Kentucky Derby Edition...

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby Edition 2009....$39.99

"Jockey-turned-artist Tom Chapman illustrates racing’s intensity with collectible bottle...
Louisville, KY, March 30, 2009 – Capturing the adrenaline-filled world of horse racing through the eyes of a jockey, Woodford Reserve, an award-winning small-batch bourbon, is honoring the country’s favorite horse race with the release of its limited edition 2009 Kentucky Derby bottle featuring artwork by retired jockey Tom Chapman.
“Much as we try, it’s impossible to express in words the intensity of racing from a jockey’s perspective,” said artist Tom Chapman. “My goal is to capture it with a paint brush and canvas, often using unique angles and vibrant colors to set the tone. But no painting can truly capture the vibrancy and intensity of the Kentucky Derby.”
Chapman’s vibrant, colorful image captures the excitement and intensity of the Kentucky Derby as two jockeys in brightly-colored silks concentrate on the race with the historic Twin Spires of Churchill Downs in the background. The artist’s signature adorns the neck band of the bottle, and an attached tag bears information about the artist and product. The limited edition liter-size bottle will be available beginning in early April throughout the nation in 38 states.
"Woodford Reserve is honored to partner with an artist who can capture the sport from a jockey’s viewpoint," said Laura Petry, Woodford Reserve brand manager. "As the signature bourbon of thoroughbred racing, we are proud to continue our partnership with Churchill Downs® and the Kentucky Derby.”
Woodford Reserve Bourbon is the “Official Bourbon of Kentucky Derby 135” and has served as the official bourbon for the past eleven years. It also sponsors a Grade I race, the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, which is run on Derby Day, May 2, 2009, and has become one of thoroughbred racing’s premier events." -- Brown Forman

Aluminum bottle

Boulevard introduces the new ALUMINUM Bottle for their best selling wheat.
Boulevard Wheat....$1.79 / 16oz aluminum bottle
"16-ounce Container Expands Opportunities for Craft Brewer
KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 5, 2009 – Boulevard Brewing Company today announced the debut of a 16-ounce aluminum bottle for Unfiltered Wheat Beer, the brewery’s most popular offering. The package is expected to enhance distribution opportunities in locations where glass is prohibited, such as golf courses, pools, concert venues, and some outdoor events. The new metal bottles will hit the market beginning April 1.
The company’s choice of the container represents a departure from an exclusive reliance on the traditional glass bottle. “The environmental advantages of aluminum were an important consideration,” explained John McDonald, Boulevard founder and president, “but we added this package primarily to give consumers access to our beer in places that won’t allow glass and don’t have draught capabilities.”

Boulevard’s new state-of-the-art bottling line – installed in late 2008 at a cost of nearly $6 million – is being used to package both its traditional glass bottles and the new metal containers. Current plans call for limiting use of the aluminum bottle to its flagship Unfiltered Wheat Beer, which will continue to be offered in 6-, 12-, and 20-packs of 12-ounce glass bottles.
About Boulevard Brewing CompanyBoulevard Brewing Company has grown to be the largest specialty brewer in the Midwest, dedicated to the craft of producing fresh, flavorful beers using traditional ingredients and the best of both old and new brewing techniques. Boulevard’s portfolio of six year-round and five seasonal beers are available in a 17-state region stretching from Utah to Alabama, and from North Dakota to Texas."
