Ugh, I hate Grolsch with a passion, but I just bought a whole bunch of it just for the 16 oz swingtop bottles. I wanted to earn them rather than buy this style of bottle at the LHBS. I have issues...

Anyone else put themselves through this? I just don't like any beer in green bottles with the exception of Canadian beer, which I typically only drink in Canada or if I am at a hockey game (Go Bruins!).

I am going to keg my Belgian Witbier, and I already have an Amber Ale in regular capped bottles but I wanted the swing top for my next brew (yet to be determined...but will be something light for summer).

Invite some friends over to watch a game and push the beer on them.

Grolsch is actually a decent lager, but you need to get properly stored bottles. Most of the time, they've been through large temperature swings and had a ton of light exposure. After that sort of treatment, no beer is good.

And make sure when you bottle in those green bottles you keep them out of light. Unless that is you want them to taste like, well, Grolsch.

I haven't been able to find a local place that I can do this at yet.

I never had Grolsch but plan to buy a case this weekend for the swingtop bottles. How much does a case of the swingtops run?

12x 16oz for 30$ or 12x 1 liter for 40$ at my LHBS. Online prices I've seen have been fairly similar.

Sorry, I was actually asking how much a case of Grolsch cost but thanks for that info as I was curious about that as well.

Around here, the bottles of Grolsch sell for $3 each.....so a case of 12 Grolsch is $36 Cdn.......this is why i won't buy them just for the bottles, i pay for them from the depot, much cheaper, and i don't have to drink the nasty beer.

Chadwell, i'm not sure what your local laws are, but around here we pay a deposit, then return them to the depot to get some of it back. So if you have no recycle depots in your area, then i'd start putting wanted ads for the bottles up on Craigslist (we have kijiji here) or any other classified ads looking for the bottles. Or i've read some ppl on here ask around the local restaurants and bars and give them away....Good luck..
