Good price for bottles Review by John
Packaging was good; however, I did have two broken bottles in one box, the other box was fine. I'm sure it the UPS's fault, which is why I didn't take away a star. Order came fast and no other complaints at this time. Thanks NB (Posted on 7/29/14)
A Must Have If Not Kegging or If Gifting Review by Matt
These bottles are great! I have NOT broken one. It is nice to have fresh brand new bottles that come well packaged and retain the bottle separators for easy and safe storage...even when you have full bottles for conditioning. I use waterproof vinyl labels which peel off easily without residue etc. This is a great buy if you need bottles! Save yourself time...and in reality, money (time = money)...by eating the small cost in buying these bottles! (Posted on 3/31/14)
Nice bottle Review by Dustin
These arrived and all were in good shape. The box will be good for storing during conditioning. The cost was better than anywhere else I found them. (Posted on 3/29/14)
They were empty. Review by Matt
I ordered these and I got beer bottles. They were empty. (Posted on 1/6/14)
Good Bottles Review by Ty
These are good solid bottles. A few very minor imperfections but nothing that affects capping or drinking. Plus if you use NB reusable bottle labels the imperfections disappear. (Posted on 1/1/14)
Good product overall Review by Sarah
Good product. Although, had one bottle break while capping, and another chip as well. (Posted on 12/25/13)
Excelent Product! Review by Damion
These are perfect! real inexpensive as well. anywhere else sells them for around 20 dollars just for 12 and these are just under 12 dollars for 24. great deal. I have already ordered 2 cases and will probably order more. (Posted on 12/4/13)
Simply Perfect Review by Justin
There's only so much you can say about a beer bottle. Just as described. All worked great. The dividers they include are nice to keep them from rattling together. (Posted on 12/3/13)

Great Deal on Brown Bottles! Review by Brian
These brown bottles were a great price and arrived in excellent condition! (Posted on 11/24/13)
Gerat Review by LAWRENCE
I mean, what can you say....they're brown bottles & do what they should. What's really great is the packaging & convenient box they come in. Great for bottle conditioning with individual "pockets" for storage. (Posted on 11/24/13)
Packaged Well Review by Carmen
Never a problem getting these safely shipped. High quality bottles. (Posted on 11/22/13)
Nice brown bottles Review by David
Received intact. Worked well for brewing my first batch. Easy to cap and no bottle bombs. As mentioned above, the shipping box works very nicely for storing clean bottles. (Posted on 11/15/13)
awesome!!!! Review by robert
what can I say? they were free!!! (Posted on 11/13/13)
thin Review by PETE
bottles are thin & capping necks are short not the best (Posted on 11/11/13)
Great buy Review by Robert
Nice clean bottles. The box is a good place to store your recently brewed and bottled beer during conditioning. (Posted on 11/8/13)
Wonderful bottles Review by Steffen
I'm very happy with these bottles. I planning to buy a couple of more cases asap! (Posted on 11/8/13)
Good Bottles Review by Nathan
Exactly as ordered. Works with standard capper. (Posted on 11/4/13)
They Work Well Review by JMA
They are a bit thinner than bottles that you may have recycled from previously purchased beer, but that does not seem to matter. I suspect the beer companies need heavier grade bottles to cope with the shipping of their product, something us home brewers don't need to worry about. If you despise cleaning and removing the labels off of recycled beer bottles, then go ahead and buy these. (Posted on 11/3/13)
Recommend these to others. Review by James
Not much you can say about the glass bottles. Packaging for shipping with protective cardboard slots and cardboard neck retainer makes for safe shipping and for safe storage of bottled beer. Local suppliers put the bottles in box with no separating packaging so I plan to buy again. (Posted on 11/1/13)
Great Deal! Review by Kimberly
These bottles were free with bottle rack! Can't ask for better than free!! (Posted on 11/1/13)
Great bottles Review by James
Received in great condition. I continue to use the shipping box for storage of clean bottles.

Great for small batching and gifting Review by Nicholas
These bottles are perfect for the home brewing. The lips on the bottles fit any capper with ease, and the bottles fit perfectly in a re-used 6 pack for easy gifting. (Posted on 10/24/13)
trouble keeping them full of beer Review by Trent
No complaints on the bottles, good and sturdy, just can't seem to keep them full of beer. (Posted on 10/18/13)
Great product! Review by Michael
Product arrived fast and unbroken. (Posted on 10/15/13)
Good bottles Review by Keith
Packaged well and made it through shipping without breaking. I have experienced how parcel workers handle parcels in transit so I was curious to see if they arrived all in one piece. (Posted on 10/15/13)
Fantastic Product Review by Jacqueline
Good sturdy bottles! We love being able to reuse these and not have to worry about being gentle! (Posted on 10/12/13)
Safe shipping Review by Jeremiah
All bottles came intact and fast shipping. (Posted on 10/12/13)
Good Bottles Review by Gary
Used for my first brew. They travel well, took a case to the scottish games this weekend and had no broken bottles. (Posted on 10/7/13)
By comparison great deal! Review by Dyan
They came in great condition. I was concerned about shipping glass but al was fine. Very happy! (Posted on 9/29/13)
Well worth the money Review by Josh
All bottles came unbroken. For the price, it beats hunting for empties and peeling labels off. The box is also nice for storing bottles. (Posted on 9/28/13)
Excellent product for small brews Review by Leon
I prefer the 22 oz bottles after receiving these: therefore, 4 stars out of 5. However, they do have their pluses. They are great for those last few drops that wont fill the 22 oz bottles.

