Yeah, you can. Somehow I got some twist offs mixed in with my bottles and didn't even realized I had used them until I opened my beers. Not sure how that happened because I don't even buy beer that normally comes in twist offs.

At any rate, the beer I had bottled with them was fine. I took them out of the rotation anyway though just to be safe.

Well, I wish I had your opinions before I bought it. I tried all the varieties last night and none were that great. I won't be buying it again.

The consumer affairs rep got back to me this morning and offered to send me a t-shirt.

I use twist-offs all the time. Never had an issue.

So you can advertise their mediocre beer?

Wear the shirt but add "more jagged shards of glass than any other brand!" with a fabric marker.

Hmm. I thought their IPA, pale ale, pale bock, porter, and oktoberfest were pretty good. Of course the shards of glass were probably making cuts in my stomach and making the alcohol enter my bloodstream faster. I think they are on to something. Oh wait, chewing tobacco already cornered that market.

I think we all make more broken glass bottling our own over time than a couple rare cases that make it past a brewery's QC department....

I made the same mistake by buying a case. Screw top bottles that I will not use, and beer that was OK.

For the record, I primarliy drink IPAs, Porters, and Stouts. Of the types I have tasted, I have only had one bottle each, but the pale bock seemed too sweet, almost cloying. The stout was average, and the Kolsch was not too bad. I have not been able to bring myself to try the IPA.

The IPA is their best one. None of their beers are great, and that stout is one of the worst stouts Ive ever had, but keep in mind at $9 a case its easily the cheapest variety pack of craft brew out there. You get what you pay for.
