Shipyard Brewery...you're dead to me
Since I have recently started brewing my wife knows there are only two rules when picking up beer;
1. bottles
2. no twist offs

Shipyard had to go and bottle twist offs, with no indicator of being a twist off.

Seriously? Being in a twist off (or a can) is never a reason to shun a brewery. Making ****ty beer... now that's a reason to shun a brewery.

I complain about everything, so its weird for me to ask... did I miss something?

it's minor, wife stopped for beer on her way home from work. Picked up a sixer of Shipyard Pumpkin (I know it's still too early in the season). She was careful to check if it was a twist off. Nothing on the cap signaled it was a twist off. Popped one open and the first thing I see is that it is a twist off. I haven't had to recycle a bottle all summer.

Maybe they screwed up and got the wrong bottles. It happened to DFH. I have a bottle of their pumpkin ill have to check it out.

If it's minor, then why are they dead to you? Based on the tone of your initial post, it sounded like you thought you were too good for twist offs.

Nothing wrong with twist offs. If you are hard up for bottles go to a bar and get five or ten cases of them for free.

I don't buy any commercial beer that is in twist-off bottles.
It seems a lot of companies are going the stealth twist-off route.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess, but this is just such a foreign concept to me. If your favorite beer in the whole world suddenly became available only in twist offs, would you stop buying it just because it was in a twist off?

Well now, you WERE waiting for an excuse to buy a bench capper, weren't you? :ban:
