I don't know why some breweries insist on using green bottles, especially so many of the foreign ones. It's stupid - like if you went to the grocery store and they sold milk at room temperature.

They do sell milk on the shelves that don't need fridgeration. We used to buy it all the time.

It began as an advertising gimmick here in America.

I still buy Guiness now and again, and I will usually pick up some Harpoon or Wachusett if it is on sale, but I have pretty much converted to only drinking my home supply when at home. I got an IPA at a local MB that was good, but I actually thought that my regular ale was a)better tasting and b) hoopier than the IPA. I think that it is part "everyone likes their own cooking", and part "quality is inversly proportional to the profit margin"......that said, I still enjoy a lot of different types of beers, and love going to the MBs and taphouses, but I also know that, barring a catastrophic brew session, my home stuff is going to be at least as good, IMHO, and I am the only one I am trying to please in this department.
