Nope, I've never bought an empty bottle in my life. Why buy empties when you can get them full of beer!!! Even if it's not very good beer...

your missing nothing. I have used grolch bottles for years and they are great. At one point I had a local bar owner saving his empties for me and I amassed quite a few. I gave cases of them away when I started with the kegs. I still have a case or two that I fill off the keg with a counter pressure filler.

The only downside to those bottles is the green color will not protect the beer from light. So store the beer in a dark space. Basement, closet, etc... Not in the sun room.

Your store is overcharging for bottles.
