Ray's World of Beer Bottles: Values, Buy & Sell

I often receive requests for the value of beer bottles that people have come across. There are few reliable sources for this information. The market is small, so you'd have to be lucky enough to find a collector interested in acquiring your specific bottle.

Try browsing auction sites such as Bottles less than 30 years old often sell for just $1-3.

It is in a 12 fl. oz. bottle with the top and beer still inside.

Information Request: New Albion Brewing company - Sonoma, CA - 12/3/04

My only interest in beer is because of my grandfather. He has his own small seller/pub under a modest home in Fremont, Ca (SF Bay Area). He likes to make his own beer and wine (sometimes good & " not). Well I found 2 beer bottles for him, for display (or reuse), and I don't know anything about them but would like to when I give as a gift we can have something to talk about. I found some info on the internet about the establishment year of the company but nothing else.
It's the New Albion Brewing company in Sonoma, CA (I liked the bottles because their local) and I have 2 bottles 1 Ale, 1 Stout. The labels are in pretty good condition -a tear here and there, they have a sailing boat (pirate type) pictured. Both are amber-brown color glass bottles, the Ale bottle has a blue label and #'s 12, 72, & 3 & a B on the bottom. The Stout bottle has a light green label and #'s 69, 15, something I can't make out, plus the number writing styles are different on each bottle (maybe ones older?) . Then at the bottom of the labels they say "return for deposit". Well that's it and if you have any interesting info on them and not to sound greedy but any estimated value, it would be great to hear from you. thanks and best regard,

Value needed: Coors clown bottle - 10/10/04

Hi, A few years ago I bought a "Coors clown bottle". Suposedly they were designed and produced without the authority of coors by a coors bottle designer. He suposedly produced 500 of them, but coors destroyed all but one case of 24 that the designer snuck out of the plant.
I wrote to Coors and they confirmed that the bottles were produced for only one 8-hour run on one production line in 1973. I am curious if the bottle is as rare as I've heard, and also what the value might be. Thanks,

For Sale: Coors cans and bottles (110 pieces) - 9/15/04

Need advice:   I recently came across 110 Coors cans and some Coors bottles. Each is different and many are unique. I haven't the slightest how to research the value of these items. I do want to sell them to a collector whom will appreciate them.
One was a promo for a million dollars if it played music when opened. All of these items are still originally sealed and never opened. I believe the "saver" (not a collector) began saving these about 30 years ago. One has a picture of the late John Wayne, another is a route 66 promo. Most are 12 0z, some are not. I would appreciate any advice on how to sell these 110 items. Any serious collector may e-mail me. Thank-you,

Value needed: Budweiser Beer Bottles c. 1900 - 9/8/04

Hello, I just recently purchased 5 Budweiser Beer Bottles all of which are clear glass and I assume by where they came from that they were made in early 1900. What type of value do these have? The labels are still on the bottles and they each have some type of maybe batch # on the bottom of the bottle. These bottles were inside a barn wall which was built in the late 1800's so they were well preserved...the carrying case is pretty deteriated though. Can you or anyone help me?
