Why choose brown glass bottles?

The beer bottle glass color you choose for your homebrew will greatly impact its taste. Dark amber or brown glass greatly reduces UV light from spoiling the beer. Sure, any colored glass beer bottles filter out both visible and ultraviolet light. Brown glass blocks out more light than green, making it the optimal choice for bottling homebrew. Dark beers also absorb more light than light beers, making it essential to store stouts, bocks, and the like in brown bottles, while lighter beers can be stored in green bottles.

Since, clear glass beer bottles don't block any light, they are the least desirable choice for long term beer storage, with the exception of any specific beverage whose color was the primary characteristic you were trying to stress, such as a red ale.

Love My E.Z.Cap Swing Caps & Bottles

Hello...

I received my E.Z.Cap Swing Caps and Brown Glass Bottles. The packaging was tight and professional and all arrived in excellent condition.

I refuse to buy products made in China, and will avoid if at all possible (usually 98% of the time), due to their deceptive and corrupt business practices and usually very poor consumer product quality. Prior to purchasing the bottles from Northern Brewer, I noticed a review stating that the buyer was told by Northern that the product was indeed manufactured in Canada, yet when he received the bottles, the packaging stated Made in China. I communicated with Northern regarding this information and I was informed by customer service that these bottles were indeed sourced from the Canadian manufacturer.

My E-Mail inquiry to Northern was addressed immediately (within 15 minutes). The customer service gal was very professional and responsive. Based on her response, I purchased a box of 12 bottles and an extra set of Swing Caps.

When I received them, I too received them in packaging stating they were made in China. I then called E.Z.Cap in Canada (from Chicago) and spoke with the Sales/Marketing exec. When asked how I could verify authentic E.Z.Cap bottles, he indicated their logo was embossed on the bottom of each. Indeed they were. He was also very transparent about their origin, and acknowledged, without hesitation, that they were manufactured in China according to their specs. So, I was satisfied that they were not knockoffs. It may serve Northern well to disclose that the bottles are produced overseas, but at the specifications of E.Z.Cap. Northern might also be better served to mention that the molded in logo on the bottom of each bottle guarantees their authenticity. This may relieve some confusion, when customers receive the bottles.

E.Z.Cap manufactures the Swing Top Caps in their Canadian facilities, not the bottles. However, I was satisfied with my communications with both Northern Brewer and E.Z.Cap. I have purchased other products from Northern, and believe them to be a first class supplier. E.Z.Cap was also very customer service orientated, and does not operate under a cloak & dagger business model. Also, it may serve E.Z.Cap better to standardize their logo, and demand that suppliers use it properly, so that customers can be assured of authenticity. You don't see the Coca-Cola logo with several variations. On their website (E.Z.Cap); On their bottle (E Z.Cap); On their box Packaging (EZ Cap); By suppliers (Any Variation).

I will definitely purchase from Northern again and trust the E.Z.Cap products.

Great Solid Bottles

Love these. Definitely get a solid seal out of the swing top.

Heads up - it takes a lot of force to close these. A bit less force to open, but you'll need to put some effort into it!

Flip top bottles

The bottles are working for me. I am using them for Kombucha. I would like a little bigger opening for pouring things into the bottles.
