I watched Reign over Me last night (with Sandler and Chedle) which was a good movie. But I could not help but notice Sandler was drinking clear glass bottles of Barq's Root Beer during the movie. I dont know if this was just a movie prop or if somewhere out there actually sells these root beer bottles. Has anyone seen them before recently?

I think they are mostly found in the deep south, from what I seem to remember reading here. A quick search of the bevboard turned up this:

I also found them going back a few years in Florida, in the panhandle. I also have seen them in Arkansas.

That bottle also appeared in the 1999 The Coca-Cola Company Annual Report...

I'm in the middle of a road trip right now, and yesterday briefly stopped in a grocery store in Clinton, Arkansas, and saw they had the Barq's 12oz glass 6packs. I bought one, pretty expensive though, like 5.50.

Edit - here's a picture of the 6pack I got:
