I have heard that light can harm your beer and I don't dispute this
point. However, I use mostly clear bottles since I find it's much
eaisier to verify their cleanliness. My beer spends most of it's life
in a carboard case in a closet where there's no light. Once a bottle
gets into the refrigerator, it usually doesn't last long. Plus, if
you think about it, the beer really won't be exposed to much light
in the frige, unless you have kids who leave the door open all day.

So, I say: relax, don't worry, use any color glass that makes you
happy...
