Default Unused 40 oz malt liquor bottles?

So, for the kitsch factor, i'd like to get myself a case of 40 oz bottles, without actually having to drink the **** in them, to use as 'growlers' to send beer home with friends. I've internetted my face off, and cannot find anywhere to purchased unused 40 bottles. Anyone?

In my neighborhood, a 40 is like $2. Do you think you're going to find them much cheaper online after shipping?

That was kinda the idea, yes. Should I just buy a bunch of Colt and pour it out for my homies?

I'd invite a bunch of friends over for a free beer party...probably a lot more fun than just pouring it out...

The number you need is gonna dictate the size of the party.. If you only need 15-20, just invite over a couple of open minded girls ..

Just buy some and pour a little out for the homies that didn't make it. You can get a king cobra for like 1.79.
