Default Cork top bottles

I bought a bottle of Sierra Nevada's 30th Anniversary. It has a cork top. Can I reuse this for bottling? If not the cork part, can I at least reuse the bottle itself with a regular bottlecap?

I haven't bought one of those yet, so I don't know. Some of those style (like Jolly Pumpkin) can take a crown cap. If it came with a cork and cage, its probably the 750mL Belgian style bottle. In that case, you will need a floor corker, Belgian corks and cages.
