We found a bottle of Club beer, stubby bottle. Yes, found it in the wall of our house, built right into the wall. The stamp on the glass says 83, does that mean it was made in 1983?

My husband thinks it could be drinkable, I am thinking not, unless he is joking.

In response to post #2.

Hello Jenn

I'm not sure about the date stamp, but I do think it is the year. Not all bottles has the year so I think it may have been introduced later on. The beer is not drinkable ... you might notice lots of junk floating inside if you give it a a shake and it might smell like vinegar. I emptied some old cans of Canadian beer and most of them smelled like vinegar.

Leonard,

I've prepared some home brew and would like to store it in stubby style bottles. I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere. I'm looking for 100 bottles. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Eddie

Hello Eddie

The only option I think you have is to contact the Brick Brewery in Ontario and ask them were they get their stubbies from. My experience with trying to buy plastic bottles is that the supplier will not want to deal with a small retail sale of 100 bottles.

Or maybe you could try one of those return bottle depots in Ontario.

Re: soda pop stubby


In response to post #6.

Hello Dave .... In Canada there was The Pop Shoppe. According to their website they were established in 1969 and went out of business in 1983. Peter Pocklington tried to buy them in 1978, but looks like the owners wouldn't sell to him.

The Pop Shoppe has just recently been revived and is now using a long necked bottle. Their website is at: http://www.thepopshoppe.com



I believe the bottles pictured above were the stubby style bottles they used back in the 70's and early 80's. The pop was good and it was very cheap.

New Bottle and Cap Images


I have made some much needed changes to this site. The biggest improvement was replacing the stubby images I took in 2003 with newer - and much better - images I took in 2007. Images of the bottle caps, or crowns as they are also called have been added in the "Stubby Caps" section.

A "About" page has been added with some additional information that may be useful.

Trichter


"La Bolduc" comes in stubbies; it is (was?) made by Unibroue of Chambly (bought by Sleemans). It calls itself "old style" beer - Mary Travers (la Bolduc) was a popular Quebec thirties/ forties patter singer.
Having first brewed in 1975, I am close to my 300th brew with the same set of stubbies (which became unreturnable only last year). The sharp shoulder makes them easy to decant cleanly (a necessity for homebrew - although the dregs make a palatable vitamin B supplement.

La Bolduc


In response to post #11

Hello Owen ..... Thanks for the post mentioning "La Bolduc", I did a Google search and come up with an image for that bottle.


La Bolduc

I also use to brew my own beer and bottle it in the stubby beer bottles, the stubbies were also good for bottling Hires Root Beer from the kits. I didn't know what a trichter was so I Googled it and come up with the image below. Must be another name for a funnel used in bottling beer.

In response to post #13

Hello bjb .... I believe Brick just recently discontinued the stubby.




In response to post #14

Hello Ron .... I would check the completed Ebay auctions to get a good idea what the OV stubbies would be worth.




In response to post #15

Hello Chris .... I assume those Heidelberg bottles are the "barrel" bottles which was a brief experiment by Carling O'Keefe around 1975 in using an alternative bottle to the stubby bottle.

In response to post #16

I remember the Uncle Ben's pop in the stubbies also.

RE: Heidelberg Barrel Beer Bottle


In response to post #18

Hello Chris .... An Ebay "Heidelberg Beer Bottle" search under the completed auctions brings up one empty Heidelberg barrel bottle with an asking price of $14.99 US Dollars, it did not sell. From what I can remember from past auctions these bottles are not very popular or valuable for collectors.

Wilson Pop Works


In response to post #20

I googled "Wilson Pop Works" and couldn't find anything. It must have been a small bottling operation selling the pop only in Ontario.

In response to post #23 and #24

The Molson Canadian and Uncle Ben's Malt Liqour bottles would be from the mid 1970's.




In response to post #25

You could try Craigslist to see if anyone would want them. http://nanaimo.en.craigslist.ca/

RE: Correction to your history of the st


In response to post #27

Hello Dave ....... Thanks for your post. My original date of 1984 came from me estimating the date of the last stubby, I stopped collecting the Stubbies when the breweries stopped using them in British Columbia around 1984.

Next time I edit this site I will change the date from 1984 to 1986.

Re: Price of Beer in 1976


In response to post #29

In British Columbia a case of 12 beer was $4.00 back in 1976. Ontario's prices must have been very close.

In response to post #33

Hello Greg ......... 283 is the number of stubby bottles I have in my collection. I only collected them from about 1976 to 1983, and I would guess that there must be at least 1000 different stubby labels.

I doubt I will ever get into collection them again and my collection is stored away for now.
