Topic tags/keywords: question

As part of a new range of cutting boards, I am in need of beer bottle caps.. so I am sending a cry for assistance in this matter… anyone out there who drinks beer [or spirits for that matter] could I please ask you to send me your caps… clean and unbent…For those who prefer to remain tea total, fancy crown seal lids from soft drink [soda] bottles are also required..

Although I am looking for any or all types of caps , pretty ones would be great.

Even though I too like a libation or three daily, I find that I can not supply the required numbers of tops…. hence the call for help…

It does not have to be heaps, any number would be appreciated.

Ful beer bottles with caps attached will also be accepted…LOL

Thank you all in advance.

Do you care picking up them by home? I will prepare a barbecue for that event

Sorry, no metal ones

Where would you like them sent? Do you have a separate Post Office box? Maybe it’s known as something different there. Wouldn’t be a good idea to post your address on the net. Of course I’d be glad to help, it would be nice to know I had something to do with one of your beauties, no matter how small a part that was.

Larry, I’m quite shocked. If there is one thing I never thought you would experience a shortage of, it’s beer bottle caps.

I would send some, but the total would be pitiful…........

Have you thought of making a friend of a bartender? Maybe trading him for a woodworking piece…........

They go through hundreds of caps in a single night.

Good luck on this endeavor!

It looks you need long holiday, just to keep you away from your shop for while.

Do a search for “beer bottle caps” on Ebay. There are sellers out there with boxes of caps for sale pretty cheap.

Wow…I’ll start removing them carefully and not throwing out my beer caps. I should have a few dozen by tomorrow. (That was a joke…say, 2 dozen.) I just got some Monty Python Holy Grail Ale…they are yours. Let me know your address and I’ll send you a bunch. How many are you looking for?

do they need to be tin caps? I’ve been drinking the ones with the srew off/on aluminum caps lately. The 16oz. instead if 12oz. size.

Not sure if you are interested in blank ones (not quite the same effect as the stories told by used ones) but Amazon or craftsy type stores sell them.

I’m supporting you in spirit. I don’t actually have any bottles, but I drank a lot of canned beer tonight. Hope this helps.
