Share your wisdom, I usually avoid those bottles because the labels are such a PITA. I usually have to soak for a couple hours and still go at it with a scrubber

OK, maybe not a few min , sorry, longer soak and fast removal... If they paper is soaked through the glue is easy. I just drop them in the hot sink of water and at the end of the night the paper comes off in one piece and the glue is just one quick rub with the hand or green scratchy.
Worth it to drink their good beer and have the pretty bottle .

I like these a lot as well. From a local craft brewery called Garrison. A lot of their beers are in normal commercial beer bottles, but their special brews come in these.



Garrison is pretty good, although there are better local breweries in my opinion.

+1 on the Odells bottles. I get the labels off pretty easily with just soaking in hot water and a green scrubbie, plus I like the decorative leaves embossed around the neck.

Can most bottles be recycled, Heineken perhaps? That is my main purchase when I buy at the store, if I can recycle those I might never need to purchase bottles.

Grolsch and Fischer swingtops.....cheap and somewhat easy to find, and fit nicely in milkcrates

also use a few pry off bottles, but these are harder to come accross in my area. Use 500ml Picaroons bottles, as well as the Garrison bottles that were already posted above.

I need to get my hands on some dogfish head bottles. Swing top bottles are my favorite. A lot of times I'll buy beer just because it comes in a swing top. Even if I don't like it at least I still have the bottle. I just wish it was easier to find big swing tops.

Orval, but it's going to be a while before i accumulate enough of them for a full batch.

The wide-shoulder Sam Smith Victorian pint bottles (18.7 oz) are awesome, as are the Anchor bottles.

I like SNPA and sam adams bottles because they are easy to come by, but I am starting to build my stash with some unique bottles that look really cool. Fullers are at the top of that list and boy are they thick and heavy. Hoegardden is another favorite with a unique look. Bass also has a neat skinny longneck look. I just like the shape of the different bottles, I think it adds a little something extra.

Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada are staples for me.

Pacifico is also great because it's real cheap and the bottles are plain brown unmarked longnecks.

Also, other threads indicate that a short soak in a CLR type cleaner will take off even the most stubborn silk-screened labels.
