A group of doctors and nurses are having beers in a bar after work. The sound of a car accident is heard and everyone rushes out. The bartender enters from the back and begins cleaning up, placing all the beer bottles no a tray. Everyone returns to see the bottles all mixed. One doctor, however, spots his beer and resumes drinking. How did he know?

Typo fix: "placing all the beer bottles ON a tray."

Does he see something? On the bottle? Inside the bottle? Somewhere else? Did he change the bottle somehow? Remove stickers? Pick on the stickers? Or is there something different with the other bottles, while his looks unchanged? Lipstick relevant?

is his bottle different than the others to begin with? different shape? color? type of beer?
did he spit in it? (from an OLD joke)
did he put something in it? such as a lemon wedge, or other garnish?
relevant at all that they're doctors and nurses? or were they just willing to cooperate, for the sake of the LTPF?

Are the contents of the bottle relevant? Could this just as well be a juice bar?

Is the one doctor male, while all other doctors and the nurses are female?

Did the doctor own that beer company, so it was his beer?

Different brands?

Is the reason the bartender put it on a tray because he thought they didn't want their beers anymore? Did he hear the car accident? Was it a car accident? Relevant?

SPOILER ALERT! I think this was answered. I initially wanted to make it more confusing by having some lipstick-wearing men on the scene, but opted against it. Good job everyone

amazing, isn't it, that one can conjure -- or not -- lipstick-wearing men, at will? they might have had a good time; I'll be sure to invite some into the next puzzle I post.
