Deschutes is may favorite. I think that hop vine makes it the perfect longneck.

Moosehead bottles are great becuase the labels come off extremely easy.

Most import's labels fall right off. Even Bud & Michelob's do. The worst tend to be the smaller micro brews.

I've caped two twist off bottles with my red caper by total accident and both ended up fine. I wouldn't risk a batch with them. I hate it when a good beer comes in a twist off.

What's the deal with Urquell?

Goose Island: The best beer by far that comes in a stupid twist off bottle IMHO.

The foil on Samuel Smith bottles and the whole dang label on Black Dog just doesn't want to come off. I've stopped using those two, but everything else I've tried soaks right off in an Oxiclean bath.

Except, of course, Guinness. I think I could delabel, dewidget, clean, and sanitize a guinness bottle in 20 seconds.

Franziskaner has the foil too. I love Those Bavarian style bottles and their labels come right off but the foil on top is such a pain.

Also, there's this crappy lager from I want to say The Czech Republic or Slovakia called Golden Pheasant. The bottles are cheaper than buying them from a HBS. The beer is a little above a BMC but I always grab one or two (20 oz.) when I'm at the liquor store just for the bottles.
