Anyone know offhand if Nips use standard size caps? Was thinking about shipping some sample packs to people and was thinking that nips would be a good way to ship a variety of beers without weighing a ton.

Just have to find someone who drinks swill to drain them for me.

I had to look at the forum it was before clicking at work, was disappointed still.

What are NIPS in the beer world?

Nips are the small bottles you sometimes get in buckets. I think they're usually 6 or 8 ounces.

Sorry to dissapoint everyone with the title...

I might be able to use Coronitas. They'll be in dark packaging and the people I send them to won't let them sit beyond 24 hours!

Exactly. They'll basically be the same size you would get at a brewpub when you order the sampler.
