That's a twist-off bottle, IIRC.

I did try their new Miller Chill, but it was just an attempt at cutting into the Corona brand with the Tiquila style lemon and salt added crowd.

I think quite a few of the commercial brands do. They are brown and look just like a glass bottle. We had a local rock & country music festival last summer in a parking lot and those plastic bottles were all over the place at the end of the night. Maybe they are "optional" these days. That could have been a mess on that asphalt with glass, so in that sense they are a good idea. I agree that Miller or Miller Lite (or both) is one brand. I think they also had Busch Lite.
Actually that's where I got this idea about the barroom brawl, when I saw a couple guys hitting each other over the head with the empty bottles, at that festival. Of course they were just having fun, not fighting, or they would have been made to leave by the cops who were all over the place.

Cheap beers served at sports stadiums and topless bars. Bud, Bud light, Miller, Coors, etc.
Beer in a plastic bottle is a sin against G-d and nature if you ask me.

Plastic bottles are small sins. The stuff they put in 'em is the big sin.

To remove self-stick labels (waterproof glue), a soak of a few days in washing soda (sodium carbonate) will loosen the labels and turn the glue to a jelly-like substance that peels right off. Note that you need to peel it off while it is still saturated with washing soda; do not rinse first or the glue hardens again.
Use about 2-3 cups of Na2CO3 per small bucket of cold water. Can be reused many times.

No idea. It's pure Na2CO3 sold as "All Natural Super Washing Soda" by Arm & Hammer in 55 oz boxes, found in the household/laundry aisle of the supermarket.
["Natural" sodium carbonate? They've got a strange concept of "natural"...]

live 1/2 a mile from either Yuengling brewery,,,get the Premium returnables cheap...4 hour soak with One-Step loosens the labels quite well. I bet an ammonia sol'n would work more quickly.

Years ago, when all bottles were returnable, the brewery used labels that they could easily wash off when they reused the bottle. Now, when the bottles are no longer, for the most part, reused, they are more concerned that their label will stay on if the bottle gets wet before being sold.
My experience is that a paper label is easily removed by soaking the bottle, perhaps for as long as a day. However, some producers now use a foil or plasticized paper label, and those cannot be easily soaked off, as the water can't get through the label to the glue. The only way I have succeeded with such bottles is by lacerating the label enough that the water can reach the glue; sometimes you even have to take a razor blade to the label to do this. I don't have much current experience, as I amassed an impressive collection of bottles some years ago, and now devote my time to refilling and reemptying them.

Budwieser bottles have labels that come off in the cooler in an hour or less, even the clear bud light label.
