Anyone in and around the Toronto area know where to get bottles cheaply?

Cheers

Basically anything that I can cap with a bad capper. I just haven't built up a collection yet and I'm trying to avoid buying bottles from a homebrew store as there pricey.

I'm not picky on size. Let me know if you have any going spare happy to give you something for them.

Cheers

What are the prices you've seen so far? I'm looking for some more too but I just use that as an excuse to buy more craft beer!

Of course, the normal approach is to buy them full of beer and then dispose of the contents.

What do you pay for bottles in Toronto, if you buy them new? Here in Nova Scotia, the brown 650ml bottles are about 90 cents.

In Ontario, can't you buy bottles from any Beer Store? I bought bottles from one in Ottawa one time. I knew a guy behind the counter, but I didn't think he was doing me a favour. I just thought it was an everyday thing.

I buy Grolsch bottles from the bottle return depot here in Sask for .50/bottle. Of course they are dirty (some unusably dirty) and I have to clean them (which is pretty gross, but you only have to do it once).

Tack another dollar on that high number and that's what we pay for a full one here.
