Well gee, everyone knows all superior beers are bottled in green bottles. I mean, that's why Heineken is so great.
I've started just avoiding single sixers of European pilsners. Just buy 'em in a closed case to avoid light problems. Hey, maybe I'll go get some Staropramen after work . . . -- ***************************************************************** Dan Iwerks thinks that the beer you're drinking probably sucks.

Or for those of you living appropriately northward, duck across the Canadian border. PU is available in cans up there, or at least it is in BC. No light problems, you betcha.
Or just buy "Czechvar" ... it's packaged in brown glass, the way it oughta be. -- DGS

You sure about that? I could be misremembering, but I recall getting Czechvar in green bottles right after it hit my area. It was pretty good. A week later bought from the same source it was skunky (and still in green bottles). Or do they do a Spaten and use green 12-ouncers and brown 1/2-liter bottles? -- Joel Plutchak Boneyard Union of Zymurgical Zealots

Yep - 12-ouncers in green glass, 0.5 liters in brown. If you can get the 1/2 liters, no reason to bother with 12-ouncers anyway. [Czech|Bud]var is meant to be drunk a half-liter at a time. -- DGS

Date code won't help you -- it only takes a few hours of the right sort of light and BAM! Skunked. If it's in a cardboard box, though, it should be okay. Unfortunately you have to buy at least a 12-pack to get that, but fortunately it's a good beer. >Why they >still bottle it in green glass is beyond me.
I don't get it either.

Unfortunately, no 0.5-liter containers of Budvar 'round here. -- Joel Plutchak Boneyard Union of Zymurgical Zealots
