I see it the same way - when I saw ten bucks for EMPTIES, I hid my outrage and bought a case of Stoudt's Red Lady Ale - in effect, buying a case of Stoudt's for fifteen bucks, is how I saw it.
I have used returnables that my beer guy will sell for a buck and a half a case, but I have decided that they are too beat up and frosted looking. So I stick to new bottles. I also have a buch of Bass Ale bottles (bottled in Canada so the bottles are North American size) that I use.
