When I started brewing I went hog wild brewing a batch almost every week. So I was forced to use some twist off bottles. Some of them were flat when opened. All of them were tested for leaks at bottling time. I used a bench capper and new caps (regular caps). Just because a capped bottle holds a still liquid does not mean it will hold back back the forces of bottle carbonation. Granted it most likely user error with the capper.

I got the initial humor from the thread. I sorta feel the same way. Im not going to buy a bottle of beer that I cannot recycle into my own bottles for beer. Just makes more sense. So a ban or banish that company. Kinda like Bluepoint Brewery on Long Island. I think the beer is GREAT. But the bottles stink. Ill buy a 6 of SA because of the bottles. (plus the beer is good)

Shipyard is dead to me, because of ****ty beer....seems like everything i've had of their tasted like buttery diacetyl crap....IT was a Sampler with an IPA (which was just Ok, hops masked most of the diacetyl) Pale Ale, terrible, Old Thumper, terrible, and something else...I was not impressed

I have a hard time buying twist offs and even more so cans but I would say you better get use to the idea of cans they sure seem to be taking more and more of a foot hold in the craft.

I like to reuse the bottles too. I must say though, I just tried the Shipyard pumpkin and it was awful.

It is probably just a screw (ha) up. I bought a 6 of local brew (Sweetwater IPA) and it was in twist offs. I called the brewery and they flipped out. Said they would never go to twist offs and it had to have been a slip up by the supplier. They offered me a free case if I brought the bottles to them but I had already recycled them. Have never had a twist off from them before or since.

I stick with 22oz bottles and don't worry about twist off.

I remember going through that phase when I was after bottles. Now I have several hundred bottles with no room for them. I bet if you contacted a local brew club you could get other brewers' excess empties and have more bottles than you will ever need.

The OP is missing out on the greatness that is Oskar Blues brewery, as they can all of their beer. The trend is certainly to can everything, so maybe in a few years the OP won't have anything to drink at all. Poor OP!
