  1. Aw come on….. you guys…..

    Who puts beer in GREEN bottles??

    (the idea is to protect it from light, because light degrades, decomposes the beer. green just doesn’t work as well)

  2. Sounded good until I read they make Coors light. Thats a terrible American beer that would keep any alcoholic; perfectly sober. Yuck…. The varieties (looked) decent until I read that.

    Still wouldn’t mind visiting though,
    although my favorite is a Polish beer called “Tatra”.

  3. Here where i life(The Netherlands)almost all brands use green bottles for export,and brown bottles for the own Dutch market.
    And yes u have right,the darker the bottle the better the protection from light.
