Packaging #12 - Wood-aged cap

At this point, it might seem that in the previous entries we have already covered all the possible caps to be found in a bottle of beer. But to think so would show a lack of knowledge and consideration to craft breweries, which always surprise us with novelties in every possible flank, such as a gadget that gives a touch of wood aging to bottled beer.

Yesterday I expressed that I could not understand why someone might find it interesting to want to cover a bottle of individual capacity -less than 50 cl-, but there can always be exceptions in this life, as shown by the second alternative of reusable cap to explore: the mythical Tactical Nuclear Penguin by Brewdog.

Sometimes we are faced with the following situation: we have a bottle of beer ready to be enjoyed, and we want to uncap it. But for whatever reason, we are aware that we will not be able to drink the whole beer, or that if we do it will be at the cost of getting us minimally intoxicated.

Packaging #09 - Cork cap

Here is a presentation element much more associated with wine than beer; although it has been there for a long time in brewing traditions like the Belgian, and to this day it is very widespread with the irruption of the craft scene in different countries. The cork cap is usually found in 75 cl bottles -37.5 cl, alternatively- something marvelous in neophytes' eyes who, delighted, indeed say that with that presentation it looks more like a wine than a beer.

Today's packaging element is relatively new in our local market and, yet again, has practicality as its best bet. Although, unlike the one we saw in the previous post, it achieves its purpose with no problems.

Packaging #07 - Twist cap

Let's now review an element that clearly demonstrates that, at the very least, one must be suspicious of marketing. It is best not to confuse today's element, the twist cap, with the screw cap we saw yesterday: while the latter is a great ally for fun and outdoor life, the former can become the worst of your enemies.

The litre bottle cap, so that we get it clear. That element that you playfully throw to your friends when you are in the field or on a BBQ, or with which you entertain yourself at the table when you are drinking a shandy with your family in summer.
