Bombers from Alaskan. Love the 22oz bottles and the labels float right off after only a few hours in hot water and PBW.

I agree also with Deschutes 12's, the scroll work at the base of the neck is great and the labels come right off, residual glue scrubs off with a green Scotch pad.

Those fort bottles look just like Cigar City bottles, and I just got access to 36 of them. Hoped a regular cap would fit them well.

Also, I like the 24 ounce SN bottles, like from the hop harvest series, etc.

I love Hoegaarden bottles. But since I am new to the hobby I have whatever I can get my hands on (Hoe, Sam Adams, Stella, Sierra Nevada, Red Hook, Miller Light twist-offs). I would love to get a standard bottle but I can't justify buying bottles when I have my friends saving all their empty bottles for me.

Although I would be using those Jolly Pumpkin bottles if I could find those around here.

+1 on the Sptaten Optimator/Franziskaner bottles, I really like the shape and they are about the perfect size. I also like the DFH 12 oz bottles, there is just something about them, how they kind of look like the new bottles from the LHBS but more refined.

I bought out my local Whole Foods' supply of the Dogfish Head "Squall IPA" and it is the same bottle as the Fort. Have been using them to cellar beers and love them!

Does that DFH bottle take a "regular" 26mm crown or the 29mm crown? I've been collecting the Boulevard Smokestack Series 750ml bottles that are corked from the brewery but will take the larger 29mm crown. Also my LHBS stocks the same bottles new.

The Dogfish bottles take a regular 26mm cap. I've found a few other brands like that, but I can't remember what they are.

Lots of American champagne/sparkling cider 750ml bottles do likewise, though they're not often brown.

Garrison is pretty good, although there are better local breweries in my opinion.
Sorry to dig up an old thread, but must concur that Garrison (and most German import 500mL bottles) work fantastic for capping, my favourite volume and rarely get a bad seal with my cheapo wing capper. Less capping than all 12oz bottles but more practical than bombers

New Belgium come right off. Sam Adams are good too. Schlenkerla are good as well.

I think I was in this thread somewhere in the past, but will chime in now too.

Fullers bottles are awesome, built like tanks!!!!!

SN, Sam adams are long time staples.

I have been trying to get my hands on something a little different. The new red hook bottles are awesome, anchor steam bottles are cool. I would like to get the paint off of a bunch of redstripe bottles I own, but that is a different story.

New belgium bottles are cool, love the hoegardden bottles, and the short squatty belgium bottles (from various breweries) and nice.

I have recently got my hands on a few champagne type bottles like posted above that take 26mm caps and they are really cool. I plan on using them if we are invited over to a dinner party or something like that. Instead of bringing a bottle of wine for the hosts I will bring a bottle of home brew for them, if I think they like beer that is. I am going to make my own labels for them as well.

No need to buy bottles when there are so many options from commercial beers, plus you get the bonus of them already coming with beer in them!!!!
