aye. unless its a true import beer, it should be the same as any US produced pop-top bottle.
In fact the only references I've seen in catalogs for different size caps were for belgian lambic bottles, which are a thicker glass and often corker, then capped. I think these caps are a little larger.

I cap guiness draft bottles and heinies with normal caps, no problems.

Primary: English Mild
On tap: Pale Ale, Lancelot's Wheat, English Brown Ale, Steam Beer, HoovNuts IPA
