Guess that depends on your settings. I only see 67 pages. But I will add to it.

Thank you all for following along with my story.
I have a question for you all.
As you may, or may not, know my brewery is on the way to Yosemite National Park which means a lot of tourists, campers and hikers. Which do you all think is a better route to go, 22 oz. glass Bombers or 16 oz. plastic PET bottles with screw on caps? I'm leaning towards the PET bottles because they are plastic, light weight and resealable. They are a little more expensive to buy and would probably be sold individually as opposed to 6-packs.
I'd appreciate any feedback on this subject.
Thank you.

I'd go with PET in that setting.

I like the lighter weight of the PET simply based on your location. Even a PET growler would be cool. Does beer stop Hantavirus?

I'd offer both to be honest. - PET for the hikers who want some craft beer on the trail and glass for when they come back and wanna take a 6 pack (or case) home with them! The park doesn't allow glass right? Most parks don't - that's where you'd make your money on the PET containers (and their a lot lighter for the hikers).

As weird as beer looks in PET, it tastes pretty much the same. And would be much more Yosemite friendly. PET FTW!
