Hey everybody - you might look into this. My father-in-law was eating in a bar the other night and asked the owner about the returnable AB bottles. Get this. They gave him 3 cases for free, with the good commercial bottle boxes, and said they would only charge future cases at $0.60 per case. Yes, per case.
All I did - soaked the bottles in hot bleach water - and the labels practically fell off.
Now that's saving money.
