Default Nips

Anyone know offhand if Nips use standard size caps? Was thinking about shipping some sample packs to people and was thinking that nips would be a good way to ship a variety of beers without weighing a ton.

Just have to find someone who drinks swill to drain them for me.

I had to look at the forum it was before clicking at work, was disappointed still.

What are NIPS in the beer world?

Are they all twist? I could swear I've had some that were real caps.

Nips are the small bottles you sometimes get in buckets. I think they're usually 6 or 8 ounces.

Sorry to dissapoint everyone with the title...

I might be able to use Coronitas. They'll be in dark packaging and the people I send them to won't let them sit beyond 24 hours!

Exactly. They'll basically be the same size you would get at a brewpub when you order the sampler.
