I'm trying to find out where I can get the technical specifications for standard bottles on the market today. I've tried google, wolfram-alpha, and all I seem to get back are either sites to buy bottles or countless conversions of 12 ounces.

What I want is, angles, proper circumference, things I would give to a glass manufacturer in order to have bottles made. Anyone know of a good resource?

How about contacting bottle manufacturers directly?

You'd probably want to go to someone who already manufactures bottles anyway unless you're planning on paying for tooling. What kind of quantity are you looking for? I came across a site that sells bottles by the pallet not too long ago, but I can't recall the name.

Well, I'm just trying to get the basic templates because I see a lot of bottles put out by a lot of breweries that I see nowhere else. So I'd like to get some basic templates and go from there for design, future costs, etc. I have no idea whether or not manufacturers would be willing to give that information out, which is why I thought I'd start here.

Why not just make your own design in a CAD program, since you're looking for something custom already
