Grolsch rocks! (Well, not the beer, actually.)

Is this just the bottling aspect? Or does it include the cleaning aspect? By far, Stiegl bottles are the easiest to clean.. The labels slip of like panties on prom night...

In order of preference:

Corny kegs

Brown 16 oz flip-tops
Green 16 oz flip-tops (Grolsch)

Brown 12 oz micros (plain, no embossed/etched logos - Paulaner Hefe works great, and the labels practically fall off in hot water)
Sam Adams/New Belgium 12 oz

Brown 22 oz micros (most are painted...I don't bother trying to strip the logos)

I tend not to take the flip-tops outside the house for fear of losing them, so I usually bottle beer for social events and gifts in 12 oz pry-offs.

Favorite 12oz bottles are Red Hook, because the labels come off so easy. Also A draw-back, because they would require a custom sized home-made label

The Deschutes Brewing Co. bottles are by far the best, but not very common.

I'm in favor of the Grolsch 1.5L bottles too. 12 for a 5 gallon batch. Make great growlers too.
