Rogue is another one I found hard to remove after an over night soak in PBW.

I guess that's why Westvleteren had no labels for so long. Sierra Nevadas are great, especially since they've been on sale for under $13 in NC off and on all Summer. Dark Horse labels suck - the ink disolves and leaves a residue on the bottles and the labels stay on.

That's a funny thought, maybe they're your favorite because the labels come off so easily?

When I started brewing, I'd almost exclusively buy Sam Adams since their labels come off for like, no reason.

Since quality is an opinion I can't say this theory can be tested! However, I did notice that larger breweries labels removed easier than most local microbreweries.

funny side note, after walking into a new beer purveyor in town, I bought a sixer of Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and laughed, saying, "These bottles are going to be a bitch to get the labels off."

lol

BTW, I now call buying commercial beer, "augmenting my bottle supply".

Both are excellent breweries.

Denny is likely right, it was just an amusing coincidence that I felt was worth talking about.

As for 3floyds being my fav because their labels come off easy...they have been my favorite brewery for years before I started home brewing.

Wasn't this all kind of tongue in cheek?

Don't want you all to think I've seriously considered this scientifically and am ready to begin concerted experimentation towards the goal of testing this hilarious hypothesis.

Well, Rogue doesn't use paper labels. They silk screen the bottles.
