November 9, 2023 (press release) –

Berlin Packaging recently supported a collaboration between a Florida-based ape sanctuary and a Miami-based microbrewery by donating aluminum beverage cans for the sanctuary's 30th-anniversary celebration, according to an article in Packaging Technology Today.

Located in Wauchula, Florida, the Center for Great Apes is a non-profit sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees, rescuing apes requiring lifetime care. To commemorate its 30th anniversary, the Center partnered with Miami-based Tripping Animals Brewing to produce three custom brews featuring label designs created by resident apes at the sanctuary.

The beers debuted in October and November, and Berlin Packaging donated cans to cover the initial launch of the three new brews.

The special beers' unique labels showcase artwork painted by the great apes living at the sanctuary, with each beer displaying the name of its ape artist. The featured artists include chimpanzee Bubbles, formerly kept as a pet by Michael Jackson and chimpanzee Jacob, who appeared in commercials and movies, including “Planet of the Apes.”

“Once you learn about the incredible work being done by the Center for Great Apes, it's impossible not to want to find a way to contribute,” noted Darrin Dingman, Regional VP of Sales – Southeast at Berlin Packaging. “The team at Tripping Animals, the Center, and everyone involved in this anniversary project have been nothing short of inspiring. Donating the cans was a no-brainer, and we're thrilled to play our part.”
