Carl, don't worry your pretty little head about it. Everyone knows you're the coolest/smartest/most humble/most handsome person here. We're all just jealous.

American champagne bottles will accept a standard crown cap. It is only the European ones that need a larger cap.

Boulevard's Smokestack series comes in brown 750ml that need a 29mm crown. It's possible they're importing these bottles from Europe, but that seems like a waste of money, and I don't think they're that dumb. There's probably a North American source for 29mm crown bottles, like maybe this place: http://www.unitedbottles.com/catalogue/wine-champagne.php

You could argue Quebec is basically European, but I think some European people might disagree with you.

Exactly - I didn't mean source, I meant bottle style. On that page, "American Sparkling" is the only bottle that takes 26mm crown caps.

The beer page has what you're looking for: http://www.unitedbottles.com/catalogue/beer.php

Unfortunately, you're looking at minimum orders of 1200+. You'll need to find a few friends to share :) I can't share exact pricing, but they are over $0.50 and under $1.00 each... plus shipping, etc.
