Basically what commercial beer do you buy to reuse bottles? I prefer pry-off over twist for recapping personally but interested to hear what others normally (or have) gone with.

Sierra Nevada at Costco. Short, pry off, relatively heavy glass. My #1 choice.

Deschutes. They have a embedded strand of hops that go around the top of the glass. Very classy!

I've been grabbing whatever looks tasty from the package store. Home brewing gives me plenty of reason to buy lots of beer - FOR THE BOTTLES, duh! At least, that's what I tell the wife...

SN Torpedo for the 24 oz bottles, and Mac's Amber 22 oz. The labels on both of these just fall off.

Ninkasi 22 ouncers are great. The labels peel right off.

Yeah, their sticker labels are great.

Michigan craft beer especially Founders and an occasional SN for the stubbies. I have friends that drink often but don't brew, so they bring me cases of Bells and such. They accumulate fast.

New Glarus from Wisconsin! Best microbrewery in the US IMO, bottles are the classic amber regular shape, unmarked, labels come off easily, and not criminally priced like others.

I'm also a fan of Deschutes. Cheap, delicious, and labels come right off.
