I wouldn't buy a beer I didn't like just to get the bottles. My collection of 16 oz. flip-tops comes from the $1 special MW offers when you buy a kit. Since I'm shipping the kits anyhow, it doesn't really add any cost. I'm up to about 20 now....

I am pretty sure Grolsch makes beer in brown bottles too. I've never bought it myself, but I found about 8 of the green bottles in my basement. Must have picked them up from somewhere and forgot about them. Now what to do with them...

I actually do it quite often. My favorite Micro uses screw tops.

The wife likes lots of beers I don't so when I buy to her style, I make sure I can use the bottle. I also have two kids who are both out of college and when they come home all their friends head over here. I buy them Miller Lite and Bud Light in the 16oz plastics. Works great for me... I get bottles without drinking swill or having to watch a bunch of people just looking to get drink suck down all my beer!

Chadwell-
When I still lived in Boston/Cambridge, we used to take shopping carriages and go down the street before BFI or WMI did. We'd usually get enough bottles to buy a couple of racks of Yeungling's Black and Tan pint cans every day. You just gotta get a hold of the schedules and see which neighborhoods get their recyclables picked up on which days.
This way you'd have $ from the screw-tops and cans, and pry-tops for your brew.
The various parts of Newton were good. As were the campus housing areas (not the dorms, tho).

I was in the same boat. Grolsch just doesn't taste good to me. Although I find that if I add some lime to the beer it cuts down on that nasty skunky taste.

Fischer uses amber flip tops for many of their brews. They're not bad.

I use Grolsch to add bubbles to the bath-water I wash the dogs in....
Makes their coats shiny and cost half of what the vet wants for the prescription stuff.

Flensburger Pils from Germany has brown flip tops, can you get that in the USA?

I've done it too. I hate it too. But worth it for the bottles. I buy 4 packs of 16oz. in NJ for $7-$8. I just wish they were brown.
