Here is why a homebrewer should buy this beer in the six pack or case:
The bottles are AWESOME for homebrew. They look larger than some other bottles. They are a stout, stick glass with good, easy to grip nubs and knurls. I really like to rebottle in these, they are much thicker looking than most bottles I've recycled with homebrew. They didn't go overboard with the AB markings in the glass.
Conspiracy Theory: I think AB made the bottles this way to lure homebrewers into buying the beer. How else are you going to get people who usually scoff at Bud to buy AB?
Anyway: A 6'er is 6.79 in NJ and a case at Sam's is 21 bucks. So invest in a few cases and get yourself some really impressive looking homebrew bottles.
I view the liquid held by the bottles as a perk for buying the bottles.
