Longneck, Industry Standard Bottle (ISB) // North American longneck
A North American longneck is a type of beer bottle with a long neck. It is known as the standard longneck bottle or industry standard bottle (ISB). The ISB longnecks have a uniform capacity, height, weight and diameter and can be reused on average 16 times. The long neck offers a long cushion of air to absorb the pressure of carbonation to reduce the risk of exploding. In Canada, in 1992, the large breweries agreed to all use a 341 ml longneck bottle of standard design, thus replacing the traditional stubby bottle and an assortment of brewery-specific long-necks which had come into use in the mid-80's. The Canadian stubby bottle was traditionally 341 ml (11.5 U.S. fl oz; 12.0 imp fl oz) while the US longneck was 355 ml (12.0 U.S. fl oz; 12.5 imp fl oz). In Australia the term longneck is applied to bottles of 700-750mL capacity.
