by unusual i mean anything other then the standard 12oz brown bottles. recently i've found a sierra nevada, some large guiness bottles, and a bunch of green bottles from heinekin and becks. what are some other beer companies that use unusual bottles that arn't twist off? I only have a few of the random sizes and want to wait until i have enough to do a full brew in matching bottles. what bottles do you guys like?

I recently had a long hammer ipa which was in a different bottle. Short and fat. Thought it was pretty cool.

Red Stripe is pop-off, but the labels are screen printed and damn near impossible to get off.

Orval bottles
are interesting (kind of look like potion bottles from video games) and they can apparently hold a crap-ton of pressure too.

It's called lucky beer or lucky Buddha I think. I've seen it at a few stores but never bought it. I might just to have a few bottles.

I really like these bottles but they're screw cap.
Guinness draught bottles are nice too. The plastic label peels right off no glue is used. They're heat shrinked on there.

Would be nice to find some unlabeled aluminum bottles.

I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
