I was trying to find a wholesale seller of the 16.9 oz. "Franziskaner style" bottles and didn't have any luck. I want to use them to bottle homebrewed beer and soda for wedding favors and need about 200 or so. Any idea where I can buy some in bulk? I like Franzisaner but not that much to drink 200 bottles, neither do I want to bother with peeling labels this time around.

Russian river uses the same 500ml bottles but labels can be a bitch to get the residue off of

maybe they can refer you to a supplier in the states

Can't help you with where to get them new, but I can tell you that the labels on most imports that use those bottles come right off with a brief soak in hot water. I use those bottles exclusively.
