Choc and Funnel Win Packaging Contest
Oklahoma-based Choc Beer Co. and Funnel Design Group took two top prizes at the 2008 World Beer Championships packaging competition.
Joe Prichard, whose family owns Choc Beer, said the Story Line Series, which took “Best Case Series” and “Best Label Series,” includes six beers that are based on the story of his grandfather and company founder Pietro Piegari, later known as Pete Prichard.
In 1903, 11-year-old Pietro Piegari traveled with his family to the coalmining community of Krebs. Sixteen years later, the enterprising young immigrant came up with the idea of using an Indian Territory recipe to brew a beverage for coalminers to enjoy during their free time.
