Ask Real Beer
Do you know of any domestic beers that are still bottled in the
short "stubby" non-returnable type of bottles that were popular up
until the late 1970's. Any info would be appreciated.
Beer Dave writes: In the late 70's and early 80's a number of glass
manufacturers merged, closed or were bought out. Because of this a
number of glass molds and designs were eliminated. The style you are
referring to is the MOD II design. The last brewer to use this style was
the Evansville Brewing Company of Evansville, Indiana. I also miss those
little brown grenades.
