US: Lagunitas Brewing Co refreshes bottling tie-up with Verallia

By | 13 June 2013

Lagunitas Brewing Company has agreed a deal for Verallia to be its exclusive bottle supplier as it moves forward with a US$25m expansion.

Verallia has been supplying California-based Lagunitas since 2007, but a new contract has "recently" been agreed, the bottler said yesterday (12 June). In April, Lagunitas announced plans to build a new 300,000 square-foot brewhouse in Chicago, which will nearly quadruple its annual production capacity. 

"We are confident in our expansion plans because we have a strong proponent in Verallia to help ensure consistency, quality and accountability across the organisation, production and product line," said Lagunitas CEO Tony Magee. 

Lagunitas is the US' sixth-largest craft brewer by volume, according to the Brewers Association.
