I found that German bottles have labels that come off after soaking them in water only.

Sweetwater's are tough too.

That sounds a lot like Weyerbacher's labels, which I used to hate. After I discovered one little thing, they're now my favorite! I hit the label with a heat gun for a couple seconds and they peel right off in one piece, leaving virtually no residue. No soaking necessary.

You might want to give that a try with those Atlanta labels.

I had to soak my Corona bottle for 3 days before the label came off.

Sam Adam's labels come off very easily.

The English must be pro-homebrewer because Bass and Samuel Smith's are two of the easiest labels to remove.

Duvel - Those labels fall off if it is humid. The bottles are something like 11.2 oz. instead of 12 oz. though.

Actually, I soak my Corona bottles for about 3-4 days in a slightly concentrated Starsan solution and the paint falls right off.

Stop ruining the joke dammit!

I've used them for Lemoncillo. A soak for 3 days in B-Brite works great.