Also, like someone mentioned "Who drinks only 12 oz anyway?" (Posted on 9/25/13)
Perfect transaction and great product Review by Gregory
Bottles arrived in expected time, and after one bottling session, not one break, leak, or problem. I am planning on purchasing another set soon. (Posted on 9/16/13)
Excellent Review by Hal
These bottles were shipped here with the right amount of protection. No chips or broken bottles when they arrived. Excellent job! (Posted on 8/22/13)
Great product Review by John
Great product the box is heavy and no chance of breakage. Very impressed (Posted on 8/22/13)
good bottles, weak box Review by luke
Bottles are good, nothing special, they are just bottles. I wish the box was constructed out of heavy cardboard, it seems like it won't hold up long over time. (Posted on 8/20/13)
Exactly what you ordered Review by Michael
Packaged great and came a few days after I placed my order. No complaints. They will do just what you need them to do. (Posted on 8/13/13)
no issues at all Review by John
will continue to use these (Posted on 8/10/13)
Solid bottles Review by Ryan
Solid bottles, no issues. I love the boxes they come in. Handy for storing bottles, full or empty. (Posted on 8/9/13)
You get what you buy. Review by Gregory
All the bottles came without any breaking. Bottling with them went well. Good stuff. (Posted on 8/8/13)
Be careful when capping! Review by rod
The necks on about half of the bottles in one case would snap off about an inch down when opening. Not a problem with all the other cases. Just wish I could have saved the BEER! L.O.L.

fantastic bottles Review by salvatore
I love these bottles they work very well for home brewing. packed to ship. It's a must buy. (Posted on 7/13/13)
Veery pleased with serice!! Review by Dennis
I ordered these bottles and they arrived within 4 days, very well packed. Very happy with the service!! (Posted on 11/2/12)
great product Review by surginurse
Order received promptly. Very well packaged with no broken bottles. Bottled my first brew today and all bottles capped first try. Due to size and weight of package be prepared to pay as much for shipping as you pay for the bottles. No regrets on the purchase. (Posted on 10/4/12)
Bomb proof packaging Review by Jason
Seem to be good bottles, couldn't have been packaged any better. Double wrapped in the heaviest bubble wrap I have ever seen.

I did weigh them, and compared to the cases of bottles I bought at my local brew shop, these bottles are 7 oz and my local shops are 10.25 oz. I don't know if that matters or not, but it is a big difference in glass weight. Because of shipping, I will stick with my locals in the future.

The cardboard case these come in was much nicer then the ones from my local shop. Heavier and has handle knock outs. (Posted on 9/15/12)
Great bottle Review by Garrett
I picked two cases of these battles and I am very pleased with the quality. I considered reusing the bottles from my favorite commercial brews. But then I would have all different shaped bottles. Not very professional. The cardboard case is also of good quality and handy for storage. I will be purchasing another two cases very soon. (Posted on 7/9/12)
As advertised Review by Joshua
Made of brown glass as advertised.....lol

Packages very well.... (Posted on 5/7/12)
Brown and Glass Review by TV
I purchased a case of thesee about a year ago and found them just as good as the commercial bottles. I also recycled a few cases from my local tavern. As long as you scrub them clean they are fine, no matter what was in the bottles! (Posted on 1/28/12)
Caveat emptor Review by 1000 Bottle of Beer on the Wall
A reminder for all homebrewers. Many commercial brews come in the classic form ... but it's important to have a bottle that will endure. Weigh your bottles! If a bottle comes in at 7 oz, it's OK, but not really heavy enough. Recycle them, don't refill them. A good bottle for homebrew should weigh in at 8 oz or more. How much do these bottles weigh? Good question. (Posted on 1/18/12)
go scrounge some bottles and wash them. seriously. Review by dill
seriously... these are the same or lesser quality than any non twist-off brown bottles. worried about removing labels? don't, you'll quickly figure out which ones come totally off after less than an hour of soaking and learn to pick those brands out of your local bar recycling bin. wash 'em up good, sanitize... and you've just saved natural resources and $$. (Posted on 12/16/11)
Yep its a Bottle Review by Chris
Does exactly what a brown bottle should do, and at a good price. The cardboard case comes in handy! (Posted on 10/29/11)
Better than cleaning! Review by C4Brewing
Old bottles with who only knows what's in them. For the price, you can't go wrong. (Posted on 10/14/11)
Perform as a bottle should Review by Joe
What can you say about a bottle?

The cardboard box they come in is real handy for storing your beer... much better than a stack of loose 6-packs.

I have 4 cases of these bottles, in addition to 4 cases of Sam Adams bottles, and thought it may be useful to base my review on a comparison of the two. There are two key differences that I noted. My Sam Adams bottles are slightly heavier (assuming that means thicker) as well as slightly darker than the NB bottles. If they are indeed thicker, the darker color would result. I don't think those differences are good, bad, or otherwise, but were just worth sharing.

As noted in other reviews, they were well packaged, and arrived in pristine condition. (Posted on 5/11/11)
Very Pleased Review by Deb
I was a little hesitant to order glass bottles, but they arrived faster than expected without so much as a nick or crack. Excellent packing and service!
I ordered 2 cases and they arrived in perfect condition today.
The box with dividers to hold the bottles is a bonus. Thanks (Posted on 2/25/11)
Holds liquid, is brown. Review by Jon
I bought a case of these because I couldn't drink two cases fast enough. I am ashamed of myself.

No broken bottles thus far, no chips, and they even hold liquid. Simply amazing, amiright?????

5 pints. Afterall, they're BOTTLES. (Posted on 2/16/11)
Great Bottles Review by William
I got two cases of these for my first homebrew in a long time. They came packaged really well and they also come in a cardboard case. The bottles are your average brown bottle but the look pristine not even a chip or crack to be seen. (Posted on 2/10/11)
