Tonight I was going through my backlog of bottles that still had labels on them and giving them an Oxyclean soak and de-labelling.

When I removed the first Deschutes label and looked at it there was a noticeably large (about 1/4" in diameter) bubble in the glass.
Out of the 6 pack that I cleaned there were 4 that had largish bubbles in the glass. That's a recipe for bottle bombs!
I love Deschutes beer and will continue to drink it. I won't be saving the bottles any more, though.

Aren't those the ones with hop vines raised off the glass? I use them all them time and have never noticed any problems.

It is a good idea to inspect any bottle you use though.

I use em all the time. Never had problems. I never chked about bubbles though. The only thing I hate about them is the labels don't come off as easily as other brands

And I believe their Black Butte is bottled conditioned. So... that would leave me to believe they would be ok

I've used Deschutes bottles for years and no problems.

x2

On a side note, I am a big fan of Pacifico bottles...glass seems much heavier/thicker than domestics.

Don't use them. In fact, please send me all of your full bottles to be disposed of properly.

I like these too...they recently (last couple of yrs) seem to have switched to bottles with very small "lips" making it harder to cap.

Wernesgruener (found an Aldi) is my new fav bottle...nice pils...cheap....and very heavy glass.
