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.

My cousin is the manager of a sports bar. I can just go in there and dig through the recycling and get what I want. Lately they have been having a special on Fat Tire in the 22 oz. bottles. Too bad the recycling company came earlier that day. I ended up with only a couple of bottles. I would say to try a local restaraunt or bar that you regularly visit and ask about recycled glass.
