I'm positive if I were to fill it with soda and shake it that it would hold, hopefully someone that has seen them before can comment on this, I really don't know much about the subject. I'm extremely confident they will hold, I'll be sure to post either way. I appreciate the tip beerman!
Usually if the beverage is not carbonated to begin with, then the bottle probably isn't rated to hold pressure. I know there is a certain thickness of material to be rated to hold CO2. I have seen the Arizona tea bottles and I personally would never use them for any kind of long-term storage.
All containers reach a shelf life and are not good after that. Even glass becomes stressed after use during storage and filling.
This all being said, I don't bottle beer much anyway. There may be people here that have used the Arizona Tea bottles with success. They do seem awfully inadequate. I mean the top is not really sealed and that is where I would expect to see failure especially if the beer has a lot of carbonation. If I bottled beer, I would get the best thing I could come across.
