Default Buying Glass bottles in mass quantity?

I called up http://www.freundcontainer.com/produ...cd2=1206132845

and got a price quote for 10,000 bottles

It came out to be 44 cents a bottle!!!

I'm trying to see how much profit can be made opening a commercial brewery, I was extremely dissapointed by this. Does anybody know any cheaper methods of obtaining bottles?

Why yes! Drinking them empty!

(I had to say it.)

I would think that even a small commercial operation is going to do a lot better on price than a quote you got for a one-time buy of 10,000 bottles.

That's about 30 barrels of beer; a brewery contracting for a year's supply would be buying a lot more than that, and get a much better price.

^ I googled them and came up with nothing

how much do you pay for bottles if you don't mind me asking, I realize I may not get the same price, just looking at what it could potentially cost, because I don't see a brewery in my future if it costs anywhere close to 44 cents a bottle.
