    Well, my glass bottle reference site is progressing ( http://www.glassbottlesoda.org/ ). I just got it on-line yesterday. Let me know of any more that you know of and thanks to those of you who have helped so far (with pics and info).

        I'm scratching my head, trying to remember if Ale-8-1 sells direct from the warehouse. I don't think they do.

        I was there a few months ago -- they have a gift shop in the front of the place, and they also had a vending machine that sold their products. Ale-8-1, diet Ale-8-1, NuGrape, and some sort of bottled water (in PET). I think the NuGrape was a recent addition to their lineup.

              Good to finally have a combined database for this!

              Don't forget the Coke bottler in Winona, MN - Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite in returnable 16oz bottles.

                    Here's still the green dimple bottles available, the first Sprite bottles released here were the ones with the red spot in the "i", Sprite was released in 1986 here, before that, we only had Coke, Fanta and a bottler brand called Pop (discontinued thirteen years ago).

                    Now the green dimple bottles have the new Sprite logo...

                      going off-topic slightly:

                      Now the green dimple bottles have the new Sprite logo...
                      That's plastic and the glass ones right?
                      I'm assuming all the PET bottles under 2L also are dimple down there as well, like they are in the US?

                      I see Mexi-Sprites in hispanic sections of grocery stores sometimes. Even bought and drank one a few months ago. It had a different logo on it than I've seen before, similar to the latest one I'd seen on the US returnables, but with round circles instead of the lemon/lime shapes. Here's a comparison shot between the mexiSprite and one of the Winona bottles:

                        2 liter bottles also... all the returnables have the dimple shape: 12 oz. glass, .5 liter glass (that you showed) and 2 liter PET... and the non-returnables like 600 ml (first pic), 1 liter and 2 Liter(second pic) have the dimple shape, with the exception of the 250 ml bottle, the 3 liter bottle and the 2.5 liter bottle (third pic) and as you noticed, the mexican logo never had the lemon-lime shaped spots in the "i", I wonder why...

                          Some 30 years ago, it was the 8pk returnable glass bottles with the metal caps.

                            I thought Winona bottled the little 8 oz. coke bottles still. Does anyone still fill those small ones?
