Packaging of carbonated beverages

  • Loa Karjalainen

Abstract

Beer, besides mead, is the oldest carbonated beverage known. Brewing seems to remain more an art than an exact science, and it has not changed basically since medieval times. The history of beermaking in different countries has been described in numerous books and articles; but how the last step of the process, the packaging, has developed has created no interest among the historians. Thus, exactly when bottling of beer started is not known. Einbeck beer (in Worms, the town of Martin Luther) has been brewed since 1351 but bottled only from the mid 1800s; Manet showed in a painting of 1882 two bottles which apparently contained the pale ale brewed by Bass in the town of Burton-on-Trent, England; a shipment of beer from London was aboard on the steamer ‘Oliva’ when she sank in the Baltic in 1869, and bottles were recovered in 1974 (Jackson, 1979).
