Well, the thing with bottles is shipping. It's expensive to ship all that glass. Corona bottles filled with beer, or your clear bottle of choice (I think newcastle and MGD are screw cap, unfortunately), will be cheaper in your grocery store than empty bottles even in your LHBS because the big companies ship in bulk, saving them tons and tons of money. I say throw a mexican fiesta and buy a few cases of corona to hand out. Better than pouring them down the drain.
I can't be arsed to keep up this list of what's in the fermenters, but hey, check out the cool brewery I own!
