(The US "stubby" was not a graceful as the Canadian stubby, a bit "squat-er" and had a slight shoulder).

As for the second Schlitz bottle (in the smaller ad) which is similar in shape to the current Miller High Life bottle- I've seen them called "select" in old brewers publications.

That design was often used by brewers for their pricier beers while their "regular" or "popular" priced beers were still in that US version of a stubby bottle, circa 1960-1970's.

This one, with the large paper neck label that covers the crown was an "Michelob" hour-glass imitation bottle that Schlitz put some of it's beers in in it's final years as they tried to "re-position" the beer.

(Pabst put Andecker, it's Michelob-fighter super-premium beer, in a similar imitation hourglass bottle for awhile).

Well aging beer is unfortunately not as simple as letting a beer sit on a store shelf.

Beer only ages correctly under the proper conditions.

The two Schlitz bottles you've posted (one here and the one you added later and also posted on Beer Advocate) are two different designs.

Well, for me anyway.) When Rolling Rock switched from that "select" style for it's "throw-aways" in the early '80's to a version of a "squat long neck" (think- today's Sierra Nevada bottle) to better imitate the standard silk screened RR returnable, they called the select style they had been using "grenade shaped". That is why I didn't post a picture of the Miller bottles because they were clear and the majority of the those types of bottles were brown if my memory serves me.

What is the name of the bottles that Miller High life uses?

I know what Long Necks are but I was curios about the other types of bottles. Here is a link to another picture from a Schlitz add that has the bottles in question in it. -Beerking "Asking whether computers can think is like asking if submarines can swim."

The bottle I really wanted to know about was definitely the second picture.
