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.

Quick and high quality

Ordered 4 cases of bottles. 2 individual bottles were broken so Northern Brewer replaced them with another whole case. Everything was seamless and items were received promptly - totally worth it.

Excellent bottles

These swing tops are perfect for brewers like me who enjoy bottling beer without caps. I also really like the size.

EZ cap bottles

Bottled my first ever home brew using these and some 12 oz bottles with the capper. Both worked well. I prefer the simplicity of the EZ caps, although the capper wasn't much of a hassle. The only draw back to the ez caps is the fizz pops won't fit through the neck without breaking them first. I went with ez prime instead with good results. It would be nice to have a slimmer profile fizz pop that fits the ez cap bottles.
