  • Enjoy your beverage.
  • Return your empties and get your $0.10 refund, just like other beverage containers.
  • BottleDrop will take care of the rest.

BottleDrop Refillables are sorted, washed, inspected, and delivered back to Oregon’s craft beverage producers.

BottleDrop Refillable Frequently Asked Questions

BottleDrop Refillable bottles are special glass bottles that can be washed and refilled up to 25 times, making them the most sustainable package for craft beverages. They are made in Oregon from recycled glass and are exclusive to the State of Oregon. Some of Oregon’s best beverage producers are using these bottles, which are specially marked with “BottleDrop Refillable” on them so that they can’t be missed. Once they are washed and thoroughly inspected, we then re-distribute them back out to our participating beverage producers.

More craft beverage makers are using BottleDrop Refillables all the time. Look for products from Gigantic Brewing, Buoy Beer, Coopers Hall Winery, Double Mountain Brewing, Worthy Brewing, and Bayern Brewing at your local grocery store or bottle shop. More products will be available in BottleDrop Refillables soon! See our full list of Refillables partners.
