Source for smaller bottles?

Hello:

We’re bottling a barleywine in a few months and would like to put it in smaller bottles (6-8 oz) rather than standard 12 oz. But we’ve had no luck finding them and we don’t think we can drink 40+ Rogue Old Crust. or Imperial Stouts (one of the few beers available in my area in that size bottle) in time.

Do you know of anyone on-line selling them?

Cool! I did not know to look specifically for for 6 ouncers.

Thanks!

and miller high life makes small 6oz which everyone should be able to get, yeah there clear but may be the cheapest route

Wouldn’t they be twist off?

not sure, I have not bought them in a long time. I know there are some that are not, not sure if they were high life or not

We’ve checked all the links in the first couple of pages of the google search, and done several others with related search headings (both before and after the suggestions) and still have not found suitable bottles.

There are some offerings of 6 oz champagne-style bottles that are supposed to use either champagne corks or caps (which I questions based on the photos and thickness of the lip on the bottle opening) but they are all green, which not be good for long-term cellaring of a barley wine. Otherwise, it is nothing but bottles that require corks.

Those commercial beers that use 6-8 oz bottles are either green or clear, and many/most are twist-off.

I also found another thread on the forum of someone looking for the same thing, and there were no useful suggestions there either.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway. If I do find something I’ll post it to the forum. It looks like others are looking for them, too.

green or clear are fine if you are cellaring them properly.
the champange ones caps fit fine.
rolling rock makes pry off 6oz painted labels but probably the cheapest route if there still distributed
corona bottles
coke bottles
there are a lot of options

+1 on the champagne bottles. They take a cap just fine and I keep them in the box they came in while they cellar to keep the light out.

If you’re not bottling your barley wine for a few months, why couldn’t you just go with the Rogue bottles you mentioned?

I just bottled a batch of cherry melomel with these bottles from NB:

They take a regular cap and hold around 6 oz. They are cute little buggers.
