Default Grolsch bottle woes

I bottled the batch of brown ale I made quite a few are nice and carbonated great flavor but I noticed that some are still these beers are in bottles that have chipped caps.

Should I try and drink the still beers or is there a chance they could be contaminated?

Do any of you know if someone can buy these Grolsch stoppers when they have some that are chipped?

Most any 'good' LHBS will carry these.

I say try them and see. What can happen?

+1 - open one and take a sniff and sip - if they taste fine and you can't do the still beer try half and half with a carb'd one.
