Alaskan Brewing Co uses the same bottles as SN, and their one label (as opposed to SN's 3 labels) comes off 1000x easier than SN's, and is easier to clean as well.
Alaskan has my vote for stubby bottles from now on.
SN's boxes are much better, though, if looking at storage options.
Kegged: Tangerine Saison, Liberty Cream Ale, Tumbleweed American Brown
On Deck: All Brews Subject to Change With No Reason - loving small batch brewing AND Kegging!
