The Molson Coors Brewing Company and its resealable aluminum bottle, featuring Ball Corporation‘s Alumi-Tek bottle, was a double winner at the 2013 PAC Leadership Awards, taking home a Gold Award from PAC—The Packaging Association and Canadian Packaging magazine’s Consumer’s Voice Award.

Molson Coors introduced its 16 oz. aluminum bottle with a trio of tasty brews: Molson CanadianCoors Light, and Coors Light Iced T, receiving the 2013 Gold Award in the rigid packaging category, recognized for its technical, graphic and sustainability achievements.
