Title: (California) Bulk glass bottle suppliers?
Post by: pfooti on May 13, 2011, 05:26:34 PM
Hey forums,

I have a need for 22 oz bottles in rather large supply (not for homebrew beer, but other uses). I'm wondering if anybody has had any experience finding wholesale suppliers who would provide a couple hundred or so bottles. My LHBS (which is very nice) has a pretty good price of $1.00 per, but if I could find a way to drop the per-bottle price to $0.50 or so, my life would suddenly be a lot easier. I've found some wholesalers online, but they tend to be on the east coast and shipping wipes out pretty much all the gains made there.

Are you near any breweries that bottle in 22s?  If you ask really nicely they might order some for you.

Hmm, that's a really good idea. Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

Try California Glass:

I have never worked with them.
They might have a minimums of 1 pallet.

Good Luck.

Being on the east coast myself, do you recall which wholesalers you found out here?  I might want to keep that info stored in the back of my head for future reference.
