So far for the hardest for me to remove have been Short's and North Peak. All others have been rather simple and a soak in water gets the labels off with little work.

I think Great Divide Brewery uses JB weld to affix their labels. I had to scrub through what appeared at first to be a paper label. I like having another bottle after doing research on what else to brew but if a bottle is painted or the label is stubborn I have too many other bottles and friends willing to give me empties to mess with it.

UGH, I refuse to even attempt delabeling any Shorts bottles. Good stuff inside, but the bottles go back to the store for my deposit once they are emptied.

This is a GREAT bottle. Sorry to say I've not tried the contents. The bottle has a real nice feel to it, and the label practically falls off. I'll be stopping at the store on the way home from tonight to see if I can score a few more.

Samuel Smith is very easy to de-label, and I like the bottle shapes. Beers a little pricey but I like the Oatmeal Stout. But to save money I buy mostly Kirkland beer from cosco, good beer and I don"t care if I get the labels all the way off.

I love my local brewery, but they have these like photo labels. They are the biggest pain in the a$$ to remove. Even soaking in oxiclean for a week they are still almost impossible to remove.

Great beer, but bottles usually end up in the trash which sucks cause they are great 22 oz bombers.

Oxyclean free solution 1 day takes care of all of the labels I've threw at it, only a few Bells but two hearted slid off with ease.
