Has the question ever struck in your mind that why Beer is not served in clear bottles? We are going to explain you the reason. Here is why the beer bottles are either in green or brown in colour.
In its earliest days, beer was served in a clear bottle, but these brewers soon discovered that one of the acids in the beverage is reacting with sunlight and the UV rays. UV rays are emitted directly from sunlight.
Because of this, the Beer used to turn very smelly and as a result, it used to be less interesting as a product and the sales went down.
In order to solve this problem, to fix it, they tried coating the bottles with brown colour. The thing with brown colour is that it doesn’t let the UV rays to interact with the acid in the Beer and hence it is safe and doesn’t get destroyed.
During the World War 2, the green bottles came to use for the first time. The availability of the brown bottles has increased drastically and the brewers and they had to opt for some other colour so that it can help them to maintain the sale and the quality of Beer. This is when the Green coloured bottles started to come into existence.
