Title: 750 ml bottle venders.....??
Post by: resto3 on March 17, 2011, 06:54:44 am
Does anyone have a lead where I can get 750 ml bottle at a good price?  I need about 3 or 400 of the and $26.00 for a case of 12 is a bit steep>  There has to be a better priced vender than the LHBS.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

assuming you're not professional, and that these won't be for sale (and also assuming, perhaps falsely, that time is not of the essence), have you considered asking your local beer bars to save bottles for you? I've had pretty good luck with that in the past. free is good. maybe promise them a full bottle or two.

I'm not a Pro and these are just homebrews.  Thanks for the idea. There isn't much in the way of good beer bars around here.  I will try the two places I know that would probably be able to help.

Will this work? http://www.beer-wine.com/products/belgian-beer-bottles-beer-cork-30-count

30 count for $10 - and I'm sure they'll do bulk. Shipping might cost you, but who knows.

That's just the corks.  The bottles themselves are 12 for $19.95

Have you tried asking your LHBS if they'll cut you a deal on 30 cases?  I'm pretty sure mine would.
