Beer in a plastic bottle… the verdict

February 2, 2008
 
Yesterday the Mr., our little one and I braved the Friday shopping crowds and went to pick up some groceries for the weekend. One of the things we picked up out of sheer curiosity was a four-pack of beer – in plastic bottles.
 
The introduction of a new plastic bottle recycling system in Finland began at the beginning of this year. See more here at the website of PALPA – Suomen Palautuspakkaus Oy or roughly Finnish Recyclable Packaging Limited http://www.palpa.fi/disposable_plastic_bottles.
 
Now the Mr. doesn’t usually agree to appear in this blog, but I kindly asked him to test the beer (which he happily did) and give his verdict on the plastic bottle. He said, "You can taste the plastic…" and promptly gave it the big thumbs down.
 
As for the "sample" in the picture, we are not endorsing any particular Finnish beer product, that’s just the brand that happened to be available at the store.
 
Truthfully? If I want to have a beer I would rather have it in a nice cold, glass bottle. Plastic is for pop! Star
