I'm looking for some short bottles, much like Red Stripe bottles. I've always loved the look of them. Does anyone know where to get them? I've heard that you can take Red Stripe bottles and soak them in something to get the paint to come off. But If I can just purchase them that would probably be better.

-Thanks!

Sierra Nevada bottles de-label with hot water...next to Sam Adams the 2nd easiest to de-label. I collected a case or two just from asking coworkers to buy some and give me the bottles...heh. The Anchor bottles are pretty cool as well for stronger ales.

Midwest had some for silly cheap, but they're out:

Hmm, Sierra Nevada's bottles do look pretty sweet.

Maybe I will go for those haha.

Thanks for the input people.

Actually a new Michigan brewery "North Peak Brewing Company" just started using them. I don't know if they are available out your way, but I am excited. And the beer is pretty tasty as well.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

Another Michigan brewery, Founder's uses a stubby bottle, They are very near the SN bottles but with a label recess. The best part is they are filled with delicious beer, IMO!

I like the round looking bottle like that Siren bottle. It looks almost exactly like Red Stripe.

Yeah, the differences are subtle, I thought they were exactly the same until I just put the two together to take a pic for you.

and their "big" bottles are sweet, two. they use 24 oz bottles instead of 22s, but the bottles are "stubbier" looking.



And they're really big beers come in 750 mL bottles, that's 3.36 more ounces per bottle than a typical bottle! Huzzah!
