Default List of beers with swing-top bottles

A google search and a search through this forum yielded nothing, so I figured I'd open it up to committee:

I'm interested in starting a collection of swing-top Grolsch-style bottles, however for those of us too cheap to buy empty bottles, and who strive to drink better beer than Grolsch, I was hoping we could start a definitive list of beers that come in swing-top bottles. It would be a good reference to have.

Cool, I just bought some Grolsh last week for the first time...just because of the bottles. There where two other beers I saw at the liquer store....but i don't remember what they where. Some other lager....eh. And another one with a swing top bottle that was a little larger size....but they where a little pricey. I'll pay more attention next time.

Kapsreiter Beer Landbier
The Kapsreiter Beer comes out of an old Austrian brewer family in the Upper Austrian province Innviertel. Since the setting up in 1590 the company tries to maintain a culture and way of life of brewing beer.

1 pint +0,9oz Swingtop is Ceramic $4.29 USD per bottle.

Tastes a lot like Grolsch but the bottles are brown and the tops are ceramic! Perhapse it is a bit better beer than grolsch but not much. That said, I enjoy both brews and don't mind drinking my way to having more swingtop bottles. I would never pay for a swingtop that did not already contain beer!

Me. Not a fan. My wife would rather be forced to drink a PBR, a Natty, then a Milwaukee's Best, than have to drink a Grolsch - and she's as big a beer snob as I am.

FWIW, there is a new vodka out that bottles with swing tops. It is called 360 Vodka, and they are in efforts to save the environment with reusable bottles, yadda, yadda. A 1.75 cost less than thirty dollars at the grocery store in my town, and the smaller liter bottles are around nineteen, methinks. I have been tempted to buy a couple of the 1.75s for bottling cider and mead. If you factor in the cost of a one liter swing top from your LHBS, it comes out to be like twenty four dollars for the vodka, plus the cool bottle.

My $.02.

I guess it all comes down to taste preference but, unlike those other beers you mentioned, I doubt you'd find a gram of rice in the grain bill of Grolsch.

The Devil's Elow IIPA is pretty good!
