Vintage Packaging – Stubby Beer Bottles

August 11, 2010 | 5 Comments

“The stubby beer bottle was Canada’s national beer bottle from 1961 to 1984. In 1961 the Dominion Brewers Association (now the Brewers Association of Canada) replaced the heavy, bulky, non-standard 12oz “pint” and 22oz “quart” beer bottles with a new more efficient designed “stubby” bottle to be used by all Canadian breweries.”

    I remember Mum and Dad telling me all the beers in Canada used to come in stubby bottles. Great post, it’s great to see what they where talking about.

    Great labels on the bottles. Have a few of the labels. Like to collect beer labels. Can’t get any new labels. Any one have some comments where I can turn to for help
    Thanks (John from Newfoundland )
