Default Small Sample Sized Bottles?

I'm looking for small, sample sized bottles. Maybe 6 - 8 oz.

I'd like to bottle a few of these with each batch to allow friends to sample my beer. Some of them normally don't like anything with more flavor than Bud Lite, and I'd rather not waste a full 12 oz bottle in case they don't like it. A neighbor once poured out a bottle because he didn't like it!!!

Maybe I'm being greedy with the beer?

Any sources that you could point me to?

Thanks!

That's something I have been on the lookout for as well. My wife likes beer, but doesn't drink a full bottle most night. So most of the time we split something that neither of us are exactly happy about. Anyway....

Look for pony bottles.

Im hoping to find brown pop-top 8oz bottles. Is that too much to ask? The only one I have see. Is Leffe, but that was in France, which is a little far for me to go to get bottles.

Glass Coca-Cola bottles! They're crown cappable. Only issue is they're clear. Wonder if another soda is available in small glass bottles?

I've seen a Goya drink in the grocery in brown pony bottles, but they are twist off. Drat.

Sounds like a big hassle just to save 4 ounces which equals just 2 beers from a 6 pack..........

So then maybe I am being greedy with my beer?

I was really hoping to find 6 oz bottles. Spread out over a dozen friends or so, it could help save a few bottles in case some don't like it. They seem to become more valuable as the inventory dwindles.

I'll be glad to share with friends who like the beer, but I still cringe when I think about my neighbor pouring a bottle out onto his lawn...

Rogue sells some of their beer in little bottles. I wish all breweries did it.
