Default Costco Kirkland Beer -- twist or pop top?

Anyone know for sure if the 24 pack of of Kirkland signature beer is a pop top? I've read mixed reviews on this site and others, but the price is right and I could use some empty pop top bottles

It is Gordon Biersch beer and I didn't really dig it too much.

I am wary of beer from a company that also makes toilet paper and tomato sauce.

It's just a label, not like little Costco workers are mashing in and then rolling up toilet paper while they stir the tomato sauce for the pasta. As I said, Gordon Biersch makes the beer.

+1, i feel weird already eating from the same company i wipe my ass with.

havent seen it around my costco. havent been looking though, but 19 bucks a 24 pack of crafted beer is a pretty good deal.

Just as strackbucks roast the beans for their Kirklands coffee. it says so right on the bag. I have been impressed with Kirkland products, but more than anything its not a bad way to get bottles. My friends are over this weekend, they will drink anything so i am not too worried

I buddy of mine bought this a while ago. I didn;t have any, but he said some of them were "not bad" while some were "not very good." either way, I use the bottles, labels come off easy and they are all blank and ready for my labels.
