We might be drinking beer just about every day and would open the beer bottle’s cap or top with an opener. Some adventurous people might just bite it off to remove the cap. But we might not spare a thought about the cap itself; what it is made of and how it is used as an effective bottle closure. This article is about beer bottle tops for sale. Naturally, this must be of immediate relevance to the buyers in companies involved in manufacturing beer or any other beverage where the bottles are closed with a crown cork as it is called in the trade.
Crown Cork’s Shape and Material
The most popular nomenclature for the beer bottle top is a crown cork. The simple reason is the shape of the cap or lid is like a crown, with a plain top and a skirt like bottom, if one were to look from the side. The inside of the cap has a lining or an insert, which is made of special plastic/food grade sheet that comes in direct contact with the beer inside the bottle. When beer is bottled, the gas inducted during aeration of the drink has to be maintained for a reasonable period of time until the end consumer opens the cork, and the effervescence comes out. While the bottle thickness will take care of this factor, the lining inside the crown cork ensures that the gas does not escape. The beer bottle tops are made from special quality steel or from tin plates. They are first die-cut and then punched to get those 21 indentations that you see in the bottle caps and which is used while employing an opener.
You can also get beer bottle tops with a twisting arrangement, which means you can open without having to use an opener. There are products available where the use of PVC, if you do not want it, can be avoided. As the buyer, you have to have the specs ready before placing the order.
Ordering Beer Bottle Tops
When you contact the company that offers beer bottle tops for sale, you can draw upon their resources to even have special tops made in the design you want. The supplier will have their own in-house design experts who can send options of material to be printed on the bottle tops, and once you agree with the contents, design, color scheme and font sizes, etc., they will take it up for printing. You might wish to check with the supplier if there are minimum order quantity requirements and whether you are able to match them with your own requirements. In a country like Australia, beer is a mass consumption product. If you are into bottling beer and selling here, then the requirement of the beer bottle tops will not be small. However, there are suppliers who offer smaller quantities also, in case you need for the craft beer range. You have to negotiate these with the company offering you the beer bottle tops for sale. A company with a good track record and years of experience in the line would be the most dependable.
