Swing-top Bottles...B├╝gelflaschen

While I love using these (.5L, .75L, 1L, and even 2L) for homebrewing, I do have a complaint. The lack of a lip at the opening means drops of beer run down the side of the bottle when you tilt the bottle up during pouring, for example, to fill two .5L glasses from one 1L bottle. It's sloppy and not a very German design. The superior thickness of the bottle glass is a great improvement over typical American bottles though.
