While beer has been produced since the late 17th century, the demand for beer and beer bottles only skyrocketed after World War I.
Brown beer bottles are still used today by many of the most popular beer producers.
Brown glass bottles are still the ideal material to use for bottling beer as it provides the ultimate protection against UV rays.
However, there was a time during World War II when brown glass was in great demand.
Many companies were not able to get brown glass to manufacturer beer bottles and had to create bottles made of green glass.
Beer bottles come in a variety of colors for a distinct reason, in order to keep their contents enjoyable over an extended period of time.
Most of it comes down to practical science with a few marketing concepts thrown in for good measure. Glass bottles for the production of beer have been used as far back as the 16th century.
But it took some time to come to the conclusion that clear glass was not the way to go when it came to beer. Clear bottles of beer left in the sun quickly turned sour.
The smell and taste of the beer resembled the smell of a skunk.
