If I were giving beer to friends, I would probably make it clear that the tap stops when the bottles don't come back, rather than go through the expense marking my bottles permanantly. I guess I'm naive, but I figure I'm doing THEM a favor by giving them something special. If I ever get to the point of giving beer to friends, I'll make it contingent on THEM supplying ME with bottles first
No bottles, no beer...
