Default Other than Grolsch...

Are there any beer makers out there that sell their beer in either the grolsch size (15 oz) or the big liter size flip top bottles?

I have found it is cheaper to buy the bottles full of beer than empty

Not that I know of. There is beer for sale lately in my area that are 12oz swingtops, but at $1.99 each, that makes for some expensive bottles!

Privatbrauerei Schwelm uses brown half liter (16 oz? not sure) flip top bottles. I've only been able to find it in 4 packs around my area.

Grolsch are 16.9oz about 500 mL

Ikea has 34oz clear swing tops for $1.99 each.. but they are clear

or you can just go to Germany, just about everything is in 500mL swingtops

I wish there were an easier way to get ahold of some of these. I just keep buying Grolsch for $6.99/4 pack... The beer is OK, but the bottles are fabulous.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/kaps...bottles-95687/; Haven't hear results yet, but I use Grolsch personally- $32-$36 (forget what it's at now) for a case at local distributor, and I get to drink beer!

Fischer LaBelle and Salvator to name a couple. Go to Bevmo and go crazy, they have many that are swingtops. Look for German and French beers, also some Belgians.

If you have a LHBS then it is likely they have Glosh style brown bottles for sale in 16 and 24oz styles... my local also has 32oz styles but they are only sold in sixers and cost a blood fortune... also search the net for them

cheers
