I was at a store over the weekend that had several beers in ceramic bottles with a flip top. What I found odd was that they actually had a crown cap on them while the swing top was just flopped to the side. Sorry, I didn't get the brand names but they were around $10 per pint.

I'm assuming that since the ceramic is glazed that they hold pressure just fine. I was just a bit confused by why they had crown caps on them.

Has anybody seen these and/or put homebrew into them? I plan to pick up a few next time I'm at that store.

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

Well, I did see that one now that I think about it. The ones that are stuck in my head are beige, squattier (is that even a word ) and I think they were in the Belgium section. There were at least three different kinds.

Here is the store, for those who may live in central Florida.

trinitone, I have seven of those very bottles! Unfortunately I got them all empty. Fezzman they should all be glazed on the inside. I can't double check right now, I have some porter carbing in them at the moment.
