I know a few beers that are POP-TOP, but i was hoping we could get a list going for me and other who would rather drink beer and save the bottles. Rather then buying empty bottles. Please don't just say imported beer i was looking for names and maybe color of bottles. POP-TOP

Just go to the liquor store, look at the caps, and if they read "Twist Off", don't buy 'em.

lol my thought exactly, by the time you have a list a few thousand names long, it will be easier to just look at the bottle at the store than try to remember which ones you should reach for.

There's often a thinner neck and a ridge under a twistoff cap that you can look for.

Sierra Nevada has gone back and forth between pry-off and twist-off several times in the last 10 years
