I searched for this and decided to start a thread to make it an easier search. I have compiled some beer and beer companies that use pop top bottles for those of us that like to buy beer and then use the bottles.

I myself can not tell if the bottle is a twist off or screw off with the cap on, so I would like everyone add to the list I have complied from searching through all these threads.

Here's what I have. Please correct me if I have any incorrect info.

Here goes:

Guiness
Sam Adams
Red Hook
Celis
Schalafly
Big Sky
Saranac
Warsteiner
Boulder beer
Sierra Nevada beer
New Belgium
Fat Tire

As far as I know those are all pry-tops. I can add a couple of brands that I have laying around the apartment.

Fullers
Two-Brothers
Bells
Flying Dog
Samuel Smith
Anchor

Not necessarily for Sierra Nevada... I have an empty 6 pack of SN pale ale... Twist off. there are two others however that I just thought of: Michelob craft beer series and Bells.

There was a thread a while back that listed a bunch

There's also a wiki page with some listed:

For the record....Sierra Neveda went to twist off for about a year but then converted back to pop tops. Most micro and regionals will have pop tops while many commercial beers will have the twist offs. I did notice that locally Blue Point uses twist off.

It's pretty easy to tell. A couple hints:

* Twist off caps almost always have some sort of indicator - an arrow or the word "twist" or something to that effect

* Twist-off caps have visible "threads" on the sides, running at an angle to the bottle itself.

Of course, if you're in the store and the bottles are safely enclosed in a cardboard 12/24 pack, this won't do you much good.

I looked at quite a few in the liquor store and couldn't see anything under the cap or any kind of twist off indicator. Maybe they where all pry off tops. I didn't want to spend $10.00 on a six pack and get the wrong bottles.
