How big are you looking for? I've seen little bottles, maybe seven or eight ounces, for sale online. They are clear, though.

Yeah, and to keep some of the light out just make large labels...

The green grenade (Mickey's) is pretty readily available in this area but I have no idea how one would go about capping the big mouth.

Guinness makes these nice little 12oz bottles--make sure to get the Widget-less bottles, though. They're shorter and thicker than the standard 12oz bottle. They're dark brown, so I've been trying to collect as many of these as possible.

I have two cases of Red Stripe bottles that I love. However, you'll have to buff the burned-in label off with a power sander if you want 'blank' bottles.
