I've got cases and cases of clean, empty bottles that I'll never use again. Some I bought at the HBS, some are cleaned-out commercials.

I ain't shipping them, but if you're local, I'd like to have them out of my house but want them to go to someone who can use them.

Figuring that I'm not the only person that's "graduated" to kegging, all of us who have cases of empties that we'd like to get rid of could post here. Keep it all simple - a one-stop swap spot.

EDIT: Here's a spreadsheet that twobrain built to keep track of who's got bottles and who needs them. You should be able to update it yourself.

I've got several cases in Michigan, I keep offering on the michigan mashers. They're even in milk crates...I can pass on at least two crates full maybe 4 and still have plenty for my needs.

Pol I think that we should state that if anyone is interested in the bottles should really just PM the particular person in the geographic area they are interested in to make arraignments. I don't plan on keeping subscribed to this thread, so I won't be checking it all that often. SO Metro Detroiters will need to contact me.

I've been saving any non-screw cap bottles and have accumulated far more than I need. Long necks, stubbies, bombers, you name it. I'd like to keep a few dozen but I have a lot more.

I have a least four cases of clean, de-labeled, 12-ouncers to give away in the Austin area. I'm always collecting more so shoot me a PM if you want 'em.

If you want to give me a sixer of craft brew in exchange for my trouble that would much appreciated!

I have a bunch of assorted bottles to give away in Cleveland OH. Pick up only please. I'm actually in Willowick if that helps anyone.

Bottles are clean. Most still have labels on. Some are screw cap, I'm just too lazy to sort them out. PM me if interested. Offer is on the table until the last week of February 2010, then they will get trashed.
