I discovered an easy way to label flip-tops: dry erase marker on the cap. Easily rubs off with a little water. I can't keep beer around long enough to justify fancy labels. Besides, the design on most flip-tops are fancy enough for me already.

Not much use for those south of the border but if you're in or around Vancouver BC and want to get the ez-cap 1 liter (33 fl oz) bottles used by Howe Sound Brewery (in Squamish) quickly, just give the brewery a call and organize a pick up... Me and the misses went and climbed The Chief then went over to the pub for lunch and picked up some bottles.

They sell them used for $0.75 each and they close the stoppers so they are not dried up or moldy, really easy to clean.

Bernard, I think you've been bested by Midwest (they sell them for $12.95 a dozen, as mentioned earlier in this thread).

For a limited time Midwest is offering cases of twelve 16 oz. EZ Cap amber bottles for $12.95. These bottles are perfect bottling homebrews, liquors and even wine. With a re-sealable cap mechanism these bottles will decrease your bottling time. These bottles do not require a capper, since they come complete with a Grolsch-style swing-cap (included). 40 bottles are needed for a batch of 5 gallons of beer. Click here for huge savings on bottles.
I have about 20 of these Midwest pint swing-tops. They are great, very heavy-duty. At this price, I don't see how you can go wrong.

That "limited time offer" Is over!!. They don’t sell them for that price anymore. Bernards Brew Shop used to sell them for $11.35. The new price is $18.00. Midwest Supplies price is $22.95. Right know Bernards brew shop has the lowest price. If you can find anyone lower please tell me.
How many cases can I put you down for?
