Most grocery stores carry them. Of course, they come pre-filled with Corona.

This. You won't find a cheaper way to buy and ship that much glass, and you may as well get beer for your trouble.

You'll have a easier time removing the label off these..Corona's are painted on.

Fiesta, always going to be my vote.

Or… Post, email, call your friends. You know some of them go through corona like we go through HB. Suppliers for clear glass are few and far between.

Here are clear bottles, but they are twist on: http://www.containerandpackaging.com...0&0&list&0&0,0

Go to a pub that sells beer in clear bottles and tell them to keep them for you and pick them up ASAP

Good idea. Also check with your local mexi-food place. They usually serve Modelo.

As an idea of how quickly they add up. I started drinking Modelo when i started a 5 gallon batch of Skeeter Pee. It took me less than a month between me and a couple of friends to get up to 70 bottles. I just started buying 12ers of Modelo instead of the usual Alaskan/Henry's/SN.
