Beer products are typically identified not just through their taste but through the bottle that is used to house them in as well. There are many kinds of brewski bottles. All these are resplendent of the long winding history of beer as well as its reputation as a popular pastime among friends and even families.
The Stubby Beer Bottle
This is by far the most common kind of ale bottle in the world. The stubby brewski bottle typically has dimensions enough to store beer products that range in sizes from 330 milliliters up to 375 milliliters. That is basically equal to about 11.2 to 11.6 fluid ounces up to 12.7 to 13.2 fluid ounces. However, in Australia, the stubby beer bottle has a different standard for its dimensions. The capacity of stubby brewski bottles in Australia is up to two liters, hence they have a slightly different name, the Darwin stubby ale bottle. On the other hand, in Canada, there was the old Canadian stubby beer bottle that has a capacity of 341 milliliters, or an equivalent of 11.5 to 12 fluid ounces.
The stubby brewski bottle once became the standard in the United States, but now, it is used very little. The standard size brewski bottle in the U. S. now is the long neck ale bottle. However, the stubby ale bottle is still widely used in European countries.
Long Neck Beer Bottles
The long neck ale bottle is referred to as the ISB, or the standard in the brewski bottling industry, in the United States. Long neck ale bottles in the U. S. can hold 341 to 355 milliliters of malt liquor in them. The 341 milliliters, by the way, is the standard this time for long neck brewski bottles in Canada. For Australia, on the other hand, its long neck beer bottles have a much bigger dimension, enough to hold 700 up to 750 milliliters of malt liquor in them.
The London Brewers’ Standard Beer Bottle
This ale bottle sprang up in the United Kingdom during the latter part of the 20th century. This ale bottle has dimensions that fit half pint and pint sizes of ale products. Eventually, London brewers’ standard brewski bottles began to have dimensions enough for ale products that come in nips or 1/3 of a pint, as well as quarts, or double a pint.
The pijpje comes from the Dutch form of “the little pipe.” It is basically the industry standard beer bottle that is used widely in the Netherlands as well as in other Dutch speaking countries. The pijpje is also known by its other name, de Nederlandse Bierfles. It has dimensions for 300 milliliters of ale products.
