No, seriously, look



We got a sixer of 60 minute and two bottles were in Sam Adams bottles! We kept one with the beer in it, but we wanted to be sure there actually was DFH in the bottle, so we opened one. Yes Virgina, DFH goes dumpster diving for bottles like the rest of us :)

I think that this is great! It's nice to see a company that recycles and isn't concerned with displaying a competitors logo.

Have you thought of contacting DFH? I'm just curious what their response would be.
Not yet, maybe they'll hook me up with a lifetime supply of DFH for keeping quiet? (hmm, should have thought that one through before posting...)

None of you saw this! It didn't happen!

I'm not surprised they reuse bottles but you think QC would catch the ones with marks on the glass. Oh well, as long as the beer tastes good.

I agree with the others that say its cool - why not reuse them if they come in through some sort of channel and they are clean. If every mfg used brand new bottles every time they would have to raise the prices.

Maybe that can be their new motto -- We let Sam Adams buy us our bottles so we can keep our prices more reasonable.

Too late.

Picture downloaded...

Email sent to DFH...

Lifetime supply is on its way to my house, along with $1,000 hush money.
