Default EZ Cap (Grolsch) 16oz Bottle @ Midwest

Can anyone tell me why these bottles are so cheap at Midwest? I did the math and they are less than $20 a case (12) including shipping. Anywhere else they are maybe $20 - $30, then add the shipping. Even at my LHBS they are $29 a case.

Thanks,
Greg

My guess is it's because they buy A LOT of those bottles. I think those are the bottles that they offer for a buck with every kit purchased. It's been a while since I ordered from Midwest but we always did the add bottle thing with our kits.

meh, seems to me 16 oz of Grolsch beer are worth $.75

11.99 for 12 bottles = $1.00 each

6.99 for 4 bottle Grolsch =$1.75 each

Beer = $.75 each
