Default Crates for Beer Bottles

Found these crates today(1/6/12) at ACO on clearance.
The price was marked $5.99 discounted to $3.00 each.
They are stackable and hold 30 longneck bottles.







Not sure if they are available just local at my ACO, or only in Michigan, or across the entire chain, but worth a look for some solid bottle storage.

You'd have to store them in a dark place or keep them covered to prevent skunking. I use the new style sturdy 12 pack boxes from leinenkugel's (has seperators),magic hat,dundee's,Great Lakes,& the labatt cases.

That's what I use. Mine come from Walmart and hold 30 standard 12oz bottles.

Skunking? In dark glass? I store mine in a basement that is dark 90% of the time. I guess if the sun was allowed to hit the bottles you may have probs.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

The dark glass is best for beer bottles,true. But being exposed to sunlight,they can get skunked. Just not quite as quick as clear or green glass.
