Bombers are a win win. Faster to bottle, and easier to store... and 2 bombers sounds better to say you drank instead of 4 beers, lol.

Topher - certainly know Oscar Blues well and have spent many a night at the pub. That said I probably won't have a Dale's (outside of a bar/restaurant) the net few weeks.

My favorite commercial beer only comes in green bottles in the US, so I started the work on cloning it a long time ago. You know, BREWING beer.

Your favorite commercial beer is Heineken?

Seriously, though, you completely missed the point. I'm done here.

What about something in a corked 750? I'd sure love it if my significant other came home and surprised me with a bottle from Boulevard's Smokestack series.

Corkables always have a place in the rotation

I'm pretty sure my wide won't bring home a corked bottle expecting it to be a capped bottle.

"Stealth twist-off"? You're kidding right? I can tell a twist off cap half way across the room. The tell-tale signs of the threads give it away. Now if it was the SWMBO or the g/f that picked them up, that's a valid excuse.

Otherwise, shame on you!

Not the best pic, but an example of what to look for... You can see the thread through the cap metal. (Right and slightly lower of the "twist off" words)

when all breweries used big cap torquers like a turbofil, those marks were a dead givaway. Now a lot of small breweries are using cheaper equipment like a pneumatic Jetflow or crowner turret to press caps onto screw top bottles with no thread indents.

I have several cases of Shipyard pry-off bottles. They changed to twist-offs a few years ago. I wonder why?
