+1 on the Sam Adams bottles. Probably 1/2 my extensive stock of bottles are Sam Adams, and the labels do come off in oxyclean almost completely without bother.

+250 to Sam Adams bottles. Best for labels coming off. I like Sierra Nevada bottles cause they're cool and the beer is great. But their label are a little more stubborn then SAs

I've been using Guinness bottles, my roommate loves the stuff. The labels are just shrink plastic and the widgets are easy to pull out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I actually left the labels on some of them and bottled my own Irish stout in them and snuck them to the roomie. He commented that Guinness must have improved their recipe or something
