Amber Crown Top Bottles 

Amber Crown Top Bottles are a staple for home brewers with benefits including:

  1. UV Protection: Amber glass provides excellent protection against ultraviolet (UV) light, which can degrade the quality of beer by causing off-flavors. This makes amber bottles ideal for preserving the taste and freshness of homebrews.
  2. Durability: These bottles are designed to withstand the pressure of carbonated beverages, making them a reliable choice for beers, ciders, and carbonated drinks.
  3. Reusable: Amber crown top bottles are reusable, allowing home brewers to bottle multiple batches over time, which is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
  4. Standard Closure: The crown top design is compatible with standard bottle capping tools and crown caps, ensuring a secure seal that maintains carbonation and minimizes oxidation.


How Many Bottles Do I Need For a Brew?

Variables such as the bottling method you use and whether you cold crash your brew may affect your final volume; generally 24-28 bottles is required for a standard brew (23l).

Brewing tip: Keep the boxes the bottle come in. They’re great for storing your bottled beer in until your ready to drink each bottle.


Did You Know The Crown Top Bottle Is Over 100 Years Old?

The crown top bottle cap, a revolutionary invention in the packaging industry, was patented by William Painter in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1892. Before Painter’s invention, carbonated beverage bottles were sealed with a variety of less effective methods, including corks, wire bails, and porcelain stoppers, which often failed to keep the contents carbonated and fresh. Painter’s crown cap, a metal cap lined with a cork seal, provided a superior solution by creating an airtight seal that preserved the carbonation and flavor of beverages much more effectively.

The introduction of the crown top bottle cap changed the beverage industry forever, making it easier to store and transport carbonated drinks without the risk of losing fizz or freshness. Its success was immediate and widespread, leading to the rapid adoption of the crown top as the standard for sealing bottles worldwide. The durability, simplicity, and effectiveness of the crown top cap helped to popularize bottled carbonated beverages, including beer and soda, setting the stage for the global beverage industry as we know it today.

Over time, the design has evolved, with the original cork lining being replaced by plastic, but the basic concept of the crown top bottle cap remains largely unchanged. Today, crown top bottles continue to be a popular choice for home brewers and beverage manufacturers alike, offering a tried and true method for preserving the quality and taste of a wide range of carbonated drinks.
