I can’t go digging so I might as well buy some bottles. (UPDATED WITH PHOTOS)

The last thing I like to do is spend money on bottles when I can dig them for free but there’s to much snow to dig and I think i see some local beer bottles in this bunch that I’ve been after for a few years. Going to the guys house today to take a look and really hope those aqua bottles are what I think they are. Besides that I think I see a pre pro Grand Rapids beer in the bunch which I already have. Other than that there is no real age to the group but some of the paper labels are neat. Could be a good deal for 20 bucks.

What do you guys think about the beers with the bail type closure? I’m doubting that there real old. Only buying the bunch to score the auqa beers anyways lol


Wow I couldn’t be happier with this purchase I just scored 3 alpena beers and a nice alpena soda.
I got to the guys house talked bottles for a bit paid him for the bunch O bottles and then he offered to show me his basement/bottle room. This place was awesome I wish I took some pictures because it’s to much to describe. I got to see my first alpena hutch in person which was great. And so many other cool bottles. The paper label beers are new to me but interesting to say the least and will find a spot in my garage for them.

Here’s the reason I bought the bunch O bottles.

ok, those are all pretty common dating to around early to mid 1960's except for the Labatt's & foreign one is newer. LEON.
