Do they still sell those little bottles of French lagers? My parents always had them at home when I was a kid. Don't seem to see them now.

They actually made it back on to the jars for a while in the mid to late 90's and you could also get enamel badges. I should have some somewhere as Robertson's and Just Juice (where I worked) shared a site (now a Heineken brewery).
