Gift Guide: Grolsch-Style Swing Top Bottles

“Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?”

Remember that guy? That was one classy dude. I’m not sure what his plans were for that Grey Poupon mustard… maybe the world’s classiest hot dog. I bet he had some swanky beer to go with it too.

If you want to give a little style and sophistication to your homebrews, you need to check out Grolsch-style bottles, otherwise known as EZ cap bottles. They have a built-in swing top cap and gasket that latches closed with a strong steel wire assembly, which means you never have to cap these bottles. The caps have a reusable rubber gasket which makes a very strong seal.

Remember though, if you do use these bottles for your homebrew, you will be required to wear a tuxedo on bottling day.

What level of homebrewer would use it?

Anyone homebrewer who bottles beer can use these… so pretty much everybody.

What do I say when I give this gift to make me look super-knowledgeable?

“These Grolsch-style swing tops will make bottling day really easy, and you’ll look like one charming homebrewer drinking out of it.”

Why will the person I give it to think I’m awesome for giving it?

These bottles kind of speak for themselves. They’re a fun way to spice up the finished look of all of your homebrews. The swing tops will last a lifetime, too, by simply replacing the rubber gaskets every so often. They are a great addition to any homebrewer’s glassware.
