Default Grolsh bottle prices?

Just wondering how much most of you pay for your Grolch 16 oz bottles?

I haven't seen the Brown ones around here for several years now. Just green ones. It seems they've replaced the cermaic stopper with a plastic stopper. Probably last longer but doesn't seem as nice. Same shape though.

Funny thing, for a while you couldn't buy grolsch here in the bottle. Just 500ml Cans. I think the liqour board must have smartened up becasue the green bottles are back and are sellng for about the same price as the cans did. Currently $2.50 Canadian per bottle.

I wish they'd switch back to the brown ones. The green grolch always tastes skunky. I was buying it for the bottles but the skunky taste is kind of making me rethink that idea.

Yeesh, I bought four 16oz bottles of various imports the other day and it cost me more than it did to brew 5 gallons! Another reason I'm glad I started brewing again.

In the UK I've found one retailer selling 16oz bottles at £1.25 a bottle in green bottles.I bought 8 and have decided it's not worth me sacrificing drinking time on them.
I'd rather pay £1 per bottle from the LHBS for brown empties.
Given the price difference of 25p that I get the grolsh beer for, I'd say that's about the right value of the Grolsh. I'd rather have my HB made for around the same price.

I haven't seen the brown one in ages around here. A friend who went to N. Europe on vacation brought me back 12 empty brown ones, though! Best part of it was, I didn't have to drink a drop of Grolsch!

Oh the adavantages of living overseas.

I could do that when I was in the UK but down here in Texas, they don't return bottles anymore. I've tried and they aren't to be had.

Scott, They haven't done deposits for years now, off licences don't take returns all the supermarkets have recycle bins.
