Hey ya'll

as i'm planning to brew some smash recipes. I Would like to have it in smaller bottles as well...
Does anyone know of a good source for these? i dont feel like buying an 18 pack of coronitas just to get the 6-7oz bottles

TIA!

You could find a bar or Mexican restaurant that serves the smaller Corona bottles and see if they'd save you some?

The only luck I have had was I found clear 375ml champagne bottles, they can use a standard crown cap. This issue is they were not cheap, $30 or more per case of 24. I am betting the Coronas would be LOTS cheaper...

flying dog has a mixpack of their strong beers (the trippel, double ipa, barleywine, and imperial porter) that come in those small bottles.. you'd still have to buy beer to get them, but at least it's flying dog and not corona!
it's an 8 pack, called canis major.

when i was bottling, for every batch i'd fill up 3-4 of these.. they were good for someone to try who was new to craft brews. I had two mixpacks worth, so 16 of em.

Also, 375ml is actually a bit bigger than a regular 12oz bottle....

Northern Brewer has the 187ml champagne bottles (I'm guessing that's what you meant) at $25 per case. Midwest has them at $21/case. Add shipping and that's not much under $30 (if any).

Obviously someone makes small bottles for these guys. Anyone able to locate a source for them? I have tried and so far have been unsuccessful, but I would like to find some.

Why not see if you can find some Fruli beer. It is a "strawberry" beer. They come in 250ml brown bottles. I get some every now and then from a local liqueur store that sells alot of craft beers.
