Answer: Yes. At least in MN.

You CAN cap bud light or any other twist off bottles, but some folks report it is a hit-and miss thing with the carbonation. Sam Adams makes pretty decent beer and the bottles work well for capping. It's avail. everywhere, too.

I had to pound down 4 cases of Blatz last month to get ready for Christmas. Decent bottles and nice boxes. Not too bad if it is ice cold and consumed quickly after a few home brews.

I drank a couple cases of Moosehead this fall. Nice green bottles for my Cider.

Sam Adams are also good bottles, as are Belle's

Not too long ago in college we used to get Old Mil and Rhinelander for less than you can buy new bottles for now.

im guessing you dont have Trader Joe's in Florida. but if you do, go get some 6-packs of Fat Weasel Ale. $3.99 / 6pk of what i consider to be gooooood beer in nice brown bottles. on my 1st batch i bought about 7 6-packs and emptied them into gallon jugs, which i drank over the weekend until it was totally flat.
