Combination - I drink some Grolsch and ask any friends that do to keep their bottles for me. The brew place I go to sells them new although they are brown. They sell them for $1.99 but I can buy Grolsch beer for $2.75 so its a better deal for me to drink beer! I always knew that. Also the brew place I get my supplies from sometimes have used ones. I got 17 the other day for $.15. I only started collecting bottles a few months ago and I already have enough for a batch (around 50). Here in Ontario people return their bottles to The Beer Store and I've asked to buy any off of them but so far they haven't had any and they are reluctant to do this anyway. Apparently head office has told them not to. It was also suggested to me I could approach the pubs that serve Grolsch and ask to buy their empties however their are not any bars that serve Grolsch in my area. Hope this helps.Michael_Currie said:Did you buy those bottles in bulk or just collected them? If you bought them where did you get them from.
