The old Canadian 12 ounce beer bottle. A shorter, plumper, better bottle and Canadian icon.

According to Renster, these bottles were also popular in Australia. See Stubby.

15 Canadian breweries converted from green long-neck bottles to these compact amber stubbies on March 1, 1962. By 1964 stubbies were all over Canada. But, in 1983, with the introduction of the American brand, Miller High Life, stubbies started becoming extinct.
