    I don't know. I've never had any beer in blue bottles. I typically buy beer in brown bottles. I know beer in green bottles, like Heineken, tends to get skunky.

    Found this but no word on blue bottles.

    light-struck or skunk beer is due to visible light between 400-500 nanometers in wavelength (the blue end of the spectrum) and ultraviolet light, which has a wavelength of less than 400 nm. Brown bottles block out light under 500nm, and green bottles block light below 400nm, which is why the occasional Heineken will taste off. And, clear glass provides zero protection against light, which is why Corona advertisers cleverly suggest you drink their brew with a slice of lime.

    I know about the light effects on beer, so a blue bottle is almost the same use as a brown one?

    What kind of beer is in blue bottles?

    I've tried a lot of different beer, including quite a few microbrews/imports, and I haven't seen any beer in blue bottles. Even Wild Blue blueberry lager is in brown bottles.

    My favorite beer is Dragon's Milk from New Holland Brewing. However, a 6-pack is probably more expensive than a case of Bud LIght.

    I also like Dogfish Head IPA.

    A blue bottle would block most of the blue spectrum (hence the blue appearance). The darker the blue, the better. However, It would probably vary by manufacturer on whether or not it blocked UV light as well.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I'll definitely ask the store where I buy beer if they can get it. They have other kinds of New Holland beer.
