Default Does this make sense to you???????

I found this on ebay and it looks like these are selling for more than what you can buy them full for.

I went to my bottle return depot about a year ago and bought 400 empty Grolsch bottles for $60. Most of the seals were still good, too. Some of the bottles were a bit grungy, but I soaked them all in TSP and bleach for a day, then ran them through my old dishwasher and they looked like new. That sure beats this guys price on eBay!

Some people will over-bid on anything. Green bottles are a bad idea anyway.

Why are green bottles bad?

They let in UV light. They aren't BAD, per se, but you have to pretend they are clear and keep them out of the light or the beer will skunk. Same with blue bottles.

How much would it cost to buy 2 20 cases of Grolsh bottles full of Grolsh?
That price just sounds ridiculous.

Maybe it was some kid who thought they were still full of beer...

I have been looking for blue beer bottle for a while! Does anyone know where to get 16oz or 12oz blue bottles. I would for sure keep them covered. They look so and it would be a small price to pay covering them up to have sweet sweet blue bottles.

I've seen them in a few places online (can't find any quick, though), and my LHBS sells them. Swing-tops, but they are expensive as hell. Nice cobalt blue, but close to $30 for twelve 16oz (or maybe 20oz) bottles. Too pricey for me

EDIT: Google search on 'blue beer bottles' led me here:
