That's a great size for taking to homebrew club meetings. Clear flip tops are hard to find.

I love clear bottles. Im gonna open it tommorow to see how much pressure its under. Im pretty confident it will hold under beer carbed pressure. Its just as thick as a regular grolsch bottle, and im assuming its alot more carbonated then beer would be. It even has a "warning: content under pressure" label on it...

Do you have any pets or even a wife? They love that kind of sh!t.


Nice bottle, you need to maybe buy about three more!


Dude, Target?

oh...the one off of Princess anne in V beach.

lol...i was looking for seltzer water, and it was up on the top shelf. Its really cool and has a little chateau/castle looking thing raised design on it, and some french writing and the year 1888. It would be great for a french ale, or belgian even...

My wife LOVES Lorina and I have several of those bottles. They actually make Lemonade, Pink Lemonade, French Lemonade, and Orangeade.

I can attest to the fact that those bottles are far more carbonated than most beer. I've actually had one of the lids shoot off the bottle when you pop the swing top.

I've used a couple of them already and plan on using more since I have an excuse to buy them.
For you Texas residents, I buy them at Central Market.

BTW... the French Lemonade and the Orangeade are the best tasting.
