laminated labels in quantities over 60,000 units. This a patented product in the USA and internationally, unique in structure, purpose and design.
CONTACT LAYER As brewers, we are most picky about flavor. Our unique, organoleptic film structure ensures absolute no taste alteration of your product; there is no transference of flavor from our packaging to your product whatsoever. The dense, patented film structure is designed to handle the pouch “stretch” after filling and carbonation expansion to rigidity. The interior or “contact” layer is like a vault for flavor, protecting the subtle nuances of the contents.
FITMENT AND CAP The simple screw-top fitment has been designed to accommodate our “carbonation cap”. This includes an oxygen scavenger layer within the cap to eliminate rogue oxygen molecules left after filling and sealing.
FILLING THE ECOGROWLER Unlike a bottle, the filling process is such that there is no headspace upon sealing the container. While a growler filling tube is commonly used successfully, a TurboTap® (www.turbotap.com) filling tool is highly recommended for the filling of the EcoGrowler. The TurboTap® fills from the bottom up, and reduces the amount of CO2 released in the growler. This can be a great aid to maximize the shelf life. With either the growler filling tube or the TurboTap®, a seal made between the tube and spout will aid in stretching the container and filling it to capacity.
WHAT BEVERAGES CAN ECOGROWLER HANDLE? EcoGrowler has developed and marketed the first flexible beverage container made for ALL beverages, particularly sparkling or carbonated beverages like soft drinks, Beer, Champagne, Moscato and carbonated energy drinks. We also carefully package Wine, juices, liquor, water, or base ingredients. No matter your liquid, we’re capable of handling it.
SAVE ON FREIGHT AND STORAGE SPACE Because they fold flat when empty, an entire palette of glass bottles can be replaced by one, 610 x 457 x330mm, 9.52kgs case of EcoGrowler. When empty, average size comparison is 25 heavy cases of glassware to one, relatively light case of EcoGrowlers.
ECONOMY AND ECOLOGY The aseptic package is an excellent example of minimal packaging. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls aseptics a “great example of source reduction [reducing the amount of packaging for a single product],” an EPA priority.
An aseptic package is typically 97 percent beverage to 3 percent packaging. PET bottles are 93 percent product to 7 percent packaging; cans are 89 percent product to 11 percent packaging; and glass bottles are 65 percent product to 35 percent packaging all by weight.
RECYCLABLE MATERIALS Essentially, EcoGrowlers are now indeed 100% recyclable. New technology welcomes this package as a breakthrough for the future, and many items, including building materials, are made from this type of laminated structure. It is often said that these new versions of aseptic packages amount to the greenest form of commercial packaging in the world.
