Do bars still get their bottled beer in those hard cardboard cases with the reinforced bomb-bay-doors on top?
Back when I was in college those harder cardboard cases were dormroom packing gold. They were awesome for storing amd moving.
I need something like that for bottle storage, and something more presentable for filled bottles inside the house.

What are you all using?

I saw one person ordered online some cardboard 24 packs, had to buy them in bulk and spent over 100$ though, not sure if thats what I want.

I think it is a great idea for bottle storage.

I just use extra milk crates and stack them....I can usually get ALMOST a full case, about 21-23 bottles in each square crate depending on which type of bottles.

CL is a good start to look for some, that is where I found a bunch of mine.

When I buy enough stuff at my LHBS, they give me one of the boxes that their six packs come in to carry the stuff out in. Each box holds four six packs, so I just keep my bottles in six pack holders in the boxes. You could probably get them from a local liquor store if you wanted.

Just about all bottles nowadays are No-Return, so the cases have pretty much gone from the nice durable cardboard to the disposable paperboard.

What I mainly use are the 12 pack boxes of certain domestic brands as they're pretty sturdy. Brands that come to mind are Goose Island, Leinenkugels, and Sam Adams. I've also got a couple of Michelob Craft Series Sampler boxes that have a flap, making them somewhat recloseable. Not sure if they're all that way.

In the classified ads here some one is making and selling beautiful wooden crates for bottles.

a bar we barbecue at every week still gets Bud in bomb top boxes. They're returnable boxes I think.
