I stumbled upon this website for Avery’s Beverages. They’re located in New Britain, CT. I’m not a big soda drinker, but their site caught my eye when I read:
“Most of Avery’s soda is packaged in returnable, reusable glass bottles. You may notice that some of our bottles do not have an Avery label on them. Because replacement bottles are not readily available we use ‘orphaned’ bottles from other bottling companies that have gone out of business.”
(From: Avery Soda website)
It’s a pretty cool idea to give home to “orphaned” bottles. Good job, Avery!
